Zombie Cat: Tale of a Decomposing Kitty
It’s not yet Halloween. But it’s getting frightfully close! We’ve been picking apples and visiting pumpkin patches, preparing costumes and planning visits to haunted houses. Horror movies are on the big screen, and fall is definitely in the air. And what would the season be without a creepy book to read as well? It might not be quite as mandatory as trick-or-treating, but a good scary story is a pretty important autumnal ingredient.
Zombie Cat: Tale of a Decomposing Kitty, is a new, darkly humorous adult illustrated book that takes on the zombie apocalypse and tells the tale of a domesticated cat who joins the legions of the undead. But the cat, named Tiddles, has an owner who isn’t (yet) a zombie… and has no particular desire to be. Written by Isabel Atherton and illustrated by Bethany Straker, this is a cute gift- though with a fairly particular audience.
Cat lovers probably won’t relish the idea of seeing their kittens in quite such a sad state. And folks without a certain degree of feline affection might not be drawn in. So you have to be a zombie-lover, first and foremost, and preferably one with a dark sense of humor and a pet you secretly, or not so secretly, hate. Gory, gruesome, and with an ending that left us a bit scared for humanity, it’s a quick read… if you have braaaaains. Available now, for under $10.
