Subject: Chat:  Library Cats

(Let's see if this will slip by the moderators on a Friday afternoon ... )

Okay, this isn't a serials-related question, but this list provides such a
wonderful access to such a wide variety of libraries and librarians and
library staff that I simply can't pass up the opportunity to pick your
brains.  My library is bandying about the idea (not too seriously) of
acquiring a library cat.  I'm curious how many and what types of libraries
have resident cats and whether or not on the whole it is a positive
experience for all involved.

Thanks much,


Donna Yanney Bennett, Serials Librarian

But Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best-laid schemes o mice an men
Gang aft agley,
An lea'e us nought but grief an pain,
For promis'd joy!
