Simon’s Cat in Good Company: Atticus, King’s Books (Tacoma, WA)

October is cat month here at Akashic, as all of us adore those furry felines (well, almost all of us—someone here has allergies). We’re celebrating the release of Simon’s Cat Off to the Vet . . . and Other Cat-astrophes! (available everywhere October 29!) by bringing back our Simon’s Cat in Good Company feature, spotlighting some of our favorite bookstore and library cats from around the world. Check our website throughout October to be introduced to some new purrfect pals.

(Interested in finding a feline friend of your own? Consider adopting one on October 29th, also known as National Cat Day!)

Today, meet Atticus, the reigning monarch at King’s Books in Tacoma! From the store staff:

Store cat Atticus is the reigning monarch of King’s Books in Tacoma, WA. He has won the hearts of Tacomans and has his own fan club. Atticus was previously a prize-winning rodeo rider who then became a friar. He joined the bookstore staff in 2009 and serves as both a shoulder-warmer and a spunky bookseller.

Atticus, master of all he surveys

Atticus, master of all he surveys. Just look at that tag!
