This Cat Lives In A Bookstore, But Isn’t Known For Her Customer Service Skills…


In Charlotte, North Carolina, Page the cat was found after being tossed in a dumpster like a piece of trash. Luckily, the folks at Book Buyers discovered and appropriately named the feline, who was just a tiny kitten at the time. With a little coaxing, Page befriended the humans, and now the kitty calls the bookstore home.

However, customer service isn’t exactly her specialty.

Says Page – The Bookstore Cat’s Facebook page, “I help guard Book Buyers and love receiving your adoration (from afar).”

Local book store has a shop cat with a lot of personality.

(Let’s be honest…this kind of instigation would make anyone cranky!)

Although Page isn’t the friendliest employee, customers, nonetheless, enjoy watching her antics. Take a look:

Just hangin’ around…

I’m sitting like this because it is an ancient technique on helping one’s qi to flow.

She certainly knows how to command attention!

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.

These lucky humans must be part of the favored few.

This is my good side. Blue Steel.

Looks like she’s living a bookworm’s dream!

Where are the Paranormal Romance books you ask? They’re two aisles down, on your right.
