MASTERS OF MARS
by Al Sarrantonio


In a far distant future, a race of intelligent felines rules a Mars long ago
terraformed by humans from Earth. Now, Earth is just another planet circling
the sun, and—but for the few relics that prove they were ever
there—knowledge of the Old Ones has been lost. Yet war and intrigue and
courage still thrive….

Thanks Matthew!

I'm reading Anne McCaffery & Elizabeth Ann Scarborough's book
'Acorna's Rebels' in which felines have a high profile.

Although the author's name escapes me at the moment, there's
a whole series of "Ghatti" books - they involve a planet's
native species of large telepathic cats who bond with human
partners.

If you don't mind juvenile fiction, there's a whole
RedWall/WatershipDown-ish type series of cats. The author or the series name
escapes me. I haven't gotten into them yet but they're very prominent on the
juvenile sci-fi/fantasy shelf at our local bookstore. The cover is a solid
usually single cat, just the face not the entire body.
