Cat Poop Coffee

In Indonesia you can pay $50 for cat poop coffee. It’s actually made from a civet, which looks like a cross between a cat and a ferret.

“The civet climbs the coffee trees to find the best berries, eats them, digests the berries and eventually out comes the coffee beans in its stools. Farmers then pick up the civet droppings and take the beans to a processing plant. Something about the gastric juices in the civet’s stomach gives Kopi Luwak its unique flavor.”

In case you were wondering, no, I’m NOT going to be making you any coffee.

PLA Conference

Look at all the pictures of Miss Julie last week at the PLA conference in Philadelphia! But why would people from the library be going to a conference about the Chinese People’s Liberation Army?

Trixie’s Bookshelf: Cat’s Colors

What is my favorite color? Is it red, like the sofa in the children’s library? Is it yellow, like the sunshine I like to lie in? Is it green, like the money the library collects from fines? Is it gray, like my fur? No, it’s purple, like Sara’s hair! Find out what Cat’s favorite color is in this picture book by Jane Cabrera.

If you’re visiting Topeka, you might stop by the Cat Association of Topeka. In addition to a cat shelter, they have the Catty Shack store where you can get cat food, pet supplies, and gift items (and meet some of the cats that live there!).

Trixie’s Bookshelf: I Walk at Night

“Drawn by sweet memories of caves and jungle trees, making my way once more out through the kitty door. Into the night,” says the cat in Lois Duncan’s I Walk at Night. I don’t get to go out at night, but I do have a whole library full of darkness to prowl through. What do I do? Where do I go? What do I see? Maybe I’ll wrote a book about it!
