Like many of our ancient myths, it answers a question: why is it forbidden to kill a cat in Ulthar? It is a slight tale, but nearly perfect. Lovecraft, who liked cats a lot, chose it one of his personal favorites.

I am a cat person too, and find the story's attitude toward cats—mysterious, dangerous creatures, worthy of respect and devotion—to be a sensible one. Like Lovecraft, I must admit this is one of my personal favorites too.

In the town of Ulthar, it is illegal to kill cats. Lovecraft relates the anecdote of why this law came to be and in doing so he demonstrates his exceptional ability to convey a sense of dark, ancient magic upon an innocent world. View all 9 comments.

Lovecraft tale, only ten paragraphs long, told in a portentous voice: It is said that in Ulthar, which lies beyond the river Skai, no man may kill a cat; and this I can verily believe as I gaze upon him who sitteth purring before the fire.

The Sphinx is his cousin, and he speaks her language; but he is more ancient than the Sphinx, and remembers that which she hath forgotten. It's a promising start, but I felt like it went downhill from there. There's a highly creepy old couple, doing Things come to a head in a gruesome, otherworldly kind of way, as so often happens with Lovecraft.

And that's all I'll say about that, since you can easily read this tidbit for yourself, except that it never pays to mess with cats, and those who do will inevitably come to a horrific and well-deserved end. I felt like this was a pretty thin tale, but my GR friends Althea Ann and Lyn really liked this one, so check out their reviews. View all 11 comments.

The Cats of Ulthar at first sounded to me by its premise to be some kind of inverted version of The Peid Piper of Hamelin , and to some extent it was similar, but the mystery it presents stood out to me as very intriguing and different. The story evokes a bizarre atmosphere, and even more bizarre residents of a town where the killing of cats has been made illegal.

His only companion is a kitten Creepy little story, but I was honestly happy with the outcome. You get what you give.

I haven't read a great deal of H. Lovecraft's stuff before, but I liked this one, especially how well it portrays the characters in such a short span of time. View 2 comments.

Once upon a time in Ulthar, before said law was put into action, there lived a sinister old couple who delighting in slaying any unlikely cat that straggled upon their property. This is a tale about two despicable, horrible, awful people who get exactly what is coming to them. I hated them but loved this creepy, atmospheric tale of revenge. View all 4 comments.

Lovecraft It is said that in Ulthar, which lies beyond the river Skai, no man may kill a cat; and this I can verily believe as I gaze upon him who sitteth purring before the fire. For the cat is cryptic, and close to strange things which men cannot see. The Sphinx is his cousin, and he speaks her language; but he is more ancient than the Sphinx, and remembers that which she hath forgotten. In Ulthar, before ever the burgesses forbade the killing of cats, there dwelt an old cotter and his wife who delighted to trap and slay the cats of their neighbours. Why they did this I know not; save that many hate the voice of the cat in the night, and take it ill that cats should run stealthily about yards and gardens at twilight.
