If you fall squarely in the center of the Venn Diagram of “loves books” and “loves cats,” you’ve come to the right place. There’s something about the connection of cats and books that runs a thread through history and continues to be seen through contemporary times. Perhaps it’s that cats are solitary creatures or that they’re likely to find themselves curled up in a wide array of spaces for their own leisure. Or maybe it’s that the sweet purr of a cat in one’s lap makes an excellent reading companion (in my house, this isn’t reality, as the cats are attention hogs, but books have suggested the other image to me as quite common).
I’ve done a roundup of cat notebooks in the past, and fellow Book Rioters have highlighted mugs with books and cats, as well as cat bookmarks. Find here even more great bookish cat goods — there’s something purrfect for everyone (don’t worry, folks: I’ve also got cat puns for days and some incredible literary cat names, too).
