Independent Bookstore Day is Saturday, April 30 and we wanted to commemorate this event by highlighting the special connection between bookstores and their friendly felines with a limited edition pouch.
Amanda, our manager of sales, started an Instagram account, @bookstorecats, where she features cats who make bookstores their home. She had interviewed over a hundred independent bookstores that have resident cats and chose six to grace the cover of the pouch.
Each cat has been illustrated to represent a genre of literature (See below)
Amelia from the Spiral Bookcase in Philadelphia, PA - SCI FI
Eleanor from Twice Sold Tales in Seattle, WA - ROMANCE
Bob Newhart from Recycle Bookstore in Campbell, California - CLASSICS
Teacup from Haslam's Bookstore in St Petersburg, Florida - YA
Emily Grace from Edisto Island Bookstore from Edisto Island, SC - MYSTERY
Trixie from Longfellow Books in Portland ME (she has since been adopted) - HORROR
Proceeds from each purchase support the ASPCA.
