1/9/1992 Cat goes to mountain, moves it
January 9, 1992. This date saw the publication of The Cat Who Moved A Mountain, Lilian Jackson Braun's thirteenth novel about Jim Qwilleran and his cats. Kirkus Reviews said it was "a shade cuter" than most of the series, but "devoted fans will lap it up anyway."
