Meet Max the Cat: He’s banned from the uni library but that doesn’t stop him venturing in

A cat with a penchant for books has gone viral after a sign designed to keep him out of his local library was shared on Twitter. Max the cat lives near Macalester College in Minnesota and loves to venture from home, meeting students and locals along the way. Unfortunately, he keeps returning to one place he isn’t welcome: the library. His owner, nurse and health coach Connie Lipton, says Max is a pretty sociable cat, and does not just stick to the library to find new friends. She said: “We started letting him out last May and soon after started receiving calls asking if it was OK that he was out. “We would regularly get calls so we knew some of what he was up to. He loves the students and would go over there to see them. “He would also visit the students in the French, German and Russian language houses.” So why isn’t he allowed in the library? Well, it’s for a good reason. “Someone who works there is highly allergic to cats and they were also afraid he would be stuck inside and not be able to get out,” said Connie. That sounds reasonable enough and, to stop students and staff aiding and abetting the feline, they put up a sign.
