Villainous cat, zombie mice...this story is really great! Don't miss the follow-up story Shreddy and the Zomb-dogs. Ms. Lowd, as usual, hits this short story out of the park.

It was cute and horrifying at the same time. Also looking forward to the Cat Havana sequal!

Rating: 4 - I Really Liked It

Shreddy, a disgruntled cat, discovers the ability to bring back mice from the dead with the help of a broken All-In-One machine. He devises an evil plan to use the mice to get at the yummy orchid his owner has cordoned off to protect it from Shreddy.

This was a quirky, fun, and quick read that any cat lover is bound to appreciate. I'm not sure I "got" the ending but I enjoyed the story nonetheless. I often find short stories to to be unsatisfying but this one did not disappoint. I'd love to read more of Shreddy's adventures and hopefully there will be some more to come in the future. And hey, it's free! Can't be that with dead mouse ;)
