I only know of one bookshop that has cats. I too love seeing them around, looking for a scratch on the head, etc.

I've never been in a good book store that didn't have cats. Cats and books, just a natural pairing.

Grins and smiles- thanks Katka.

Awwe, how sweet! Whenever I tried to read a book, one of my cats would inevitably head-butt it, marking it with its scent, or rub their jaws against it; I guess it felt good to them. Thnx Katka.

Just love Elmo and Red! And love this book store with two such charming characters! Cats and books and great poets go together... look at T.S. Elliot who absolutely adored cats and wrote Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats which is a collection of whimsical poems. Every cat love and poetry lover too, should have a copy of this enchanting book about cat's incredible personalities and all their captivating charms! Wow, what a great
place and what a great story! Thanks Katka.

Great story!
We have a Pet Food Center that has 2 resident cats, but I don't know of any bookstores that have them - bummer!
