Apothecary cats were traditionally kept by rural families as a way to ward off evil spirits and disease. The cats were believed to have healing powers and were often kept near the hearth or stove, where they could bask in the warmth and offer their purr-power to those in need. Today, guardian cats are more poplar than ever; diligently watching over not just apothecaries, but also in bookshops, giftshops, museums and even cafes.
