Lenni Reviews: Zombie Cat: The Tale of a Decomposing Kitty

With the recent success of “Go The F*ck To Sleep” I did expect a bunch more ‘kids books for adults’ to come out. For good or ill, there’s a market for these and since they amuse the hell out of me, I am proud to present a review of Zombie Cat by Isabel Atherton and Bethany Straker.

    One day, Tiddles is just chilling with his kitty friends when a nuclear power plant spill infects some field mice. One bites Tiddles and he awakens as Zombie Cat! It’s a cute story with decent art. The rendering of a decaying zombie cat was detailed enough to turn my stomach yet some gore is skipped. The scene where a pack of zombie cats attack a little girl is thankfully obscured. Still, this is not for the super squeemish or the very young. Unless you want to explain to your young child why Tiddles wants to eat his owner.

    I would recommend this book to older kids (say 15+ or a 12 year old with a decent sense of humor) who are into zombies or to adults like me who like a little gore with their cute every so often. If you like zombies, kitties, and silly, gory comics, you’ll enjoy this quick little tome.
