In the news - A Cat Called Room 8




In yesterday's Daily News newspaper, Know section page B1, is a wonderful human interest story [cat interest is more accurate] celebrating the 40 year anniversary of the life of a school cat, named Room 8. Click here to read the article online. And the Daily News also features a neat Room 8 related photo gallery to view and has some touching comments about Room 8 by readers.

Lo and behold, the library has the book mentioned in the article, A Cat called Room 8 by Virgina Finley. I've looked the book over and it even has two pages of photographs of Room 8, how cool is that!

After you read the article, I bet someone is going to want to read the book, I know I'll want to at some point!

A wonderful reminder of past, more gentler times.
