Pride and Prejudice and Kitties: A Cat-Lover's Romp Through Jane Austen's Classic
Pride and Prejudice and Kitties: A Cat-Lover's Romp Through Jane Austen's Classic | Jane Austen, Pamela Jane, Deborah Guyol
26 posts | 5 read | 20 to read
A hilarious mash-up of cats and Austen. What if Jane Austen s "Pride and Prejudice" was told from a cat s point of view? On the heels of smash hits like "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and "I Can Has Cheezburger," this hilarious mash-up by children s author Pamela Jane and photographer Deborah Guyol spins a fresh, quirky take on two of the things we just can t get enough of: classic cats and classic Jane. "Pride and Prejudice and Kitties" juxtaposes wacky photos of cats with the wicked humor of Jane Austen. Soulful Mr. Darcy gazes at Elizabeth Bennet in fascination; hysterical Mrs. Bennet yowls that no one understands her; somnolent Mr. Hurst passes out on the sofa after dinner; arrogant Lady Catherine hisses at Elizabeth. Each photo includes a hilarious caption that goes along with the text of "Pride and Prejudice," told from a feline perspective. "Pride and Prejudice and Kitties" is a book for cat-lovers, Austen-lovers, and people who love to laughin other words, just about everyone."

Thank you so much @mabell for my amazing #FeedAReader package! 🤗 I looove the Slytherin spatula and Harry Potter cookie cutters and will definitely be putting them to good use! The books look awesome and I can‘t wait to try these yummy recipes, they sound great. (P.S. I love your handwriting!) Thank you for everything! 🤗


Carolyn11215 Love Georgette Hayer. I have to dip back into her books!!! 11mo
mabell Yay! I‘m so glad you like everything! No Wind of Blame is great; I hope you enjoy it! (And thank you for the compliment on my handwriting! 😊) 11mo

I wanted to name these two Mister Darcy and Miss Bennett, but the hubs wanted to keep the names the Humane Society gave them, Oscar and Darla. Yuck right?! 😂 Since they are his cats, I acquiesced. #namesakes #austeninaugust @Crinoline_Laphroaig

Snapped this picture of a sign at Jane Austen House Museum. I would totally have a cat named Jane Pawsten. She would be deceptively sweet looking with a mischievous side. Alas my Mr. Darcy is not a fan of cats. 😼 #namesakes #janepawsten #austeninaugust

julesG That name! 1y
HOTPock3tt Lol! ❤️Where was the museum? 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @HOTPock3tt Chawton Cottage in England. It's where Jane lived, wrote and sent her novels out into the world to be published. Beautiful village. Just down the lane is where her wealthy brother lived at what is now called Chawton House Library. It's dedicated to research and preserving women writers. 1y

#FunFridayPhoto On the list of things that make me happy is my Max, 12 1/2, often grumpy, diabetic-so he costs a small fortune to keep in insulin, needles & special food, & very vocal about EVERYTHING... This week has been hard, full of tearful, anxious nights especially & so he's been sticking closer than usual. Last night I woke up from a bad dream to find him curled up next to me with his sweet face, just waiting for a snuggle. 🐱❤️#catsoflitsy

Bookzombie Sweet kitty! 💕🐱 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I have been having really bad dreams too. Need to get myself a snuggle bug! 3y

Lucylovesreading Aww I have a cat who is around that age and he's still as spry as when he was a kitten. He's constantly hunting outside bringing all sorts of pray from small to large. But he's the sweetest cuddler, he sleeps on my brother when he wants to cuddle 😊 3y
