Butter of Farley’s Bookshop

Farleys Books Butter

Butter holds down the fort at Farley’s Bookshop in New Hope, Pennsylvania.  Jen Farley fills us in on the story of Butter:

“Butter was a stray that found us. The vet thought that he was about 5 when he came to us, and that he had been living on the streets and starving. He was only 7 pounds then! As you may be able to tell, he is no longer 7 pounds. More like 17. He’s very good at convincing the different members of the staff that he has not been fed yet.

“Butter is extremely calm and mostly sleeps in the children’s room, so that he can be loved as much as possible. If he’s feeling particularly needy he will sleep on the counter, so that every single customer will give him attention as they’re coming in or checking out. Occasionally, he will go into one of the offices to sleep and leaves his devoted fans to wander around the store in disappointment, endlessly searching for him. He is by far the most popular member of the staff.”
