Spike rules Left Bank Books in St. Louis, Missouri. He terrorizes dog visitors (but runs from small children), and he’s been known to upstage an author in the middle of a reading.
And Spike is an accomplished cat. He’s been featured on Fox 2 News in St. Louis. He makes a cameo appearance in at least two books. He was voted Bookstore Cat of the Year at 2012’s Book Expo America. And that’s him front and center in the store’s logo. All this attention would suggest he’s a charmer.
