Christmas for Two Kitties December 24, 2011Posted by Galaxy in Musings.

One of the most difficult parts of our decision to move has been the understanding that we will not be able to bring our beloved cats, Scout and Jem, along with us. We have had them for over two years now, since they were six weeks old, and they have been wonderful additions to The Galaxy Bookshop. As much as we love them, we want them to have the very best home, and the smaller space on Main Street (which also does not have the extra barrier to the street that we have at the bank building) does not seem like the ideal place for two cats used to roaming upstairs and down at will.
On this Christmas Eve, the two kitties will be going to their new home, one where we are sure they will receive plenty of love and treats and all the tummy rubbing they require. This new home is with one of our customers, and we hope that we will receive updates from time to time on how Scout and Jem are doing. When we do, we’ll be sure to share with all of you.
So, please join us in wishing our kitties and their new family well. They (and we) thank you for all of the love they’ve received from their many friends and fans during their time as bookshop cats.
Merry Christmas, from all of us ~ Linda, Sandy, Stella, Claire, Ivy, Scout, and Jem
