Library tree cat

On Thursday 21 October 2010, customers on the 2nd floor pointed out a grey cat sitting in a tree through sun and hail, looking lost. The fire brigade came along to try and coax him down from his lofty perch.

The drama ended when he crossed to the other side of Gloucester Street, using the tree as a leafy airbridge.

Libraries and cats have a long lasting connection. Last year we hosted a lost cat called Dell and there have been other cats in our libraries as more long term guests – including George who lived in the old Canterbury Public Library from 1963 to 1976 and Pete the Shirley Library cat.

    I have read that so long as you have a supply of bananas, Orangatangs are good in libraries.
    Every library should have a cat.
