I read a book when I was young, it was about space alien cats. I believe the title was Quzzles, but I really don't know. The book was stolen from me before I was finished. I don't know much else about it.

    There is nothing here to really go off of. We're going to need much more detail to figure out what you're looking for. Ex - When did you read it? How old did it look then? What did the cover art look like? Any other plot details besides "alien cats". Was it a small or large book? Apr 5, 2018 at 17:55

    Maybe Quozl by Alan Dean Foster?

    But the Quozl are bunny rabbits, not cats.

    @User14111 That's as good an answer as any right now. The name is similar enough, and cats ~= rabbits. Apr 5, 2018 at 18:38

    In addition to Quozl (1989), Alan Dean Foster also wrote Cat-A-Lyst (1991), a novel featuring sapient cats.

    It appears that you have found your answer. At the moment this is just a thank you to the commenters who have suggested the answer to you. However, you can convert this into an actual answer and add a brief description of how it matches what you remembered of the book.

    Or let the person who suggested it post the answer and get the rep they deserve, but maybe that's only me Apr 6, 2018 at 18:03
  • I wanted to close it as a dplicate of this old question but then I realized that the answer to the old question was never accepted.

  • I don't need to post an answer for Cat-A-Lyst now, but I wonder if the OP perhaps thought the cats from that book were in Quozl. The OP might have read both books — same author, published at about the same time, with similarly whimsical plots.

  • Don't forget, the young of both cats and rabbits are called kittens
