Holly was born in March of 1995, and has been working at Bookhaven in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania since 1992. " I own her mother who is half her size. Holly was only supposed to stay at the store temporarily but she and the customers grew too fond of her presence so she took up permanent residence. She has been mentioned twice in the paper. Once as 'best shopcat' in a small neightborhood paper and once mentioned in an article about the bookstore in a citywide weekly paper. She was born in my closet when I took in her mother as a 'foster'. Her mother lives with me to this day. " Story and pictures sent in by Megan Andeer of Philadelphia, PA.
