Product Description

Reading an article about cats who live in bookstores inspired author Brandon Schultz to further investigate the lives of bookstore cats. Cats have strong personalities that enchant and engage, and it turns out there are many of them living in every reader's favorite environment: the bookstore. With personalities and histories as varied as the books they tend, each cat has a story worth telling. Collected here are their tales, along with enchanting photos of the feline employees in their shops.

Most bookstore cats are famous in their local communities, many have been featured and profiled in entertainment outlets, and some even have their own books and social media accounts. Now, for the first time, some of the world's most beloved bookstore cats are collected together in one adorable directory, making the perfect gift for cat lovers, book lovers, shoppers, and the generally curious worldwide. Aside from keeping a bookseller free of mice, these noble creatures become part of the fabric of their environment and, while they chase away the mice, they lure in the world's cat-loving readers.

5Catnip For Cat Lovers Who Love Book Stores
By Layla Morgan Wilde
Bookstore cats of every stripe are literary ambassadors, welcoming committee, and cuddly browsing assistants designed to melt hearts. Buying this book is the next best thing to seeing them in person. See them hard at work (or slacking at the job) at an eclectic selection of independent bookstores from coast to coast in the U.S. and Canada. The beautifully designed and hefty hardcover with book ribbon is a quality gift for any cat lover. The book includes cat poetry, lists of books with cats as characters and other feline ephemera. Warning! It will make you want to visit the bookstore cats in person and purchase a copy there (sorry Amazon). Bravo to Brandon Schultz for championing indie booksellers and the many nuanced charms of cats.

5Adorable photos!
By A voracious reader
I confess that I'm not a cat lover, but I love bookstores and I love the photos in this book. The book has a great selection of many photos, and some of the cats' expressions are quite amusing. The printing process is very good and the photos are very colorful.

5Lovely book!
By Amy
Purchased one for someone who is kitty crazy, to much applause, but this will make a very suitable gift for people who are hard to buy for and for office mates and relatives. Will now be ordering a few for various different people on my Christmas list (shhhhh, don't tell)
