What's with the name?
Allow us to explain.

Imagine, if you will, a world in which Elizabethan England was as obsessed with adding cats to things as modern Internet culture is, but naturally, having no Photoshop, had to do it by hand.
Wait, you don't have to, Susan Herbert already took care of that in the illustrations for her book Shakespeare Cats eight years ago, and thanks to Thaeger, they've been shared with the internet.
All I'm saying is that The Taming of the Shrew is an odd title once all the roles are being played by cats.
Yes, that's a cat under that donkey head.
I presume that the Lady Macbeth spends a lot of time licking her paws in this one.
Beyond this point I have no guidance to give you. Good luck.

I bought this book 2 years ago when I was in England!
I own this book and keep it in my purse at all times. You never know when you’ll need Shakespeare Cats. They always get the party going.
I have not read the Merry Wives of Windsor, but I love that picture of them. Probably the most cat-like out of the bunch!
I think #4 is a Manet. Or referring to …
I just need to leave this here… “Meowvolio”
Most adorable Romeo and Juliet ever.
It is, it’s Le déjeuner sur l’herbe. WITH CATS – maybe not a reference to Much Ado at all? Yes because apparently the same lady did a book, “A Cats Gallery of Art”:
Because teenagerdom is a mess, but some people handle it better than others.
