Great books aren't the only thing Edmontonians have come to expect from the long-standing bookseller, Wee Book Inn. They're also known for cats!

Fleur lives on 82 Avenue. Although it isn't the original location (that one burnt down in 1990), Whyte Ave is the first place the shop was opened by Darwin Luxford back in 1971.

Fleur is her own cat and prefers to not be picked up or pet.

Fergy, a rescue from the Edmonton Humane Society, lives along Jasper Ave at the Wee Book Inn's downtown location.

This precocious lady isn't shy and will gladly play—customers just need to find one of her many toys strewn about the shop.
