More cat stuff

Libraries/librarians and cats seem to go hand in hand. Maybe, that is why I don't make a good book librarian. Give me those digital object, Baby!

It seems like someone had a lot of time on their hands because they made an interactive map of library cats. I.e. libraries that have cats that live in them. Strange but true.

Now, you can look up to see if your library has a cat lurking around the building.

Like I said, way too much time on their hands.



  1. Definitely too much time on their hands. They should be making themselves useful - my ironing basket is overflowing, for example.

  2. Just found your blog from a recommendation at Jan's Sushi Bar. Love your sarcasm! I'll be back.

  3. I created the Library Cats Map to help market my documentary film, "Puss in Books: Adventures of the Library Cat." It's been time well spent and invested, thank you very much.

  4. Hey, that is exactly the librarian in our local library. We literally have a cat that gives us library patrons filthy looks and makes us find everything ourselves.

  5. Now I have to follow the link for ironfrog and see if it really is the guy who made the map.

    I honestly had no idea that there were so many library cats in the world. I hadn't meet one in my life.

  6. I've never seen a library cat, but I love going in small local businesses that are patrolled by a resident pet. Makes things seem more homelike, somehow.

  7. It's amazing the information one can find online. LOL I had no idea any library actually had cats living in them on purpose. See I learned something new today!

    thanks for stopping by my place. :)

  8. Ha! I love it! It looks like most of the Missouri cats are from the Ozarks. Interesting...

  9. Being a cat lover I had to check it out, we did have a cat at our Columbus branch! Ha, too funny! :)
    Thanks for stopping by to check me out after seeing at over at K's :) Yeah for another veggie! :)
    Enjoy the last moments of the weekend :)

  10. is this for reals? I'm a sucker for a cat and a book.

    i am totally making that up.

  11. I would LOVE to have an office cat! But, I already clean up enough shit around here...I don't think I could deal with a litter box.

  12. I'm sad to announce that mine doesn't have a cat living there but I'm sure the local animal shelter would be happy to donate.

    What an odd site!
