Copycat in Good Company: Stacks, Litchfield Public Library (Illinois)
This month, we’re celebrating the release of David Yow’s Copycat: And a Litter of Other Cats by featuring some of our favorite library and record store cats from around the world. Today, meet Stacks, the “queen” of Litchfield Public Library in Illinois.
Stacks arrived at the library in March of 2009. She was adopted from Adopt-A-Pet, a no-kill shelter in Benld, Illinois. She was found wandering the streets of Gillespie, Illinois, during an ice storm in late February.
About a year old when adopted, Stacks has been here a long while and has become quite accustomed to her life here at the library. She sleeps on the circ desk, making us “work around” her napping body, spread across the desk. She attends library board of trustee meetings, usually sitting in a board member’s lap until she abandons the boring meeting for more exciting opportunities.
She has the run of the place, and she likes to ride the elevator with patrons. Sometimes she will stay on the elevator for half the day, riding up and down, sleeping in the corner between rides.
Stacks was featured in the February 2010 issue of Cat Fancy magazine as one of fourteen literary cats. Alas, she cannot read . . . but she does like to watch those who come into the library!
