Save Aww Kitty!

This petition had 2,718 supporters


This is “Aww Kitty”. For more than two years she has been the library cat and a community ambassador. She is beloved by hundreds of people and quite a few patrons come in just to see her! Kitty has her very own donation jar to pay for all her vet bills, food, and litter. Over the years she has always been able to get the things she needs from the generous people of Lyons, Muir, and Ionia county alike. One of the issues about keeping Kitty is allergies. The librarians are willing to offer patrons options to put Kitty in another room, to wipe off the counters. If the patron calls beforehand, the book can be checked out before they get there so that the staff could either hand them the book at the counter or at the door so they would not have to have contact with Kitty. They have even offered to buy a furnace filter for Kitty’s allergens. A while back a patron complained about a peanut allergy and asked for the candy that the library sells to be removed. When is was discussed at a meeting the board said it was ok for them to keep selling candy. So what is the difference? Allergies are allergies. Kitty is the star of the Lyons library and the Lyons community. She is a huge boost for the library and has paid for herself and has earned a spot in the Lyons community. So why should she be kicked out of the library? If you support Kitty and wish for her to stay at the library please sign this petition ! Lets save Aww Kitty!

 On January 11th, at 6:30pm at the Lyons Library there will be a board meeting. Come support Kitty!

If you could, comment your support so I may show it at the board meeting!
