Simon’s Cat in Good Company: Winnie, Bay City Public Library (Texas)

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 vs. the World (available everywhere as of October 1st!) by featuring some of our favorite bookstore and library cats from around the world. Did you see us going cat-crazy on Tumblr a few months back? This is why. Come back every Wednesday and Friday in October to be introduced to a new purrfect pal.

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

Today, meet Winnie, the furry feline who calls the Bay City Public Library in Bay City, Texas her home. From the library staff:

Winnie adopted the Bay City Public Library in 2001. Although her exact age is unknown (we estimate her to be 14), she still has the lively spirit of a kitten. She enjoys long naps in the freshly emptied boxes of incoming books, assisting the employees and volunteers in the Staff Room with their daily duties (and lunch, if she can manage to distract them!), and being introduced to new library patrons of all ages.


(Ed. note: I feel you, Winnie. It’s Friday, and I think we all deserve a good nap. Too bad we can’t all look as cute as you while we’re sleeping!)
