Everything is better with cats

Oh, excellent! AbeBooks identifies a pressing problem, and a solution:

Here at AbeBooks Headquarters, we occasionally step away from our bubbling beakers to read books. And we’ve all noticed a disturbing trend throughout classic literature.

Many of the so-called “classics” are entirely devoid of cats. I know.

Cats and books go together like bees and honey. So we took it upon ourselves to properly “Catify” some of the classics. We bring you, the joy of Kitty Lit. Cats on classic covers!

A couple of gems:

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Meow

Oscar is a sweet but disastrously overweight domestic shorthair who – from the home he shares with his mother and sister – dreams of becoming the Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien and, most of all, finding love. But Oscar lacks opposable thumbs, and can’t be a writer, because he is a cat.


The Cat Hair in My Eye

Holden Catfield is a whiny, disillusioned youth barely out of kittenhood. As he roams New York City, he becomes increasingly despairing of the state of the world, and lacks faith and hope in the goodness of society. With any luck, neutering him will make him less moody. Or maybe a nice ball of string.

The rest here.

  1. Maybe if I grew up with some of those books I wouldn’t be so nervous around cats today.
