LYONS, Mich. - Some residents in central Michigan are hoping local officials will allow a cat to stay in the public library.

WOOD-TV reports that the Lyons Township District Library Board of Directors decided last month that the cat would have to leave the Lyons Public Library because some patrons are allergic.

The gray and white cat, known as Aww Kitty, was a stray before she came to the library about 2 ½ years ago. She’s become the library’s unofficial mascot and a sort of therapy cat.

Many local residents told the board Thursday that they want the cat to be allowed to remain in the library.

The board will review the public’s comments and resume discussions about the issue at its next meeting.

Another home for Aww Kitty has already been found.
