Page the Cat #WordlessWednesday

For some reason, cats and libraries seem to go together.   None of our local libraries where I live have a library cat, but I saw my first one the other week in Cazenovia, New York.

The tradition of a library cat goes back centuries, in part because of their mousing abilities.  Or maybe it's because people who love libraries also love cats?

May I introduce you to Page the cat.  Signs at the entrance warn people not to let her out after 7pm.

Page has been with the Cazenovia, New York library since 2009. She is their fourth library cat.

She jumped on a chair and let me pet her for a few seconds.

Here's an article about library cats, if it interests you.

Joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for her #WordlessWednesday.


  1. I would visit a library with kitties for sure. I love loving on kitties.

  4. Oh my. My town needs to get on the bandwagon and get cats for all its library branches.

  5. Clever name ! I love books, and have library science training. I have two cats. However, I much prefer dogs! As for a library cat, I'm surprised it's allowed if it's a public library because of allergies.

  6. Cute kitty. Every library should have a cat- and every book store. :)

  7. I like the name. There are lots of possibilities

  8. It is always lovely to find a cat to talk to.

  9. So nice to see a cat wandering around

  10. Libraries and cats do seem to go together.

  11. So lovely idea! I read also about some stores with cats, for those with no possibilities to have ones. Like a sort of therapy. Andd what an inetersting name, Page! Like in the comment above. A lot of possibilities.
    Happy Today and thank you for this lovely post!❤️😘

  12. Hi Alana - fun to see them ... and yes cats can be major characters in and around places ... cheers Hilary
