The Zombie Emperor’s Domesticated Cat


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

What can a cat do in a apocalyptic world where zombies are rampant?

Fang He, who was reborn as a cat, held a small dried fish and seriously pondered over his cat life.

In the middle of the night, with his cat claws, he scratched a blood-red decree on the wall. He thought that his poop shoveling official would prepare for endless supplies and dried fish.

Who would have thought that his poop shoveling official would become a zombie on the first day?!

Fang He’s first reaction was to escape, ah ah ah ah ah~

Hmm? Don’t rub my tail, don’t scratch my ears, not even my chin!

Purrrr…Don’t forget my tummy!

This was cultivation zombie story.

Pretty much the whole story was just the two of them and I was suprised that I enjoyed the ride as much as I did because it was just like I don't even know what I was expecting.

Big warning that MC and ML start to develop feelings while MC hasn’t unlocked human shape yet, so if that bothers you, turn around!

... more>>

MC can still speak when they begin to catch feelings; there’s also a zombie cat X zombie couple at the end, but that one is kinda harder on the bestiality scale


Non-dramatic story, the plot is cohesive enough, MC is a cute cat and ML is a cute kuudere who spoils MC rotten. The zombies are nicely written and I like how the progress is all logical and rational within the worldbuilding and plot. Kinda fast if you ask me, specially the last dozen chapters, but satisfying enough.

5 stars simply because I entered this story with no expectations and was rewarded with compelling characters and story, plus the Li siblings are just too cool (you go Li Yi, you’re amazing darling! Wish you had more screen time though :”) <<less

... Animal Characteristics... it's a bit more than Animal Characteristics. With how much the ML obsessing bout the cat is like borderline beastiality but then again he's a zombie zo is that necro? Lol kidding, the situation will prob get better? Although sometimes the recovering zombie ML seems to have more brain than the human cat MC.

It's mostly fluff. The ML took in the kitten and care for it briefly and the cat choose to stay and take care of him in turn. There's a bit cultivation in it, a... more>> bit domestic life? But mostly probably a transformation journey of the two main characters.

Where I'm at in the story the others characters seems to be just...a bit more than passer by. Like put in there to break out from the materials gathering and travelling of two pers world of the MC and ML.

What I've read is MTL so I might be missing out something. It's a story pleasant enough read but I won't be jumping at the chance to read the proper translation any time soon. <<less

This is a fun, crack-y read. I refused to read it for a while because it was unfinished and I was worried that I would be left hanging lolol. Good thing I waited, since the ending is really rushed!!!


  • Fang He (MC) : Fang He was reborn in a world similar to his own. Except, in this world, he's a cat! He recovers his consciousness three days before the apocalypse and is picked up by the ML.
Minor Spoilers: ... more>>

The MC has a very child-like personality. In his previous life, he was only 13 years old when the apocalypse began, and not long after that, he was stuck in a laboratory and not given much of a chance to grow up mentally. After being reborn as a cat, the MC's main goal is to simply live better than before.


  • Li Zhen (ML) : He's a forensics science effort/biology researcher. His sister gave him a space artifact (though she only thought of it as a protection talisman) because she was afraid that his job would result in him cultivating a lot of evil spirits. This artifact is given to Fang He and, upon Li Zhen becoming a zombie, becomes their tool for survival.
Minor Spoilers:

He has a cold exterior but a warm interior. He's wanted a cat for a while, but they're all too scared of him. Maybe that's why, after picking up Fang He and becoming a zombie, he continues to dote on him.



To be honest, the setting of this world is a bit messy. The author introduces a lot of things but doesn't really spend time exploring them fully (and in the rare occasions where they did, it would end with some hand-wavey content). The basic setting is very similar to your average Zombie Apocalypse novel. There are humans and zombies with superpowers and there's zombie nuclei to evolve said powers.


This one has a little bit of extra pomp with fallen meteorites being the source of the virus. There's also the cultivation elements that allow the kitty to transform. But, both of the latter things are not really explained.



The novel at least stays true to the premise! This really is a journey about a cat and a zombie emperor. The kitty MC spends most of the first half of the novel trying to cure the zombie ML. This strong plot direction makes the first half of the story really interesting, but the further you go, the less interesting it becomes since the newly introduced elements and characters aren't really given any chance to flourish (the ending is really really really rushed).


I recommend it if you're looking for something fun and silly to read. It does have its dark moments, but it's mostly self-indulgent -- playing with the familiar tropes of novels of this type. It took itself seriously in the first half but gradually loses stability in the latter half. Still, the first part is worth reading! Even if it is a bit weird because the MC is a kitty for a majority of the story. And not just any kitty, but a kitty with a fairly young mind, no matter how old he was when he was reborn. <<less

I mean, its Okay. Nothing great but its not too bad either. It did make me want to drop it a few times but I just kept reading cuz the translation was good. The story itself is pretty cliche, the romance is cliche and everything in this cliche. There are no surprises, everything goes like you expect it to go. Of course, this is a romance novel and there are some fluffy parts but its not something great that I will come back later to reread.

In a sentence, Its a... more>> completely forgettable novel that you won't even remember you have read unless you see that its bookmarked by you. <<less

It's not exactly deserving of 5 stars but I really liked it! (Well it hit all my buttons but that is questionable for others..... zombies, cats, super powers, leveling up, cultivation)

Also big kudos to the writer that was able to have a not-yet-lucid zombie and a not-yet-beeing-able-to-speak kitten having more communication and understanding going on than 70% of the couples in other novels.

MC has a bad past. When he was 8 years old the apocalypse came and soon after he was sold to the laboratory, where he... more>> was tortured for the next 13 (11?) years. When he finally escaped with others, they were hunted down and he sacrificed himself.... only to wake up as a kitten? A small kitten, freezing in the rain... reborn to die so soon again? Just as he was despairing someone picked him up and took him home. ML is a rather ice cold personality on the outside but he really, really wants to have a pet to cuddle. Unfortunately all kinds of animals are afraid of him, his cold demeanor and maybe the blood on his hands... then there is this bright little kitten...

So the Description makes it look like a cute zombie story with a cat (and it is) but it's so much more. It takes some chapters until the apocalypse starts and MC and ML already formed a bond at that time. So when MC realized that ML is going to change into a zombie, it's just heart breaking! (Tissues, you need lots of tissues!)

From the start ML was a bit special and MC (still a 2 month old kitten) is doing his best to hinder ML as to not bite people. Imagine this for a second... all powerful zombie gets derailed by an angry puffed fluffball.

It's a journey of getting lucid, having setbacks and rescuing people.

I feel like this novel indeed has a massage, that even as a non human you can be more human than humans themselves. (Maybe I just had my random 5 minutes of pseudo philosophical enlightenment here).

The story itself is not on the "world saving " level or building the best base. It is more dedicated to becoming "human ish" and destroy this laboratory. There are indeed lots of parts that could have been better, written more detailed and strings that were left dangling could get a better resolution... but it didn't interfere with the joy I had reading this novel.

The world building was ok and I did like the characters. Even the side character were fun.

In another review someone wrote that MC was controlling, abusive and so on. I veto that! I feel like you guys are measuring a not lucid zombie, that can hardly keep itself together, with the standards of a noble gentleman hero?

Yes, MC is highly protective (emphasis on protective) but he also knows that his kitten loves freedom and supports him as much as possible to have that freedom... like giving a protective shield to let him roam freely between the zombies (insted of restricting him), or changing his own plans to accommodate MC instead of leaving him behind in a secure place. I really like their interaction and feel like the communication is in place.

I recommend reading this story at least once. It made me laugh and it made me cry. I was highly entertained and give this 5 stars even if the writing itself might be a 3.5.

Also I want to say about that bestiality tag, whoever entered this, you might check the meaning of this word again.

There is NO interc**rse WITH ANIMALS. The closest to this is when ML kissed cat MC which instantly changed to human when their lips touched. About the feelings growing while MC is still a cat... he is a damn speaking cat that is/ was a human and he is in and out of cat/human body, ever changing until it stabilized. If this is a reason for you to freak out or make you uncomfortable, feel free to skip this novel. <<less

There's no bestiality in this novel for me since the MC and ML did it when they are in human characteristics. Also, when they kiss on lips the MC immediately became a human, except when the MC as a cat kissed the ML. For downside, it is the ending; it is a little rushed. Everything ended (story climax til the end of main story) in just 2 chapters. What I like about this novel is the fluffness and the love development 💕 The ML only adored MC at first, like... more>> a fondness when u have a pet. Since the MC could later talk, the ML started to treat him like a human. The MC also accompanied ML through the tough times and fell in love with him eventhough the MC is still a cat. Fortunately due to the cultivation method, the MC can transform in human form.

Rating 4.4 <<less

I was expecting a gritty story about a zombie and his cat in the apocalypse, but instead it's a supernatural/scifi (?) story about a magical peach core bell saving a mutant zombie and his cat master.

I'm reading CG's TL, which is really good and easily understandable, but also means it'll be a while until I can come back and make a 'Completed' review.

It's a good read, but the ending is rushed & messy. MC is super cute, ML is fun to read too, with his "my cat is my everything" even before he regains human consciousness. Good read for people who like cats. Wish the ending wasn't so Bleh though. It's HE but abrupt & not that satisfying. But good read overall.

The translator did a wonderful job with this story.

I really enjoyed this. There are some funny bits and some cute bits.

The spice level is very low. It's the kiss and then waking up sore type of romance.

... more>> You have a man turned zombie and a man turned cat rallying in love and later you have a kitten with a pet zombie that gets a bonus chapter at the end that is adorable.

This is a HE story and luckily, the author actually gave an end that was for the most part, satisfying. Would have loved a few more bonus chapters, but this author is know for either a rushed or a incomplete ending. So am just happy with a decent end.

The bestiality tag isn't for show. Cat and zombie feelings start before human transformation occurs. Nothing really physical, but the feelings do develop. So if that is going to weird you out, this might not be the story for you.

I enjoyed this story enough that I would read it again. <<less

Generally, the novel is okay. However, there are some issues I feel conflicted about. One being how the ML saw the MC as a love interest so early on, even before the latter was able to transform. Excuse me, but the image of a human/zombie kissing a cat on the mouth with tongue is kinda disturbing for me even if the cat transforms into a human mid kiss.

Another issue is the inconsistencies of how much time the MC spent in the laboratory in his last life. Is it ten years... more>> or thirteen? Maybe it's a translation issue. Who knows?

Then there is the fact that the ending feels rushed. While I was approaching the final chapter I kept asking myself how the author was going to wrap up the plot seeing as I still had yet to reach the climax three chapters away from the final chapter (extras excluded). In the end the author packed everything in the last two chapters and distracted the reader with the extras focused on the zombie side pairing. Needless to say that I felt dissatisfied.

Still, these issues aside, the novel was still an okay read to pass time with. <<less

I didn't read the summary with clear mind and then forgot it until finally I chose to read this novel. I thought the story was started at the middle of Apocalypse. I didn't expect it start at the few days before apocalypse and then we actually see their Journey to became Powerful!!!

This is truly Different from many other Zombie novel. Like the fact ML wasn't infected by Zombie virus from being bitten. We actually see him being Emotional but only worried for MC's well being. And MC from the start... more>> won't let ML bite anyone or eat any Raw food.

The progress of ML getting his human conscious back wasn't slow nor fast. It was Enjoyable step by step development. Love how his heart know that his cat is so Important for him even when he wasn't conscious.

MC as Cat was almost 99% part in the novel so far I have read. It's okay, he does become Human and still can and will go back as Cat. But this is the best part in novel. Really love how our MC in Adorable Kitten Form being Cute badass and attacking Zombies and sometimes attack the bad people.

This novel has new level of Harbouring things....

They raid multiple plants in farms...

And Bruh, they took a little Mountain... XD lol


Anyway, it has lot of Fluff and Amazing Actions. Absolutely Wonderful Unique Novel !!! Truly Loving it!!!

Pray so hard the rest of the story is as Satisfying!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Finished reading at 1 APRIL 2022


The 2nd Novel I have ever read that actually solved the Zombie Virus/Make Zombie Vaccine (QT Novel Excluded) !!!


Anyway, I'm pretty Satisfied with the end! Things between ML and MC is Always so good!

The side characters/people who worship them shown to be actual good people who doesn't have bad thought toward them. They actually really look up to them and would help them as best as they can!!!

And even the Side CP actually become a CP and get their Happily Ever After~

I'm Truly Loving this Novel with my Eternal Love for the Eternity and Beyond!!!! <<less

I really enjoyed reading about this zombie and kitten pair, trying to survive in the apocalypse and increase their powers but also get revenge for kitten's past life. There are quite a few illogical and incoherent little things for e.g how did kitten cook fish stew that first time. The little incoherences did not annoy me that much. This is my third novel by this author, and this is one of her older works and is obviously flawed when compared to the following ones. "Number one merchant of the beast... more>> world" is still my favourite from this author, which I highly recommend if you like this kind of fluff. All her works have protags who are cute animals. <<less

I dropped this novel at chapter 61, even my love for cats and my original excitement for the novel didn't manage to get me through more than that, no matter how hard I tried to push onward. At this point, I honestly don't even care about the ending, I can pretty much guess it anyways.

If you like semi-plotless cultivation type novels, where the main characters are ridiculously OP and where the author keeps on talking and talking about their skills and levels and defeating enemies of various skills and levels,... more>> with a side of heroic face-slapping of brainless cannon-fodder villains, you will be very happy with this novel. However, if you are expecting a proper plot and good, engaging writing, don't waste your time.

The first few chapters before the start of the apocalypse looked very good, definitely made me very excited for the novel. But then it went downhill quickly. If I can give just one advice to writers: don't give your main characters an absolutely OP golden finger, it removes much of the suspense from the story - no matter what obstacle they encounter, they will just breeze through it, which is very boring to read. This author even thought one golden finger is not enough and equipped the main pair with at least three (technically four, if we count MC's rebirth). I'm afraid at this point this story could be called 'One hundred ways to effortles living with your golden finger' and also 'Apocalypse: the guide to the types of zombies and mutants and how to kill them effortlessly'. Almost every paragraph their supernatural abilities are mentioned in some way. The zombie apocalypse setting itself is very cliché - including zombie nuclei, different levels of zombies, mutant humans etc. Nothing original anywhere.

There are some obvious plotholes and contradictions. More detail in the spoiler.


At the beginning, I found myself very frustrated with the author sometimes forgetting the MC is a tiny kitten and the backstory they gave him. I was having real trouble imagining a two-month kitten setting up a solar generator and stewing a fish (without abilities, as it was only later mentioned the MC suddenly realized he could use those for these tasks). Also, the author originally said the MC was only 8 when the apocalypse started in his first life and he spent 13 years in a lab as a test subject. That would make it pretty hard for him to have any practical skills (like stewing a fish, using a map, anything really). A bit later, the author suddenly realizes this plothole and out of nowhere starts claiming MC escaped after almost ten years and spent the last three years free. The MC still at some points has knowledge about the beginning of the apocalypse that he has no business knowing.


I also quite disliked the way the author used science. In some ways, it seems this world is a sci-fi (ML, a forensic doctor, for some reason has super equipment laying around that can do things absolutely impossible in our world - the way it analyzes samples is ridiculously OP), in all other ways the world seems to be the same as ours in technology. Oh, and let's not forget the way the author described the experiments done on the MC - which I found completely unreasonable, their purpose pretty much just to give the MC a tragic backstory and science a bad name. Especially considering the OP equipment that apparently even forensic doctors can afford to have at home for fun!

Halfway through the novel, at 45 chapters, I thought back on the plot and realized I could sum up everything important in three sentences max. That's how weak the plot is. Most of the writing is drivel, you can fly through a chapter and skip paragraphs without losing anything significant.

Romance was also very weak and somewhat awkward on top of that. The author should have thought more on when and how to start the attraction between the main characters. <<less

A really good story! But I hate how rush the ending is. I hoped the author elaborated more the happenings after they destroy the lab, it's just too sudden and feels so underwhelming which made me rate it with only 4 star.

The author didn't pay much attention to details but the world building is enough to enjoy the story. Just don't mind the pseudo bestiality because nothing even happen besides the simple kiss lol.

This is definitely a nice read, though, not was I've expected at all.

We have a slow paces store in the apocalypse here. The world is not much detailed but it's enough. The characters are normal, can't say I've found something memorable here. I'm not event sure that there is a decent characters development here, I hopes for more.

In a way, this story is disappointing for me, because I've expected much more different story in the beginning. Still, it was a good novel, just not so much to my taste.

It is... more>> slow paces, with some mediocre adventure, drama and funny moment. It's move like mediocre slice of life but with zombie and in the apocalypse. In short, nothing too good, but nothing too bad either. I'm definitely disappointed in how the story when with the role of ML as Zombie emperor. And the ending and main conflict were at all not memorable. It was a little boring and too hasty. The cats are my love, but MC was not that my liking because of his character too.

I really don't know how to rate this novel, as it is a good read, but still so much mediocre in all ways. It's like, 4 is too much, but 3 is too low. <<less

no offense, but this is such a waste of an interesting plot. 😣 This novel has so much potential. The author is also not bad at picking up a cliche plot and adding some originality to it.

Although it is by no means my favourite apocalyptic novel, its straightforwardness and simple plotline is enjoyable to read. There are many things worth looking forward to, including the revenge and zombie virus experiments. However, I don't know whether the author intentionally thrown the story, but the hasty development of the core storyline, the... more>> skip of the supposedly interesting development processes, in addition to the incessantly increasing of the romance kinda ruined the fun for me.

well, I'm not against the romance. I also enjoy the companionship between the two protagonists, I just wish the romance wouldn't be so heavily included and the author could focus more on the main plot and pay attention to the story and relationship build up instead. Honestly, It's really strange for human (zombie) to develop such romantic feelings towards a cat. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem reading bestiality smut before this but the interaction between Fang He and Li Zhen is really awkward. 😭 there are too many unnecessary jealousy (It's so s*upid for the ML to even get jealous with a new born kitten), and the EQ of ML is strangely low after the apocalypse. I don't remember he's this annoying in the beginning. Besides, his intention of keeping MC from others solely because of his jealousy is simply too ridiculous, I despise this type of lover the most. <<less
