Bookish Cats

Monday Feb 26, 2007 09:35:00 AM

Bean go to bookstore run by cats this weekend. It called One for the Books on Del Prado Blvd. I suppose I could walk there, but it would be really long walk.

Abby used to run bookstore. She was tailess cat with lots of tales. He!He! Now her protogee, an orange marmalade tabby many-toed Hemming-cat runs store. I forget cat's name.

This is best bookstore in Florida. It carries and old books on cat and dog beans and on many other subjects as well. Old books - called used books because some one read them before - are much less expensive than new books. I don't see what diffrence it makes, as the words and pictures are still there even though someone else read them first.

It also carries rare and antiquated books and they are book-finders for Beans that are looking for hard to get books. They import from overseas as well. Bean has come home with many good books from this store.

This week we get Complete Book of the Cat which was published in 1984. It is a little out of date but it has some very good sections on colors and markings of cats, plus grooming and showing of cats. We also get book "Why Paint Cats?" which goes back to my post on Painted Cats.

There is picture in it of Puuuuuurrrrrsian getting painted and it is just sitting there, calmly offering paw for painting. So is real Sarah, not photo-shopped.

It says there is also a massage technique used by Japanese Noh Theater to get cats ready to be painted. Cats that work in theater will not wear masks, so they're costumes must be painted on.

It is interesting book, but I will talke more about painting of cats later.

What Bean said was of interest at the store is the number of books on the training of cats. Cats meanwhile, have never needed books to train humans. We do very good job of training humans without help of books. Which only shows, cats are superior species.

Bean wants go back to bookstore for two more books The Silent Mieow and a book on Kliban Calendar Cats. These are both used books, but she says she will have to wait until after Wednesday, which is payday for her. She still has not purchased me Catser-plus and she did promise.

We also not take pictures yet, and she promise that too. She did set up website for me, but now I need to find time to work on it. Hard to do between sleeping, eating, sleeping, hunting and sleeping.

One for the Books
3810 Del Prado Blvd S,
Cape Coral, FL 33904
Phone: (239)540-2665

This is store that also did adoptions of Hemming-cats last summer. It is good that they are so feline minded!

The Silent Mieow is a personal favorite of ours. Polydactyls are pretty cool, too. We all just have a regular number of toes, so no Hemming cats here- but it would be cool to have the extra claw. I wonder how the pups would like that? hee hee
