A Friday Treat


That’s Nyx, the blind library kitty who bestows her charms on the Collection Management staff at Chester County P.L. in Virginia (perhaps a little too much; they had to ban her from a recent meeting and she let them know she was NOT HAPPY). She even has her own Web site; Nyx the Library Cat.

Nyx, as a modern library cat, knows all about merchandising, so when she received some gifts from Macmillan Library Marketing head, Talia Sherer, she got the human librarians to set up a display.

And, yes; even though Nyx is blind, she knows what to do with the ball and mouse.

The books, of course, are pubbed by the Macmillan group:

    Nyx burbles and trills a thank you to Early Word and says meow to Talia.

    Much whacking of both mousie and ball occurs on a daily basis.

    Earlier today she collected and piled all her toys near a sunny spot by an office window.

    She is glad it is Friday and has already packed herself in her cat carrier to head out for the weekend.

    How does Schmackies feel about this other kitty getting all this attention?
