Cats are pretty uninhibited when it comes to expressing their love of books—like this one, basking in the throes of literary worship.
Many cats are hardworking library and bookseller cats. Like this precious rat exterminator . . .
. . . or this watchful attendant.
Dignified and regal, they preside over book stacks.
They know how to get to the hard-to-reach spots . . .
. . . and when to pop out and lend a helping paw.
They monitor reshelving.
(Some better than others.)
They don’t mind working for tips.

They just love books so much!
They love reading books.
They love being read to.
They read while they eat.
Some can be protective of their reading materials.

Some cats love books so much they work as professional book endorsers!
Some even get book deals, like Dewey, the small town library cat who touched the world.
Some take starring roles in fiction, like in Clea Simon’s Kittens Can Kill.
All that work can make cats tired, of course.
Really, really tired.
Books are so comfortable!
You’ll never look as good on a pile of books as your cat. Not even you, Gwyneth.
Your dog won’t, either.

Nope. Sorry little girl.
So cute it hurts!
