|I am much friendlier than I look!
I did not belong to the lady. HOWEVER. Lucky for me that neighbor-lady was Karen Niemeyer, and she decided I deserved a second chance. Chance. Get it? She took me to the Thorntown Veterinary Clinic and they fixed me right up, though it did take a while for me to recuperate. You can read the whole story here.
This library is a pretty cool place. My coworkers have told me that I had an awesome predecessor named Tober who kind of led the way for me to become a Library Cat. Of course, you all already know that, since I'm writing on his blog. In fact, Tober was just featured in a book called The True Tails of Baker & Taylor, The Library Cats who Left Their Pawprints on a Small Town. . . and the World. Author Lisa Rogak interviewed Tober last year, and when she asked him if there was anything else he'd like to add, he said "Being a Library Cat is one of the best jobs in the whole world. If you are a cat and you have the opportunity to become a Library Cat, go for it!"
So I did.
The food here is great, the space is fantastic, and I love the abundance of belly rubs administered on a daily basis. Tober had a pretty great gig.
I thought about making a Facebook page, but not everybody has Facebook--and I don't want anyone to miss out on reading about my great new life! Then I thought about making my own blog page--but I think people should also have the opportunity to read about Tober, the Original Thorntown Public Library Cat. He had some fantastic adventures! So I hope no one minds me hanging out here adding to Tober's already awesome collection of blog posts.
Here's another picture of me. I hear you can't have too many cat pictures on the Internets!

PS - Thanks to Tober's friend (and hopefully, now mine) Cauli Le Chat for a warm welcome!
