Short story or Novella from a pulp magazine in the 80's written from a cat's point of view, involved crossing a dead expanse (a parking lot) and a fear of castration by a human (My human would NEVER do that to me). Long shot, I know. Astounding SF or Asimov's maybe?

    Maybe something by Fritz Leiber? His Gummitch the Cat stories appeared as late as 1983 in F&SF. Mar 24, 2016 at 19:23
  • Who are "they" that are crossing the parking lot with the cat? The cat's human owners, or a pack of cats?

  • Could this story/novella eventually have been incorporated into Tailchaser's Song by Tad Williams?
