Just For Fun

This weekend I am helping my mom with her report cards (always a stressful time for her and she isn't comfortable with computers) so I thought I would do a fun post while I had the time!

Meet Kitty, my "cat niece" who loves books, especially hardcover books. She particularly enjoys lying on textbooks so my sister can't study. She is very helpful like that :) Kitty has been a part of my family since she wandered into my sister's apartment complex in 2005.  She currently makes her home in Indiana with my sister, her family, and their collection of books.

Without further ado, here are some of Kitty's favorite books:

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
(Also one of my favorites!)

The Twentieth Wife by Indu Sundaresan
(I plan to borrow this when she is finished)

The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran
(I will hopefully be able to borrow this one soon)

For years I have been my sister's personal readers' advisor and I usually suggest books for her to try. I always try to get her to check out books from the library but considering how much her cat loves books it is probably a good idea for my sister to buy them instead!

Do you have a pet who loves books?

Thanks to my sister Reneta for taking the pictures and sending them to me and thanks also to Kari at A Good Addiction whose IMM posts with her adorable dog Toby were the inspiration for this one!


  1. LOL
    That's awesome.
    Great post.
    My black lab likes reading cuddle time but not the books themselves.
    My little poodle mix loves books :)

  2. Kitty is adorable!! I don't have any pets of my own, but we do a Read to Rover program at the library where kids can come in and read to dogs. The 3 dogs, Wussell, Clever, and Lola love to be read to and sit so patiently with all of the children for the whole two hours each time they visit. And sometimes we try to get the library newts involved in storytimes, but they aren't as much fun as the dogs!

  3. So cute! I absolutely love the picture of Kitty with The Heretic Queen.

    My cat is guilty as charged too, not only does she lay in the middle of my current read but also chews on the binding. Bad Winkie!

  4. Love the post, very cute and funny! =D

  5. So cute :) I had a cat that looked the same! I loved her! Great post :D

  6. Aww I love your "niece"! That's adorable.
    I wish my cat loved books--he swats at them to get my attention :S
    Great post!

  7. Kitty has great taste, The Book Thief is one of my favourites too.

  8. LOL you crack me up :)!!! Yay for Kitty having an interest in books!

    I have this pet monkey named Tim who hates books. Hates them. Eats them for breakfast.

  9. I love pictures of kitties with books. :) My two kitties are always cuddling up on my books. I was reading Gone with the Wind in bed last night when the little guy curled up in the middle of my chapter!
