I Reincarnated As A Villainess, But Why Did I Become A Cat Butler Instead?


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

I reincarnated as Rowaine, the villainess who was fated to be executed for the sin of mistreating a shapeshifter. To escape death, I decided to replace my sister, Renee, in her arranged marriage.

The problem was that the person I was to be wed to, the notoriously cold-blooded Duke Blois, was a cat person.

“Darling, I heard that abusing shapeshifters like me is a hobby of yours.”
“From what I understand, there was no such condition that a woman who mistreats shapeshifters could never be the Duke’s marriage partner.”

His emerald eyes flashed dangerously. I quickly added before he could say anything else.

“If my hobby will pose a problem, then I promise that I will never play with the Duke.”


This is the story of a 10-year contract marriage between a cat butler and a feisty cat shapeshifter.

So far so good 😍

I like the FL cleverness and the way she interacts with other characters.

Author has a great knowledge of animals, cats especially. The way ML is portreyed is a pice of art. Purrfect balance between human and cat behaviour 😻

The relationship between FL & ML is also very natural and well paced.

Highly recommended for cat lovers who are looking for well written story.

Do you like cats? Then you'll like this. No other criteria needed. 😂 Translation is pretty good but there are occasional spelling and grammar errors. Probably a proof reader is needed. Otherwise very readable.

10/10 recommend for all the cat and fantasy lovers out there!

I quite like this!

The male lead is very cute, he's a bit of a tsundere lol. I think the author integrates his cat-ness together with his human side very well. He really seems like a cat, but he doesn't feel less than human or s*upid because of it.

The MC is competent and I like her but her personality feels a bit bland. Though she does go and act wild once she's pushed to that point. There's this thing where she smells really good to cats that hasn't been explained yet... more>> (maybe she carries catnip around lol)

I have a theory that it's a blessing from the cats she took care of in her previous world, to make the cats in this world fond of her.

and I hate it when authors do this kind of 'MC is especially attractive to the ML because of some sort of power' thing, but that's a pet peeve and the only thing I dislike about this novel so far.

Their relationship is good so far, nothing toxic and no red flags. I'm looking forward to how it develops in the future because I think they'll be really cute together!

In this world shapeshifters are seen as below humans and are commonly kept as s*aves. I appreciate how the MC as a modern person keeps her modern sensibilities and treats everyone with respect, (so far) unlike other knovels with this type of setting where the MC usually starts buying s*aves and using them for her benefit.

The translation is good, (maybe in need of a proofreader, some phrases are awkward) and I really appreciate the work they've been doing. Thank you!

Looking forward to where this goes, it seems like a solid story. Especially if you like cats. <<less

So I read a really interesting story before this so that may be causing my bias, but the plot pretty much feels like it’s being made up on the spot and like nothing is connected to anything else. The pacing is also very weird. This grown woman had a kitten die years ago and now she’s crying in the woods looking for it’s body. Then she has healing magic and a wound on the ML show up in the same paragraphs. She then starts circulating her magic when alone, which... more>> I don’t think she should even know how to do. My point is that I’ve had dreams with better plotlines than this. <<less

Imma be honest, I was putting off this novel for such a long time just because of the weird novel and then just randomly decided to give it a try and oh boi the regret.......I should have started this much earlier! Like goodness its so good! Both the lead share a amazing chemistry and I love their interactions very much. If you love cats this novel is definitely for you.

The FL is a very funny character LMAO I absolutely loved how she ... more>>

sat at the Previous Duchess's LAP as an act for revenge and to make her embarrassed LOL


The Duke, being a shape shifter of course shows the characteristics of a cat and I absolutely love it!

For a joyful read I 100% recommend this novel considering how amazing it is. <<less
