Few true humans remain on the future Earth, where caimen, shrugleggers, and felinas dominate. The people are descendents of crocodiles, alien races, and jaguars, and they are much different than the humans--they are products of genetic experiments created to perform specific functions. Some work in the swampy lands, others are the strong burden-bearers, but none are as beautiful as the felines-not even the humans. And no one is worthy enough to win over the most attractive felina, Karina. She is a rare beauty of great prowess, with a tempting sculpted physique that could lure anyone to her
Friends come in boxes by Michael Coney ( Book )
7 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The problem of immortality was solved in the 21st century; it was a matter of successful brain transference. When you reached forty, your brain was removed and transferred into the head of a six-month-old infant. In that way you could get another forty years of life, then do it all over again. All you had to do was obey the laws and make no trouble. It also solved the population problem, for who would want to have a baby that would soon become a total adult stranger mentally? So there was a growing waiting period between transfers, and in the interim the disembodied brains were conscious in special boxes known as (chuckle) friendship boxes

They named the planet after the pretty wife of the corporation's boss. The planet itself seemed not so pretty ... the first impression of the indentured worker-colonists was that it was dull.

These changelings had a weird but effective defense technique -- they changed shapes until they had the form of the most desirable object of any potential predator they encountered
