Lord of the Fleas: Classic Book Covers Updated with Cats


Literature, like the Internet, is full of cats. And of course, it’s well known that many literary types are also feline fans (hence one of our favorite Tumblrs, Writers and Kitties), but what if even more novels were written with our furry friends at the forefront? This morning, GalleyCat pointed us towards an article over at AbeBooks, where the editors have imagined the plots of classic books if they had been written about cats, and best of all, delivered kitty-ized covers to go with them. After all, just think of how much The Catcher in the Rye would be improved were it The Cat Hair in My Eye. Click through to see ten of our favorites, and then be sure to check out the rest over at AbeBooks.
