Mac's Backs Science Fiction Book Club discusses Catseye by Andre Norton

Exiled after his home planet was turned into a military outpost following an interstellar war, Troy Horan is relocated to the planet of Korwar. Under the watchful eye of the police state, he lives in the Dipple, a restricted area for subcitizens. He works as a day laborer in an interplanetary pet shop and has no idea why animals from Terra, a third-rate power, have been imported to Korwar--or why he has the ability to silently communicate with them, especially the kinkajou.

But a murder forces him to flee with his animal friends into the Wild, where mysterious, sealed ruins conceal Korwar's most fiercely guarded secret. With no one he can trust and an entire government under siege, Troy leads his extraordinary band of warriors in a final bid for freedom none of them may survive.

"A superb storyteller." -- The New York Times
