Mews and Nips: Meet Max, the Aspiring Library Cat


A St. Paul, MN rescue cat who lives across from a small college loves to roam the campus, making friends as he goes. Max was particularly interested in the library, but was not allowed inside because one employee is very allergic to cats, and others worried that he might get locked in. The sign posted at the library denying Max access went viral, generating all sorts of literary and feline puns. Someone even made him a library card. Visit the Washington Post for more on Max – this story is sure to make you smile – or visit Max on Instagram.
