Cat from Portland {USA}

If you are visiting Portland in Oregon, you should head to the local Safeway store to meet Cecil the cat.

He goes to the store almost every morning to greet the customers. Sometimes he waits by the door to greet everyone who walks in from the parking lot. At other times, he is napping away on top of a stack of soda boxes by the window. Cecil is almost always the first customer of the day and waits for the counter to open.

Many customers wonder if the cat is lost, so they call the number on his collar. They then get this message: "If you're calling about Cecil at the Safeway, don't worry. He just likes to hang out there. He lives nearby and will find his way home when ready."

Just like the store cats of Tiverton and Saltney, Cecil has become quite a celebrity and even has his own Facebook page.

P.S. I'll be donating 50% of this month's royalties of my book Avalon: a Heartwarming True Cat Story to the cat shelters Ever'y Cat and Cat Rescue. Please consider purchasing a few copies to give as Christmas presents to the cat lovers in your life and to help save cats this Christmas.

The book is available at B&N / Amazon US / Amazon UK / Amazon FR and many others.

  4. Cecil is a lovely addition to a grocery store, although I imagine there are some folks who object. Clearly not cat lovers, though!

  24. Cecil is such a cutie! I think a grocery store would be a great place to hang out if you were a cat. It's great that people call on him enough that he has a special voicemail message. :)

  25. That is so adorable and neat! He is the Safeway mascot. :)

  26. Those are some beautiful cats. I always like it when they have collars on too because it means it's not a stray. Though my friend has two cats and neither has collars because they never go out. So maybe they are owned.

    Collar your cats people!
