Books and cats are the purr-fect combination. Cats make an ideal reading companion as they ask so little of you while you’re consuming your next chapter, and in the colder weather, they help keep your lap or your feet toasty. Not only do they provide cozy kinship, but cats offer an incredible array of purrfect literary puns for readers, too. Even if you don’t have your own cat to snuggle with or love on, never fear. One of the ways you can hang with the cool cats is with an array of cat bookmarks.

Whether you love a good magnetic bookmark, a fancy above-the-book-edge bookmark, or just love cute images of sweet or funny felines, look no further. You’ll find that sweet cat bookmark below.

Cat bookmarks aren’t enough? Never fear. We’ve got a roundup here of awesome cat notebooks, so you’ll want to purr-use that list for more bookish kitty finds.

There’s no use leaving you hanging….you know we’ve also got a list of literary cat names for when you’re itching for inspiration to name your tome-tastic tabby or tortie something with bookish cred. Meow!
