Interactive map of library cats:
http://www.ironfrog.com/catsmap.html

Way back in the day when I was in library school in Ohio, there was a slowly dying tradition in rural libraries of hosting library cats. These were cats that lived full-time in libraries, most public. Well, Gary Roma of Iron Frog Productions has created a worldwide historical archive of library cats and organized them around an interactive map, giving the names, locations, and dates of residents for individual cats. Its a work in progress, so if you know of a cat that isnt mentioned, be sure to let him know.

6. The nursing home I worked at had a couple of resident cats.
Those kitties had it made! All that love from all those people and there is always someone to snuggle with when they nap.
