'Dewey' Author Adopts New Kitten Named Page
When Selzer offered up the kitten to Myron, she "fell in love instantly." In the spirit of all things book-based, Myron has named the cat Page. "She's a sweet, loving cat, very affectionate, very easy going," she says of Page, who looks very similar to Dewey. "She's definitely a girl but eats like a pig, probably because she was a street cat that probably had to fend for herself."
Myron, who retired as library director last year, had intended to wait a year or two before bringing a new feline into her home because she's been on the road frequently promoting her book. But she says the timing was just right with Page's arrival. "I knew if the right one came along at the right time I'd get one, but I was hoping it would be a couple of years down the road because I'm not around much," she says. "But here she is. We kind of found each other."
Myron's new kitty won't be Dewey's successor at the Spencer library though, the newspaper says. Kay Larson, the library's current director, says the board will discuss getting a new cat at its Jan. 8 meeting.
