I Heart Shop Cats

On the weekend my friend Tracey and I puttered around the Valley.  We did some shopping as we went about our adventures, something we haven't done in quite some time... due to time and weather!


We went into one of our favourite Antique/Flea Market shops in Perth and came across Eddie this lovely shop cat!  He was a new addition since we had last been in there back in the fall.  He had to check out this box we wanted a closer look at.  After a chat with the shop owner we found out they had rescued him.  Makes me love that shop even more!


One of our last stops was at the Wool/Feed shop in Carleton Place.  Of course the feed shop (they also carry great cowboy boots which is what we stopped in to look at) had a shop cat... they of course would need one!  I'm sure this little kitty earns his/her keep.  I got a bit of a squeak when I didn't stop and give him/her a little love.

I just love going into a shop to find they've personalized it with a resident cat!

The local brewery has a couple of cats, who always greet you when you approach the bar. Beautiful Creatures.

Oh I love shop cats too Dani. It just makes me kinda sad that they are left alone at night.

CCute guys, nice to meet them while you're having a shopping day.

I adore shop cats...the hubby is allergic, so that's about the only time I get to hang out with sweet kitty cats!

Shop cats are the best in general and those two are very fine specimens.

There's not much better than unexpectedly encountering a cat. One or two of the pubs round here have their own cats too

How lovely, cats recognise a 'cat friendly' person, we must give off a 'wanna be stroked' scent. They are adorable.

Love them too!

Check out the lovely little sweetie in the book store in Picton, Ontario.

She loves you up and then gives you a little love bite for good measure and just to show you who really is in charge ;-)))

I love when shops have a cat. There is an antique store in Daytona that has one of the most beautiful cats I've ever seen.

The second cat you pictured is GORGEOUS!

A shop cat really gives the store personality!! The kitties are both so cute :)

Both cats are lovely.

I love the idea of a shop cat. When we were in NYC we went into a record store (and yes, they did have vinyl) in Greenwich Village which had one. So sweet!

Catherine said...

Aawww...so sweet!

When I was in Nashville, I met the shop cat in a printing shop! I had to get a pic. I love shop cats, too!
