Dear Tabby

You're a cat person or you're not. Democrats/Republicans, pro-choicers/pro-lifers, there's some give and take. Not with cats. If you're anti-mouser, don't go near Changing Hands Bookstore 'cause author/cartoonist Nicole Hollander is an uncompromising champion of the four-legged furballs. Best known for her syndicated cartoon Sylvia and best-seller 101 Reasons a Cat Is Better Than a Man, Hollander is now tackling the female-aging process with her razor wit and her new book Tales of Graceful Aging From the Planet Denial. Why fight it, Nic? You've got eight lives left, right?
