Spike of Left Bank Books

30 Apr

Left bank spike 2

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.

Bartleby, Bookstore Cat at Adams Avenue Books

Bartleby at Adams Ave San Diego

Adams Avenue Book Store in San Diego, CA is home to felines Bartleby and Felixia. Here’s Bartleby, a cat who will wear the occasional costume, if properly rewarded. Bartleby has his own Facebook page, like some bookstore pets we know. But this cat goes one better with his own sidelines. Bartleby magnets and Christmas cards, anyone?

Beloved feline Franny resides at Skylight Books in Los Angeles, CA. Here she is surrounded by images from classic films, starring herself. She’s just the sort of bookstore cat that would have her own Instagram account.

Jennie, store cat at Snow Goose Bookstore

Snow Goose Jennie 2a

Meet Jennie, store cat at Snow Goose Bookstore in Stanwood, Washington. Jennie slipped through the front door one day last year and was invited to “try out for the role of bookstore cat.” After a one-month probationary period, Jennie agreed to stay. Snow Goose staff reports, “We named her Jennie after the very wise and brave tabby in Paul Gallico’s novel ‘The Abandoned.’ She’ll be learning how to run the computers very soon (already very familiar with lying atop keyboards)…”

Loganberry Books has a cat named Otis

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

Ash Escapist II

This is Ash, resident cat at The Escapist Comic Bookstore in Berkeley, California. Ash grew up at Comic Relief, another Berkeley institution, and moved to The Escapist when Comic Relief closed in 2011. Ash likes to curl up on visitors’ laps, and she loves kids. And when she’s had enough, Ash retreats upstairs for a nap.
