I would protest as someone who has become severely allergic to cats as an
adult.  I do love them and used to have one when I was a kid (named Steve),
but simply can't touch or even be near one now.

A trip to will take you to a map.
Click on any state in the map and you'll get a listing of that states
contribution(s) to the 343 Known Library Cats in the US. Most of the
listings include email addresses to contact someone at that particular
library. Write a few and see what comes about.
