Dewey The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the WorldDid I do this correctly? I loved this book about this cute cat who IMO suffered from environmental illness. I partly believe this cause he ate rubber bands. If you like cute and heart warming animal stories you will want to read this one.

Reggia | 2251 comments A library cat -- that does sound endearing. I miss having one on my lap while I read, well, at least in the winter. I may have to take a peek at this next time I'm at the library.

Werner | 2101 comments Black Beauty was never required reading when I was in school, but I read it (and liked it) on my own. It's one of the first classics I read as a kid, if not the very first.

I feel sure it was required for me but of course I was delighted. I think that was around the time we could pick a classic to read and our teacher read Tom Sawyer to us.

Lizard becomes father at 111, I got this link here on goodreads:

A captive reptile in New Zealand has unexpectedly become a father at the ripe old age of 111 after receiving treatment for a cancer that made him hostile toward prospective mates.

The centenarian tuatara, named Henry, was thought well past the mating game until he was caught canoodling with a female named Mildred last March -- a consummation that resulted in 11 babies being hatched on Monday.

Tuatara are indigenous New Zealand creatures that resemble lizards but descend from a distinct lineage of reptile that walked the earth with the dinosaurs 225 million years ago, zoologists say.

An endangered species, the hatchlings born at the Southland Museum and Art Gallery will provide a badly needed boost to the tuatara's genetic diversity, said the gallery's tuatara curator, Lindsay Hazley.
