Zombies VS. Kitties

You've probably seen those new books where zombies are interwoven into classic literature. The most popular being Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I have not read it. I know you must wonder why haven't I?

Well it is true that I have a love for all things zombie; horror movies, killing zombies in violent video games, reading pulpy zombie literature etc, etc. Then why haven't I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? It's not because of those darling zombies it's because I can't stand that hack Jane Austin. Even zombies couldn't persuade me to give her another shot. So I've resigned myself to the fact that those books are simply out of my range.

Except yesterday I was at the library and I spied it on the shelf. The Meowmorphosis. Oh my dawg!!! it's a twist on Kafka's The Metamorphosis. Remember that dear book where the dude wakes up one morning and has turned into a cockroach? I adore that story. Only this time the dude wakes up and has turned into a sweet little kittie. The family, much like myself, is equally as revolted by the dude being a little kittie as by a slithering cockroach. I mean really don't you just want to slam some of those LOL cats upside their heads? eeekkk

Anyway since it's not drippy Jane Austin but cool Franz , father of the magic mushroom, Kafka I can read it.

I am still left with the question which is more terrifying; zombies or adorable little kitties?

I'm afraid I've never read unintelligible literature - I thought that Kafka was a film director, or possibly a Star Trek villan, or both. So this post-post-post-modernist-zombie stuff is a little out of my league.

However, the answer to your question is obvious - Kitties are definitely more terrifying. Unlike zombies, they have functional brains - usually a bad sign.

Loved The Metamorphosis. I think I'd choose a kitty over a zombie cause a zombie would eat you out of your house or in your home. Which reminds me. I need to pick up cat food tomorrow before I get clawed to death. Cats get cranky when they're hungry.

Just think how warm you would be in the winter with that built-in fur coat.

I can't imagine a world without LOL cats. :)

You remember Fun with Dick and Jane, right? the kidlet books. The library had one in the kids section called, "Did and Jane meet the Vampire."

"Look, Jane, look! He wants to suck my blood!"
