"People keep walking in and out of this room and looking uncomfortable.
I have yet to be fed, and the mice are not of good bouquet this afternoon; I shall remain by the fireplace.
Other people are moving around in my room, purring and making odd sounds.
If I wasn't so busy licking this paw I might wonder about a "ball" and why they care so much.
There are now fewer young ladies around to pamper me."

It is a truth universally acknowledged that I, the cat, am the master of all I survey. The entire world, and everything within it, exist merely to provide me things with which to play.

So it's a lot of laying around and puking?

I just saw that book at Chapters while spending a gift card.

No doubt there will soon be a whole meme industry at work writing books with added kitties or possibly puppies. Zombies may be getting over ripe. It's been a very long time (I blame Obama or more properly the Great Recession--people are depressed and feeling like the living dead because of their own personal recessions).

We should brainstorm this idea. Or find books that already have kitties and puppies that could tell the story from their point of view.

Are kitties a leading economic indicator of recovery? Let us hope.

One book which I have read that has a cat in it is Not Wanted on the Voyage by Timothy Findley, gay Canadian author. The story of this novel is based on the Biblical myth of Noah's Ark.

His writing is darkly humourous and satiric. His Mother suffered from depression and insanity, so there is a tragic side to several of his books, but this one is a fantasy with a lot of black humour. Noah's cat is pregnant. One of his son was captured by cannibals and remains dyed blue (presumably this is Japeth, the ancestor of the dark races). The Devil is a seven foot copper-skinned trannie in a kimono who clings to the outside of the Ark (as the Devil did in medieval tellings of the story).

Or how about the kitty in the grow op trailer? Bubble eyes there, from Trailer Park Boys, says a marijuana trailer is no place for a kitty. What does the kitty think?

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies... now a major motion picture!

Meh, it was already done, and likely better, with zombies.
