Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World

Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World tells the story of Dewey from kittenhood to cathood. And what a story it is. In 1988, the kitten was abandoned in a Spencer, IA, library in their book-return box (!). He was then adopted by librarians and named after the Dewey decimal system by townsfolk in a naming contest. This furry little book worm slept in the stacks, hung out with patrons, and generally added some awesome cat ambiance until he went to the big cat library in the sky in 2006. His remains are buried near the library front door, and now there's a book about him — a book I can't wait to get my paws on.

I just finished reading this book, and its just really beautiful. Such a heartwarming kitty, but a sad ending. Rest in peace, Dewey.
