Title: The Yellow Cat Title Record # 1207446
Author: Wilbur Daniel Steele
Date: 1915-03-00
Type: SHORTFICTION
Length: short story
Language: English
Note: All apparently-supernatural events in this story have a mundane explanation, but it nonetheless appears in anthologies of ghost stories because of the mystifying atmosphere it builds up before the truth is revealed. Originally appeared in the March 1915 issue of Harper's Monthly and later reprinted in Steele's first collection of short stories Land's End and Other Stories in 1918.
Synopsis: The captain is sure he is alone on his ship, where mysterious things keep happening—alone, that is, except for a yellow cat who seems more and more sinister.
