Community Bookstore is one of Brooklyn’s oldest indie bookstores. And Tiny is their beloved bookstore cat. Folks at Community have no doubt that “our entire marketing budget goes to cat food.”

For a fun treat, take a scroll down Community’s facebook page to their 6/27/14 post—the store turtle “made a run for it.”

Loganberry Otis a


Otis joined the staff of Loganberry Books in Shaker Heights, Ohio, in 2008– to be adored by customers and staff ever since.


Playful Otis will race his co-worker to the counter where they’ll tag each other at the finish line. And if there’s a ladder in the store, Otis can often be found at the top of it.


Find Otis front-and-center on Loganberry’s Facebook page
