Edinburgh: Library Cat

Jordan the cat, who has turned his back on his Catholic friar owners and adopted Edinburgh University library as his main residence.

The feline has his own Facebook page set up by students with 6,100 ‘likes’. Now the black and white pet has been given a card for the library, complete with a photo and 2017 expiry date.

The eight-year-old came to the Catholic chaplaincy as a kitten but never took to life as a mouse catcher with men of the cloth. Despite being named after a 12th Century Saint, Jordan preferred the company of trendy young students – and an easy life in the well-heated library.
