In this holiday edition of “The Furry Faces of Bookselling: Bookstore Pets,” BTW is highlighting bookstore pets, as well as pets of ABA staff members, getting festive for the holidays.

Henry and Francis, two kittens

Henry and Francis, owned by ABA Content Director Sydney Jarrard: “Christmas with kittens Francis and Henry is very cute but it also means no ornaments on the tree this year and no presents under the tree unless they're pretty durable. Easy price to pay for the fun of welcoming two kittens to the family!”

Penny, owned by ABA ABC Children’s Group Manager Gen de Botton: “When cats are involved, decorating a tree is futile so we've opted for the more organic/natural approach of living ornaments.

Horton’s Books & Gifts in Carrollton, Georgia, posted to Instagram: “The hard life of a bookstore cat!!”
