light shines in through the front window of the City South Library in the early evening. in summer, the light casts long boxes over shelves of unsorted books, returned by readers and waiting to be placed back in order.
keen-eyed passers by will notice the silhouette of a feline etched out of the bottom few boxes of light. this is the shadow of a white cat with blue eyes. she is nicknamed Louise. she came to the library on a warm winter morning, the same warm winter morning before The Great Blizzard.
she has lived in the library ever since.
