Popoki was the ultimate store sales generator during his nearly twelve years. If you click on his photo, you can visit his memorial facebook page and learn about his remarkable story. He very bravely battled cancer and liver disease for a long time, but still managed to be the happiest cat in history.
Newest worker Biskit lived in a shelter between six months and ten months old. He was terrified of people and would hide in this little cubby hole any time someone came into the room he was living in. On warm days, Popoki and Cinnamon used to compete for who could get to lay against the screen once the window was open. Sometimes, they just had to share.
When Popoki was young, Cinnamon and Kamoa would sometimes have to tag team him to make sure he was cleaned up and polished and ready for the next day. Biskit likes to practice gymnastics during his work breaks.
Juni loves to play 'Dolls' during her work break, whereas Biskit likes to conduct 'test' naps on different soft surfaces, to see how the different colors look as a background to his very well kept coat.
MEET THE STAFF AT COZY BOOK CELLAR!!!!
Mr. Kamoa Moa the Magic Cat (AKA Big Guy, AKA Mr. K) was the first employee at Cozy Book Cellar. He was adopted from a Dog Pound, which luckily had taken in a few cats as well. He had been abandoned near a senior center and was skin and bones. He was so loved by the dog pound workers that they fed him Scooby snacks all day long for two months. Mr. K loved to be slung over your shoulder so he could purr away while watching everything fall away behind you. Kamoa was a giant marshmallow, sweet as can be, handsome beyond any photo, dignified and definitely was always in charge of the crew. Mr. K was our Shipping Manager.
FAVORITE TRICK: His patented Tippy-Toe Move. When he wants you to chase him, he gives out a little cat cry, gets on his tippy-toes, and scampers away.
Cinnamon Cookie - AKA Memere Squeaky. Cinnamon came to us from a shelter when she was six months old. She had been abandoned outside, was covered with fleas and ticks, and fighting a serious infection. She's shy from having really bad things happen to her when she was young, but she wants to be around people all the time. She still 'Squeaks' when she's picked up, but if she climbs on your desk, she will roll over and beg you to rub her belly. Cinnamon is our Inventory Manager.
FAVORITE TRICK: Cinnamon will stand on her hind legs and 'CATCH' post-its that have been rolled into a ball and thrown at her head. She them bats them back to you perfectly. She's not just good at this game, she's spectacular!
Alani Popoki - a very brave and very happy cat whose name means Orange Cat in Hawaiian - AKA Pretty Boy. Alani Popoki passed away on June 30, 2018 and the hole left in our hearts when he left is offset only by the joy he filled them with in his nearly twelve years. Alani Popoki was adopted from a shelter when he was four months old. He was a little shy around new people, but he loved to play and run around like a crazed cat. Popoki was the happiest cat you'll ever meet in spite of his illnesses and he was gentle beyond gentle. He even purred while getting his rabies vaccine! Popoki was our Sales Manager and all he had to do was look pretty to generate sales.
FAVORITE TRICK: Mr. Popoki had about 25 favorite tricks. You can read about them on his facebook page. If Popoki were still here, he would tell you: "Just remember, every act of kindness ripples forward through the universe forever."
Juniper Mist (aka Junie B. Jones the lovable rascal, J.J. or just Juni) was adopted from a shelter in November, 2007. She was part of a large litter belonging to a stray cat that lived in the woods near someone's house. The people living there managed to rescue the entire litter from the cold outside - except for Juni! They were able to snag her two weeks later and brought her to a shelter. In spite of not having contact with people until she was four months old, Juni is a sweetie who will snuggle under the blanket with you if you let her and purrs away whenever you pet her. She collects paper clips, so Juni has been put in charge of Office Supplies and Purchasing. With the passing of Mr. Kamoa, Juni has also become Shipping Manager.
FAVORITE TRICK: Sneaking into the linen closet with perfect timing so that you can't see her do it. She claims that she becomes temporarily 'Indivisible' so that no one can ever see her do it. We explained that while she is indeed, indivisible, that she probably had a different word in mind.
Juni makes up lots of words, and she still refers to Kamoa Moa as Mr. Kamoey every time she walks up to him, as in, "Mr. Kamoey, it's me Juni. Do you want some help eating your food?"
Biskit is our newest family member and worker. This was Biskit when he was about 8 months old when we first met him. Biskit was caught accidentally in the wild when he was six months old by a volunteer trying to catch a pregnant cat. Usually, he would have been neutered and then released back out to his colony, but he was so small that the volunteer decided to bring him into a shelter for safe keeping. It took volunteers weeks before they could even see Biskit, who would hide in a small cubby in his cage. We met Biskit when he was over 8 months old, and we visited him many times at the shelter before adopting him in April, 2019. Biskit was very feral but gentle and mostly very scared. He would have a panic attack if you tried to pick him up. It took many, many hours and weeks of work, but now Biskit is just a normal little housecat. We can pick him up without problem, he purrs away, sleeps on the sofa next to us at night, and loves working at the bookstore with his new soulmate, Mr. Kamoa Moa. He is sweet, goofy, adorable and very loving. We are so happy he has come into our lives.
FAVORITE TRICK: Biskit likes to tug on the water bowl, enjoying watching the water slosh back and forth until the water covers the kitchen floor. After he takes a little drink, he uses the floor as his own personal Slip-n-Slide.
We are very sad to have to let everyone know that Mr. Kamoa Moa passed away in April, 2020 after a very brief illness linked to a very aggressive cancer. Mr. Kamoa was our first employee at the store. He was the ultimate laid back alpha cat, he was a gentleman in every sense of the word, graceful, sweet, gentle, affectionate and has left an enormous hole in our hearts. Kamoa was approximately 18 years old when he passed away and had a very happy life with us.
