I couldn’t resist sending you one more.

This is my cat, Tiertjie (“little tiger”), sitting on pp. 352 – 353 of The Time Traveler’s Almanac, ed. Ann & Jeff VanderMeer (Head of Zeus, 2013).


Photos of other felines resting on genre works are welcome. Send to mikeglyer (at) cs (dot) com

  1. Tiertjie looks annoyed. Did you interrupt their reading?

  2. @Lenore Jones: It looks to me as if Tiertjie was being vigilant against misbehaving time travelers.

  4. I’m coming late to this. Have you taken photos of cats sitting on genre books about cats? I’m thinking of some books from my long-ago childhood —- Lloyd Alexander’s “Time Cat” about a cat that can travel through time and take a child protagonist with him, and the “Space Cat” books of Ruthven Todd, a Scottish poet, who, when not editing the works of William Blake, wrote chapter books about a who went along with some astronauts as a sort of mascot, with his own space suit and telepathic powers.

  5. I can’t believe that we’re up to more than 60 of these posts already — plus a couple more which were included in scrolls and not tagged!

  6. @Jim Meadows: I loved those books! I have no idea whether they’d be readable now — they were definitely elementary-school level, and I don’t remember them well enough to say whether they had awkward politics etc. — but they were a lot of fun at the time.
