Jiggers the Cat

Past patrons of Westlake Porter Public Library may remember the affectionate and playful mascot that took up residence at the library in the autumn of 1981. Jiggers appeared at the door one chilly day and quickly won the hearts of library personnel and patrons. The tabby adopted the building, making it her home. She joined the staff, doing her part to keep the old building free of mice and chipmunks and wandering the stacks at will. Jiggers passed away in 1992 at the age of 21, but she has not been forgotten. Some say that she is still keeping an eye on the place. To be sure, librarians have a history of appreciating pets.
