Carnegie, once an official employee of the city of Rochester, charged with keeping the mouse and bat population of the Rochester Public Library under control, died last week.
Library secretary Gail Pearson remembered him fondly, “from falling asleep in a patron’s brief case, to lying head to head with a small child on the floor, with the pair gazing into each others’ eyes. Pearson also recalls a regular patron with an ample bosom, who would read for a while and then fall back asleep, providing Carnegie with a comfortable location on which to nap also.”
A cat who loved books AND ample bosoms. May he get his heart’s fill of both in kitty heaven.
