Even Like Fire Cats Hate Reading, Sometimes

Fall semester is over, and we now return you to our regularly scheduled blog posts. But first, please take note that Like Fire resident kitty Francis is currently on the front page of Cats Hate Reading, a new Tumblr collection of cats who have… issues with the printed word: “Who knows why? Whether it’s jealousy or ignorance, they do.” He’s in good company, along with Twizzler who hates Infinite Jest, Jah who hates Learning XML, and Astoria, who has it in for apocalyptic fiction and World War Z in particular. Not to mention Pete, who disapproves of The Da Vinci Code, which you can’t blame on either jealousy OR ignorance.

If you have a cat with strong opinions on literature, the Cats Hate Reading folks invite you to submit proof of your own, noting the book in question and just what, exactly, your cat thinks is so wrong.

    Sparky LOVES to read but his handmaiden is exceptionally ill equipped with digital camera skills.

    Cannot figure out if my cats are literate or critical or what – they sure seek out magazines, papers and books – proof to come (maybe it has to do with the amount of book shelving in the house, which doubles as a cat gym) – so maybe ours don’t hate reading, they just like exercising….
