This book tells an imagined Czechoslovakian folk tale
"once a year the nine cat ladies of Czechoslovakia embark on the sixty-mile walk to the City of Prague to buy cat food, they and their ancestors have been making this pilgrimage for many, many years, it is part of the Czechoslovakian history and folklore.
The locals await the ladies visit with great apprehension and fear, the cat ladies tend to keep to themselves, but the locals still keep their distance just in case, there are many rumors involving these strange women.
The residents of Prague try to keep their cats locked up inside but it makes little difference; the stench of the ladies is simply irresistible to felines and they follow the ladies back to the campsite.
No outsider has ever visited the ladies site, however one can only imagine the amount of cats they must have up there.
Locals are very weary of the ladies, they are mysterious looking, have a strong odour and are completely mute. However, it is just assumed that they are crazy cat ladies, they love cats and cats love them.
However, they hide a terrifying secret that not even the locals could imagine."
