Contemptible salad-eaters! Taking pride in sneaking up on a leaf! Obviously fit only to be lunch, not even a speed bump in the Kzinti's imperial career.
Hardly worth screaming-and-leaping about. The humans, with their underhanded monkey cunning, turned communications equipment and space drives into weapons that cut the dauntless Heroes into ribbons.

The first war began in around C. He could see that Yankee was lost. Answering my companion's questions may taste like leaves but there will be no trickery in them. It is a tale that has generated much controversy among Niven fans, who argue whether it can be considered "canon" or not as it sems to contradict or rewrite many of the assumptions behind Known Space for example, it introduces the "Guardian" caste of Puppeteers, who seem to go against everything Niven wrote about the cowardly species. We were out there fighting. It displeased him that such creatures should have been given the true form. I have spoken with this man before.

Scream and leap to your nearest bookstore. Man-Kzin Wars XI. The Kzin were the mightiest warriors in the galaxy, which they were wasting no time in conquering, one star system at a time.
Then those feline lords of creation ran into those ridiculous weed-eating pacifistic apes who called themselves humans. And the catlike Kzin found they had their collective tail caught in a meat grinder. When the mighty Kzin moved in to take over the monkey-infested worlds, they got clobbered. The humans, with their underhanded monkey cunning, turned communications equipment and space drives into weapons that cut the dauntless Kzin heroes into ribbons. And then those underhanded humans gained a faster-than-light drive, and no amount of screaming and leaping could keep the Kzin from losing their first war in centuries of successful conquest.
But you can't keep a good warcat down, and the Kzin have by no means given up. New weapons, new strategies, and new leaders. Here they come again and those monkey-boys from Earth had better watch their backs. Howl Down the Galaxy! The plan: wipe out and enslave those weed-eating, monkey-spawn humans and march on toward galactic domination!
Easy, right Not quite. Now the smarter Kzin see the writing on the wall and form alliances of convenience with humans. But the battle rage on! A human secret agent with wiped memories must evade a Kzin assassin until he can rediscover his mission and save himself. And a Kzin horde is racing toward a huge anti-matter cache in deep space as one reluctant human protector stands against this ultimate threat!
A hard-hitting, spellbinding addition to the 'Man-Kzin Wars' shared universe created by multiple New York Times best-seller, incomparable tale-spinner, and Nebula- and five-time Hugo-Award-winner, Larry Niven! Larry Niven's bestselling Man-Kzin series continues!
The kzin, formerly invincible conquerors of all they encountered, had a hard time dealing with their ignominious defeat by the leaf-eating humans. Some secretly hatched schemes for a rematch, others concentrated on gathering power within the kzin hierarchy, and some shamefully cooperated with the contemptible humans, though often for hidden motives.
