I am on the Library Cat Map!

Today I am Proud and Excited to tell you that I have been added to the Library Cat Map! The Library Cat Map is the effort of Gary Roma, who did a video called Puss in Books: Adventures of the Library Cat. This video does not include yours truly, but that is okay, because I was not yet employed (or born) at the time it was filmed.

Anyway, Mr. Gary tries to collect information about Library Cats world-wide, and then he includes locations (and sometimes pictures!) of the Library Cats on his map. Apparently Feline Librarianship is an old profession, because some of these cat stories take place in the 1930s! (Some girl-cats learned that the best way to gain employment in libraries was to sneak in and have a litter of kittens at closing time--although I think the librarians probably knew exactly what was going on.)

If you know any library cats who are not on the map, encourage them to visit the Library Cat Map and contact Mr. Gary so they can be added.

For your viewing pleasure, I am including a picture of me looking Very Tall. This is the picture that is on my new business card. . . I keep meaning to post you pictures of my business cards!

Land, ho!
My Photographer was very pleased with this picture, especially since she had to crawl around on the floor to get it! She thinks I look like an Explorer sighting land or some silly thing.

I put Thorntown on ANOTHER map!

You deserve to be famous Tober. Business cards are a great idea, you should make bookmarks too for all the beans that visit your library.

Cards are meant for chewing ... right ? When you get them, send them to us and we'll put a few bit marks on them ...
