The Library Cat Society,

The New York Public Library * has a famous pair, named Patience and Fortitude. Did your hometown public library have a cat-in-residence? 

Well, the Library Cat Society promotes the placement of well-read cats in libraries everywhere. You think I'm joking? Visit the map of library cats at and see for yourself the resident felines at the Kitsap Regional Library, the Ocean Shores Public Library, the Port Townsend Public Library, and many others.

And we can't leave the subject of cats without a paw to Cats & Dogs,, although cats again are once again tragically misunderstood.   

* You may even purchase a pair of Library Lion bookends from the Museum Store,
