Best Bookstore Cats
Cats are awesome. Books are awesome. Ipso facto, bookstore cats are the best. And a bookstore named after its residents cats is the bees knees. Such is the case with Berkeley's Sleepy Cat Books, an Orinda transplant that arrived on Telegraph Avenue in 2018. Home to kitties Lyla, a mellow white sleepyhead, and Oliver, a gray and white talker, the store's motto is perfect: “Read a book. Pet a Cat. Save the World.” Store owner Jeff Koren says that the felines really love living in the store and meeting the customers and that Cal students love to come by and pet them. Stop by and pet them yourself. Don't forget to pick up a high quality, gently used book, too! Follow these kitty literati on Instagram at #sleepycatbooks.
