The next event in the CRONC SF subgroup: The Door into Summer by Robert Heinlein was serialized in Late 1956 and was published in hardcover in 1957.
The novel is fast-paced hard science fiction, with Time Travel, a (creepy?) romantic element and of course a cat. Dan Davis was tricked by an unscrupulous business partner and a greedy fiancee into spending thirty years in suspended animation just when he was on the verge of a success beyond his wildest dreams. But when he awoke in the future, he discovered he had the means to travel back in time -- and get his revenge!
