Share the Love on 'Caturday

kitten heart pages

Some cats become well known because of the role they play in a good book or because they live with an author or simply because they love how the pages of a good book feel. Here are some real and imaginary cats who love books almost as much as we do.

    Great post! I love the mix of real and fictional cats who love books. I especially enjoyed seeing the Cheshire Cat from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and the reference to Dr. Seuss. Keep up the good work!
