We broke the story of a beloved cat in the Swansea Library yesterday, and now due to severe public outcry(Clearly, we helped in that department).

The man who filed a complaints against Penny The Cat that has lived in the Swansea Public Library for years says he will remove the complaint if the library meets several conditions.

According to ABC 6, Patrick Higgins will terminate his complaint if the library meets the following conditions:

  1. ALLERGY WARNING SIGNS ARE POSTED AT ALL ENTRANCES WARNING PEOPLE WHO COME INTO THE LIBRARY OF THE PRESENCE OF A CAT.  This sign can be as simple as "protected by Penny, Our house cat"
  2. The Swansea Board of Health issue a permit to the Library allowing the cat to remain at the library and certify that in the opinion of the Board of Health, there are no health issues with her living at the library and that the continued presence of the litter box is not a health hazard to anyone who is using or working at the Swansea Public Library.
  3. When Penny dies, she is NOT replaced by another cat.
  4. The Fence blocking the wheelchair entrance to the gazebo in back of the library is removed forthwith.

 

What do you think about his thoughts and possible compromise?

PLUS, who could hate this ball of adorable?
