Elvis was rescued from a cat colony. He loves attention and gets along well with other cats. He is looking for his Furever Home. Elvis is available for adoption through Castaway Critters.






Annika is our second resident bookstore cat or our 'reluctant' bookstore cat.  Squeekie would be very sad whenever all the adoptable cats went away so Annika came to stay with him permanently.  She is very grumpy but she might tolerate you if you give her a few treats.

Annika is the author of one book: The Very, Very Bad Misadventures of Annika the Reluctant Bookstore Cat which was written by her human servants.



Mouse is our third resident bookstore cat. Mouse was born in the bookstore during the shutdown for COVID-19 in the spring of 2020. He is a super chill boy who is happy to get attention from anyone, and loves to chase after his crinkly ball toys. Mouse is also an adventure cat and visits many hotspots in central PA in his backpack and on his harness.

Mouse has three books about him which can be found at the Shop page of this website or at his website.



Zak is our fourth resident bookstore cat. He loves attention more than anything. He sometimes joins Mouse on his adventures outside the bookstore.


Squeekie was our resident bookstore cat for eight years. Our sweet boy passed away on March 24, 2021.

There are three published books about Squeekie: The First Nine Lives of Squeekie the Bookstore Cat; The Second and Third Nine Lives of Squeekie the Bookstore Cat; and Squeekie Celebrates 20 Years of the Cupboard Maker Books. His close friends wrote down the stories of his adventures for him.  The first book was written by bookstore employees, the second by local authors, and the third is a mix including both new stories and the best stories from the first two collections.


All of the cat's books can be found at our Shop page for purchase.
