This #bookhaul post was from 3 years ago, so it took a lot of scrolling. 😂 And it also features my favorite jerk cat (RIP sweet baby boy #kingcyress 😭). But out of these 10, I read 6, bailed on 1, and still haven‘t read 3 of them. However, out of the 6 read, I only really loved one of them (tagged here, not the original), so not a hugely successful book haul from June 2016? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Thanks for a trip down memory lane, @Lcsmcat! #bookhaulchallenge

LauraBeth King Cyress was such a beauty! I wasn‘t aware that you‘d lost him - so sorry to hear that! 🧡 5mo
erinreads @LauraBeth Thank you. 💕 He really was a gorgeous cat. 5mo
Lcsmcat He was a beautiful cat! Thanks for playing, and good job! 5mo

We had to put my sweet boy to sleep today and I‘m a wreck. Cyress was my husband and I‘s first cat together and HOLY HELL, losing him was probably the hardest thing I‘ve ever been through. I‘ve cried more in that past couple of days than I have my whole life. Things are so tough right now, but I know he‘s at peace finally, so at least I can take comfort in that. 😿 Great Valentine‘s Day, btw. 👌🏻 #kingcyress #catsoflitsy

Someone‘s not being helpful choosing my next book. 🤷🏼‍♀️ The tagged book is for #pop19 and The Winter Sea is for #Booked2019 (my #happyplace, i.e. Scotland). #decisionsdecisions #kingcyress #catsoflitsy

Littlestbookshelf I have not read the Alice network yet but The Winter Sea is one of my favorite books! I love books set in Scotland! 12mo
TheLibrarian Beautiful kitty and The Alice Network is amazing!! 12mo
Melissa_J Both are very good, but I‘d go with 12mo
VeganCleopatra I'd definitely choose The Winter Sea. 12mo
CoffeeNBooks Gorgeous cat! The Alice Network is great! 12mo

Can I help you? 😹 In all honesty, I‘m actually really glad to see him in the bed tonight because he‘s been sick for a couple of months now and hasn‘t really been himself. So although I‘m not pleased we had to resort to steroids as a treatment, he has been a little like his old self lately and if he wants to harass me while I‘m reading, knock yourself out, buddy! #kingcyress #catsoflitsy

Freespirit Glad he is feeling better. It's horrid when pets are sick. 12mo
Tamra Yay! 12mo

I don‘t think my cats are strangers here on Litsy, but any excuse to post about them again, I am all for it. 😹

On the left, we have Cyress (age: ~6-10). We adopted him nearly 3 years ago and he‘s still as much of a jerk as he was when we first got him, but still the love of my life. And on the right is Cooper (age: 8 months), who we have had since September. He‘s completely nuts, but LOOK AT THAT FACE. 😻 #kingcyress #damnfinecooper #petsoflitsy

erinreads PS. I clearly love the portrait mode on my phone. 😂😂😂 13mo
Zelma Soooo cute! Our youngest is a jerk too but super cute and loving. 13mo
Kaye Pretty ! 13mo

silentrequiem Cyress: pissed off judgy look. Cooper: Hi, I'm trouble. 13mo
erinreads @silentrequiem Nailed it. But then again I think those are the two default resting cat faces. 😹 13mo
silentrequiem @erinreads There's also the super adorable pathetic look because they want something. Ginger is VERY good at that one. 13mo
Purrfectpages Adorable! I think if you have more than one cat it‘s an unwritten rule one of them has to be a jerk 😆 13mo
VeganCleopatra 😆 I love that jerk cat, he's beautiful and knows it too. 13mo

Even #KingCyress is excited for my #jolabokaflodswap book from @whippoorwill815! Thank you so much, Amy! 💕 Can‘t wait to start this book later and dive into the peanut butter smidgens! Also, it‘s not that I don‘t like the bookmark, but it slid off and this perfect photo op presented itself before I could get it. 😹😹😹 Thank you @MaleficentBookDragon for organizing what I hope becomes a Litsy tradition! 🎄 #catsoflitsy

whippoorwill815 Yay I‘m so glad you like it!! It is quite a perfect photo!! Those smidgens are addicting 😜 I‘ve been semi stalking you all month worried that someone else was going to get you that book!Hope you enjoy everything, Merry Christmas !! 🎄 13mo
KatieDid927 Awww cutie 13mo
erinreads @whippoorwill815 I was REALLY hoping for her book, so I‘m glad to finally have it! And I‘ll be honest, I‘m probably breaking into the smidgens after I get home from breakfast! Sounds so good. Merry Christmas! Thanks again! 😽 13mo

Sorry Litsy, I can‘t come to the phone right now, I‘ve got this new little butter bean keeping me busy/stealing the lap space a book generally does. This is Cooper (husband is a big Twin Peaks fan, so I got the kitten, he got the name 😹). We‘re on day 3 and haven‘t introduced him to #KingCyress yet, so the real fun hasn‘t even begun. 😬 #catsoflitsy #damnfinecooper

My cat has been creeping on me so hard tonight. I just stopped reading and turned off the light and now he‘s back behind my head, yelling in my ear because I won‘t move my head so he can get to my pillow. #kingcyress #catsoflitsy #catsy
