The cats are back, and it’s still not really a Christmas story.
Danielle rescues a cat from some mean men who are throwing rocks at it. After making sure it’s healthy she brings it home to join the family. Dark deeds abound, Danielle starts finding her neighbour’s dead pets in her house and shamefully buries them in the yard at night.
Is Meow getting out and killing the neighbour’s pets?
Impossible, he’s just a sweet, little kitty after all…
To ‘prepare’ myself for Sian B. Claven’s upcoming short story Merry Meow I decided to re-read the first in the series Killer Kitteh Khristmas, and prepare me it did! I enjoyed that one just as much the second time, but I will let my previous review stand for it as it is time to talk about Merry Meow:
Danielle does what every cat lover does: Saves and brings home a new furbaby! But what if you refuse to see things for how they actually are occurring or just in denial? This is what Merry Meow is about. It is a short story, so you can’t say much without giving spoilers, but this is story is not for the faint of heart: Claven writes horror and yes, you get some bloody horror in this story! And no, I did not see that ending coming…
I really enjoyed Merry Meow and look forward to the next in the series: Jingle Fur. I received an e-arc from the author to read and review and also pre-ordered Merry Meow for just .99 on Amazon! If you enjoy horror at all, spend the .99 and find a new-to-you author if you haven’t read anything from Claven before.
One day I will read more than her short stories, as I have several of her full-length novels on my kindle.
Merry Meow is recommended!
