Dapper bow tie-wearing cat promoted from pet to assistant librarian

When Kuzya the street cat wandered into a library in Novorossiysk, Russia, staff were so impressed that they recruited him as their pet.

They secured a "cat passport" that allowed Kuzya to be kept in a public space, as well as giving him an ID chip and a rabies vaccination.

Kuzya did such a good job attracting interest to the library that the branch saw a significant increase in patronage. It turned out that people would come for the cat but stay for the book lending service.

As Kuzya was so successful at boosting the library's visitors he was swiftly promoted to assistant librarian - a position that entitles him to wear a smart bow tie.
