"Eelie is a most unusual dog who arrives uninvited at the home of Arjan Singh, when she is a few months old and stays for the rest of her life to become his inseparable companion. Along the way, she befriends and forms a special association with the three leopards which Arjan Singh rears at his home; the leopard cub, prince, and the twin sisters Harriet and Juliette. Later arrives the zoo-born tigress Tara, who returns to the jungle to produce her cubs by a wild tiger.

"The author writes with a sympathy for all animals and a regard for conservation in this unique story of Eelie with the ‘Big Cats’. Eelie forms a rare bridge between the world of humans and that of wild creatures, linking the two in a way never seen before or since. This book will appeal to wildlife enthusiasts and animal lovers, as well as general readers interested in the great felines."
