    I cat quite put my finger on it, but something tells me it should have been called “Decision At Dinner”…

  2. Tor Mented Says:

    Funny that it’s a Corgi book.
    Judging from their fixed, staring eyes, I think the decision was … to chase that laser pointer.

  3. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    Corgies of Doona…meet your new feline overlords.

  4. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    @Tor – you beat me to it!

    …and GSS 🙂

    They are standing for their national anthem.

  6. NomadUK Says:

    fred@5: Nah!

  7. Francis Boyle Says:

    Here in Australia a doona is a type of quilted blanket so I imagine the decision is whether to shred it or piss on it.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    @Fred, NomadUK: I suspect it was more like this

    (Or this: – the original mix was meaner but I can’t find a video with the 70s CoI film he sampled.)

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    @FB: Or on “Star Trek.”
    Ah doona think th’ shields wull withstand anither Klingon blast!

  10. Ryan Says:

    After the votes had been counted at Doona, the decision was that the “Nays” had defeated the “Yays”, but only by a whisker.

  11. JuanPaul Says:

    Quick! Call Confuse-A-Cat!

  12. The Blue Are Coming Says:


    The defeated “Yea” voters responded with catcalls.

    Time for some tuna!

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    GSS to the mouseover text.

    I read this book many decades ago, and while the aliens were cat-like, I don’t remember them all looking alike and staring en masse.

    @FB: why not both?

    @JuanPaul: too late for CoC?

  15. JJYoyo Says:

    If they are all in the same place and all staring in the same direction then I have to conclude that someone has finally learned how to herd cats.
    So this is obviously fiction, and not very science….

  16. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    Woohoo !

    I just subbed a cover 🙂

  17. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    @GSSxn – Mobile phone here. What’s the mouseover text say ?

  18. Emster Says:

    @Fred, Nomad, and Tat – I think you’re ready to see how the Decision at Doona really went down:

    @GSS x-n – I also vaguely recall reading a couple of the books in this series. If this was the first cover I had seen, I’d have given it a hard pass.

    @JuanPaul – ah, childhood well wasted. Again, no idea where my car key is at this moment, but I remember that skit vividly…

  19. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Looks like they’ve been hitting the gym (clearly, not terrestrial cats.)

  20. Tor Mented Says:

    @The Blue: It says Pussy Galore.

  21. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    Thanks, Tor !

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @JJYoyo: More likely @Tor’s idea of a laser pointer getting them all fascinated at the same spot. Or maybe an extraterrestrial mouse. (Can’t be a bird — none of them are chattering)

    @Emster: I think I read it in this cover:

    Which is also meh, but at least the aliens don’t look like cloned moggies who’ve been hitting the gym.

    Why “at” Doona? That’s the name of the whole planet, it should be “on”.

  23. Tat Wood Says:

    @GSS ex-Noob: ‘Decision at Doona’ is every audience-member’s choice as to when to bail when watching ‘Jupiter Rising’ or ‘Cloud Atlas’.

    Or it’s whether to have a dessert after a Goan Shrimp. Just five minutes from this cinema.

  24. Hammy Says:

    The Decision at Doona that I want to be made is:

    is a group of Zombie Clone Cats still called a clowder(Yes/No)?

  25. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Hammy: Zowder, obvs.

  26. NomadUK Says:

    TM@20: Then maybe it should be retitled ‘Decision at Druuna’.

  27. A. R. Yngve Says:

    I must say I am sorely disappointed. Not one cheap joke referring to CATS: The Musical! What’s the world coming to?

  28. Tor Mented Says:

    @ARY: It must have slipped my Memory.

  29. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: There are no putative buttholes to see in this shot. Doesn’t look like any singing or dancing either.

    Maybe this is the much less successful rip-off, “Catatonic Cats”.
