It's time for another edition of "Blusty on Books!" Today, we are featuring two shots of @itsakirby's "She's Having A Doris Day" which I purchased at the @knifeforkbook customer appreciation sale, and have recently completed (now that Blusty deigned to return it to me, of course). #cat #Blusty #blustyonbooks #blustyadventures #books #poetry #canlit #knifeforkbook #jeffkirby #sheshavingadorisday #secondedition #signedbooks #canqueer #queerlit #greeneyes #paws #whiskers #earfurnishings #boop #kittytoes #purring #interruptingcat #readin2017 #meow #agoodboy #chapbook #fuckyeah #luvyourlife #booklove #bestfriend
