  • Bookstore cats enjoy a cult following, and many 'run' their own social media profiles
  • Bookstore cats are regularly covered in media. Many of the included cats have been previously profiled

Bookstore cats are an international phenomenon, festooning book lovers' havens worldwide. This is a collection as entertaining and as adorable as the cats themselves.

Most bookstore cats are famous in their local communities; many have been featured and profiled by 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.

Through 50 color photos, Brandon Schultz documents dozens of cats with personalities and histories as varied as the books they tend. These literary felines are found all over the USA, from major cities like Chicago and Philadelphia, to smaller towns such as Abbotsford, British Columbia and Portland, Indiana. 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 vermin, they lure in the world's cat-loving readers.

Brandon Schultz loves cats, bookstores, and especially bookstores run by cats. Among other things he is a book publisher, travel writer, and ice cream enthusiast. This is his fourth book, and he lives in Brooklyn, New York, with a cat named Lucy, who has previously authored her own book.
