Edinburgh University Issues Library Card To Cat

Cat StoriesEdinburgh, one of Britain’s most prestigious universities, now has a feline officially in residence.  Jordan, a handsome 8 year old tuxedo cat, came into the Catholic friary as a kitten, but never seemed to take to the church life.  Instead, he preferred to travel to the university library to hang out with students and stake his spot in a favorite library chair.

Jordan is quite the big man on campus, with a Facebook page sporting over 6000 likes.  Every day, once he makes his way across campus to the library, he’s treated to petting and pampering by students from around the world.  He’s become such a fixture in the library that the staff awarded him his own library card, even though he’s not required to show it to gain entry to his favorite spot.

University students love having Jordan around, indicating he helps them relax before exams.  Many students say having a cat in residence reminds them of home.

Priests at the friary where Jordan first appeared say the cat usually ignores them, unless it’s mealtime.  He only returns to the friary for a daily main meal.
