Published Date: 1843

A tale of animal cruelty and animal revenge. If only every animal abused could have their karmic justice.

When it comes to humans versus animals, I will be in the animals corner.

  1. Little brat indeed. We had a cat who hated all the world but loved his family to such extent that being very ill he was still hanging around to see the last baby arrive. Never had bitten a child even if they handled him rough sometimes because of their young age – they loved him dearly and took care of him as they grew older. Pity the youngest doesn’t know him.
    Have never heard of the book!

  2. Bahaha! Love that cat gif.
    Wow, I really need to re-read this one some time. It’s been ages. I haven’t read this since middle school in English Class. (Suddenly feeling ancient!) 😛

    1. It was at least high school or just thereafter for me! My new coworkers where talking about how they graduated in 2014-2015 and I told them they were making me feel rather old lol. They tried to convince me that I wasn’t but I’m not buying it. 😛

      1. lol I feel ya, it doesn’t feel like it’s been THAT long since high school for us, but it really has somehow. We’re becoming old biddies! Haha 😛

  3. I was going to add this, then I realized it’s a Poe story so I already have it in the mix. I’m all about animal abusers getting what they deserve. That woman who shot her husband for hurting her cat is my goddamn hero.
