A Cat Made for a Library and a Library Made for a Cat

Up in Northfield MN, home of Carleton College (my son's alma mater), the students, staff and faculty are mourning the passing of a campus favorite, Toff the cat.

A lovely obit and tribute to his fourteen years is found in Book Tryst.

Toff's late-night study habits resulted in a run-in with campus security on at least one occasion. According to the campus crime blotter, officers responded to a motion detector alarm tripped at the school's library around 3 a.m. The commander's official report outlines the cold, hard facts,"I began a search of the Libe only to locate the suspect on the second floor. Looking into the uncaring, unfeeling eyes of the suspect, I realized that Toff really has an attitude towards Security."
