According to Gothamist, the long-time store cat from Manhattan’s Skyline Books needs a new home, as they are is closing up shop at the end of this month (after being in business for about 20 years) and the owner has other pets at home that she believes won’t get along with the eight year-old bookstore cat, Linda. Update: The owner of Skyline says he’s taking the cat home with him. Unfortunately, I also must report that my favorite Brooklyn bookstore with a cat, Bookcourt, no longer has their resident store cat around. He developed some behavioral issues and it was decided he’d be happiest in a home and not a store. Oh well, they must do what’s best for the cat and their customers!
