Shakespeare & Company’s bookstore cat Monty has died (pictured, via). The New York City bookstore mourned the cat in a short post today.

Here’s more from the bookseller’s tribute: “Scourge of dogs, invader of laps, lover of whatever you’re trying to eat.  His was the long, happy life of a badass bookstore cat.”

Two months ago, Monty starred in the debut post of the bookseller’s Tumblr. Patrons Safa Samiezade’-Yazd and Kara Zavada have already posted memories of Monty–did you ever meet this real life GalleyCat? (via Shelf Awareness)
