Lao She’s satirical science fiction novel, Cat Planet, chronicles the surreal adventures of a plane crash survivor on Mars. In a twist of fate, he lands in Cat City, thrust into the role of an unwitting explorer. Within the confines of Cat City, he encounters a populace of cat-people sustaining themselves solely on Mi leaves, cat-soldiers eager to surrender, and houses devoid of conventional doors or windows. The city operates under a framework of absurd social norms and a legal system riddled with loopholes. The laws of Cat City exert no control over foreigners, and students at the local school unabashedly beat their teachers. As Lao She himself acknowledged, Cat Planet serves as a cautionary mirror, reflecting not only the most bizarre facets of civilization but also the author’s own somber worldview.
