Cat from Vicenza {Italy}

This cat is famous in Italy!

Meet Leo, the feline manager of the Oliveti stationary shop in Vicenza.

“The story of Leo is one that I really love,” says photographer Marianna Zampieri. “The cat was free, but he decided to stay at Oliveti and love his owner from the day he appeared at the shop.”

Leo is a gorgeous stationary shop manager and he knows how to charm the customers to a point where they come back regularly, just for him.

He greets all customers by rubbing against their legs. Those that give him scratches behind his ears are treated to extra cuddles.

When Leo has worked enough for the day, he hides among the collectors or curls up in his cat bed.

  2. He is a cutie, I can see why he is famous.

  3. Leo is a handsome boy. I love that the shots are all in B&W.

  4. What a handsome boy Leo is and how lucky for shoppers to have a store with a resident cat!

  5. When I go back to Venice (which I will) I will stop by this place and visit with the cat. I'm sure he's going to make me buy a lot of stuff.
