I have had more than one embarrassing “my cat ate my book” discussion with a local library in my life. More than one of my feline companions enjoys chewing book pages with reckless abandon, though to give them some credit, their desire for paper consumption pales in comparison to the rabbit’s. All of that is to say, much as I love the image of a cat on a book stack — and I do! — in my house it is far more fantasy than it is reality. Fortunately, there are plenty of cute cats on book stacks goods, ranging from stickers to pins to tees and more to at least pretend that such a serene world exists somewhere.

These finds are for cat lovers, as well as those who appreciate cute animals atop books. I’ve found an array of fun items, with a range of different familiars, to satisfy that desire to see two excellent things of life together in one place.

Grab your wallets (or maybe hide them!) and snag some of these sweet cats on book stacks goods for your home or office. Just…keep some of them away from your own cats if yours are anything like mine.
