VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A Vancouver vintage bookstore has a new furry companion.

West Columbia Gorge Humane Society said they took in the cat a while ago because his previous owner was dying of cancer.

After a summer at the shelter, the cat met his new owner Becky Milner of Vintage Books, who was looking for the perfect cat to roam her bookstore.

Milner said she decided to name the cat Emerson because all the cats in her store are named after famous authors.

She said Emerson is the perfect addition. He has been greeting customers each day and napping on bookshelves.
