In Bangalore, India, there is a bookstore where kitties call the shots. Everyday they pick a spot of their choice at the store and nap on a stack of new books or magazines. When people come by to pet them, they’d gladly turn around and offer their belly.

“I took these photos in my friends bookstore in Bangalore…. These two lovely, white and brown kittens were sleeping when I was strolling around this Book Shop and it was a coincidence that this cat came at the right time and sat near them,” said Najeeb Khan.

These cats at the bookstore may just be that extra motivation for many people to pick up a book and read. See Bookstore cats from different parts of the world.

After rescuing four small stray kittens without their mother, a fifth, much smaller kitten was found. “On Auguest 8th, 2012, he came to join his siblings. He had a very rough start, but persevered, and is currently doing well,” said Robyn Anderson.

Fred picked him up, and then Tony’s mouth opened. I wrapped him in a warm blanket, and brought him downstairs, where I sat on the couch with him. He was so cold and still and barely breathing, that we both believed it was only going to be a matter of time. We discussed what to do and decided to try to get some fluids into him. I didn’t think it would do any good, but it was certainly worth a try. So I syringed some Pediasorb into his mouth, which he swallowed. And then I syringed some more in, and he swallowed it. I held him on a warming pad on my lap, and at one point he cried out and arched his back and I didn’t think it would be long. I think it was about an hour and a half after we found him that all of a sudden he rolled onto his stomach and looked up at me and said ‘What?’,” wrote Robyn on her blog.

“When we found him Friday morning, I would have said there was no chance that he was going to make it…. Not only has he started eating like it’s going out of style, but yesterday he started PLAYING, and I only wish I had taken the camera upstairs with me when I went up to offer them some wet food at noon. After he ate (and ate and ate and ate), Tony (Rocky Horror) Pickle walked around and batted at toys, and then he play-fought with Polly and with Joe, and in both cases the bigger kittens were fairly gentle with him, but when he thought they were getting the better of him, he growled and yowled, and Polly and Joe backed right off. Oh, he is going to be a force to be reckoned with.”

“He’s up over a pound now…. He’s playful, he loves snuggling up with (and beating up on) his siblings, he’s using the litter box faithfully, and last night? Perfect poop. He earned the Gold, Silver AND Bronze medals. From half-dead to the poopin’ champ of the world in 10 short days! Now that, my friends, is a success story,” Robyn added on her blog.

Tony had a rough start, but persevered and now thriving!

This brood of five very fuzzy foster kitties love to get sleepy, stretch, and settle down for a nap together. Meet the Furman five! “Even though there’s a great deal of diversity in this group, they still look like a little family, don’t they?” wrote Laurie C. on her blog Itty Bitty Kitty Committee.

This young calico cat mama was found with a big belly, pregnant. They brought her to the shelter and immediately found her a foster home. “Her name is Perti. She is adorable and sweet and curious,” said Perti’s foster mom.

Perti gave birth to a litter of five tiny furballs. “She had them in the closet that I had prepared for her, so everything had been sanitized and cleanup was a snap.”

The protective cat mama started cleaning and nursing her kittens as soon as they popped out of her womb. She works day and night caring for her kittens and the kittens latch on her like magnets.

Becka woke up to her kitty on top of her with a surprise around his neck. The lovely kitty named Tucker helped his human dad propose that day.

“I proposed to my girlfriend of 7 years today … I’m bad at this kind of stuff so I had my cat help me out,” said Dhareza M, a designer and photographer from New York. “To think nobody wanted him (Tucker) at the shelter… I think we scored big when we brought him home!” said Becka via reddit.
