Meet Our Cats of 2018!

Confession time. We’re cat people here at Baker & Taylor (OK, maybe that wasn’t a huge secret).

Every year we release our annual cat calendar featuring the faces of friendly felines from around the country. Many are even library cats! Now, we’d like to formally introduce them to you all.

Mew

Mew | 3 years old

Unique talent: We joke that Mew is more dog than cat. While we have only had him for six months, he has learned to sit on command.

What makes your cat special? He loves to have his belly rubbed, and will flop over on his back whenever one of us is close.  He has become my constant companion, and his favorite place to sleep is at the foot of my bed.

Deanna Hart, Lantern Lane (Stokesdale, NC)
