Bookstore cat helps the less fortunate


nietzsche-the-catNietzsche, the feline resident of The Book Man bookshop in Chilliwack BC, has been using his new found fame for a good cause.

After being chosen one of AbeBooks’ top bookstore cats, Nietzsche used his star power to release a limited edition set of “pawtographed” bookmarks, which when sold raised $250 for Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven.

The Chilliwack Progress is now reporting that Nietzsche will be extending his charity work by releasing a calendar featuring images of himself, profits from the sale of which will also go towards the Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven.

Anyone interesting in submitting art of Nietzsche for the calendar can make an appointment with The Book Man to hang out with Nietzsche while creating the artwork. Any medium is permitted, including paintings, drawings, photographs, quilt work, weaving, rug hooking, sculptures, etc. as long as it’s in the likeness of Nietzsche.

We wish Nietzsche, and The Book Man, the best of luck in their quest to aid all of those less fortunate cats… and even dogs too. Nietzsche truly is lion among cats.
