The Meow Library Presents: Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment (For Your Cat)




A foundational and enduringly resonant work of Existentialist thought, Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment tells the story of Raskolnikov, a brilliant yet tortured student who takes a decisive step outside the bounds of law and morality to assert himself and attain his ends, something your cat is inclined to do on a daily basis.


This lucid reimagining of Dostoevsky's classic novel brings Raskolnikov’s journey into the agonizing depths of conscience to a new species of reader - namely, the common housecat. It is our hope that Raskolnikov’s ineluctable plunge into madness and self-renunciation will serve as a lesson to your feline companion the next time they contemplate tormenting a canary or unleashing a self-righteous jet of urine upon a cherished heirloom rug.
