you????

Quote:

The story appeared in an anthology of short stories along about
1974
or 1975 or so. It was from the Science Fiction Book Club which I
was
addicted to then! Actually they insisted on sending books each
month!

The story line was that the reader is lead to believe that a crew of
humans has crash landed on a planet that turns out to be inhabited
by
Giants. The twist is that the planet is earth, the giants are "us" and
the crew is made up of CATS!. The last lines of the story are
something
like a crew member asks the captain what they should do when
they are
confronted by the "Giants" and he responds "Roll over and Purr"
