Don't Eat Cat by Jess Walter

Eeee so basically this short story made me want to dive into a pile of zombie literature!

I thought it was a pretty compelling reasoning for zombies set up. It reminded me a little bit of the BBC drama, In the Flesh, because the zombies are aware and discriminated against and the allegory was heavy. But man for such a short story, the world felt fully realized...maybe a result of our inbuilt apocalyptic readiness. :)

Poor cats and dogs :( I think the idea of it all being caused by a party drug is really interesting. And of course, the fact that his girlfriend chose this is interesting and sad.

But my favorite part was when he was talking about how it's always the end of the world....the world is just a brutal awful place and we are often shocked by it and think the terrible things we see and experience must mean it's coming to an end, or because I'm dying the world must be dying, too. Great part!

Anyway, I don't have much else to say, but yeah I'd really never want zombies working food service ;)

Did anyone else read?
