It is with tremendous sadness that I report that Fup, the beloved Store Cat at Powell's Books, has died. She was 19 years old.
I saw her around the store on several occasions, quietly surveying her domain. Her presence is one of the many things that made Powell's such a wonderful place to spend a cold, rainy (or even a sunny) day. And anyone who's read the Powell's Books Newsletter has followed her "adventures" for years (it's the part of the newsletter I always jumped to first)! I am absolutely gutted that she's gone, but am happy to know that she passed away in her "home" surrounded by her loved ones.
Rest sweetly, beautiful Fup. You are missed.
