Mental Floss rounds up twelve bookstore cats from around the nation. Highlights include Asimov, who lives in a sci-fi store and has one blue and one green eye, and a much-loved but now departed hairless cat named Ripley from San Francisco. Williamsburg's Spoonbill & Sugartown and Chelsea's Rob Warren Books represent for New York City. By the way, guess how many comments the post has so far? As of this writing: 59. It's almost like people on the Internet really like cats. [Mental Floss]
