Independent Bookstore Day and our Limited Edition Cat Pouch

Posted: Apr 28 2016

Out of Print Cat Pouch for Independent Bookstore Day

As consummate cat lovers, we are honored to participate in Independent Bookstore Day and excited for the opportunity to share a few of our favorite felines from the indie bookseller community.

Our manager of sales, Amanda, has been personally documenting hundreds of resident cats in bookshops all over the world. Learn more about her pet project HERE.

As was the case with the very old man in the children's classic Millions of Cats, it was hard to decide which cats to feature. Our pouch celebrates six real bookstore kitties from across the country and each represents a different genre of literature.
