Hello! Cosmo the Library Cat here. Evening at the Grand County Public Library is often very peaceful. It’s the perfect time for the librarians to play “snake” with me. This is a game where I can apply my fearsome hunting skills. Here’s how it works: the human drags my colorful snake toy along the ground in a sinuous movement. If they do it right (I’ve got most of them trained by now), I can pretend I’m stalking the dreaded rainbow viper. I sneak around amongst the bookshelves, all stealthy and silent, lulling the snake into complacency. When the moment is right, I leap upon it fearlessly and hold that wicked serpent down with my paws. Clamping it firmly in my mighty jaws, I drag it down the aisle, howling a little victory song as I go. When the snake stops resisting, I drop it and then lie down next to it so everyone can admire my bravery. That’s right, folks, I have saved the library from this deadly beast, once again. You’re welcome!
After a few more trips outside, the librarians remind me that it’s closing time soon. I usually choose to sleep indoors, where I can keep an eye on those wily books. (They like to shift into absurdly hard-to-find places when they think no one is watching.) I love my life with all the nice people at Grand County Public Library. I certainly chose well when I insisted on moving in. But that’s a story for another day. See you at the library!
