Bookstore Kittehs!

We haven’t had enough of the cute and furry round here lately.  Happily, thanks to Brian Switek and Brian Romans, that sad situation is remedied:

When they aren’t trashing the occasional pricey manuscript with their teeth and claws, cats – in all their blissful sloth – serve as wonderfully calming (if sometimes haughty) hosts: Have a seat, take it easy, get lost in a book. A bookstore cat is a shop’s mascot and keeper, equally adept at charming customers and, when the lights go out, chasing away rodents.

I do not believe it to be a coincidence that as I was squealing over the slideshow of adorable bookstore kittehs, my very own little hell beast went and posed prettily against our own bookshelves.  Alas, the camera was out of reach, and I made the mistake of mentioning that if she really was a bookstore kitteh, she’d have to put up with children wanting to pet her, so she stopped playing bookstore kitteh before the camera could be retrieved.  There’s only one thing she hates more than humans, and that’s small humans.

So no, she’d never make it in a bookstore, but the other kittehs profiled love their job.  So do go enjoy their company.
