A feral tuxedo cat, lovingly referred to as Library Cat or L.C., roamed the Powell Library at UCLA Law school. She would spend her time watching the musical performances in the library’s rotunda and perching herself atop the book stacks in the main library. Vicki Steiner, a reference librarian for the school, adopted the cat after it kept sneaking into the library.

Steiner said it was a 6-week process capturing the cat, involving nightly stake-outs and fiber optic cameras. “She was very elusive,” she added. “She didn’t want to leave her library.”

Steiner, who renamed the cat Midgley after the philosopher Mary Midgley, is an animal lover and a lawyer who represents non-profit animal shelters pro bono. “I try to make a difference for animals who don’t have a voice and can’t speak for themselves on issues that are adverse for their well-being,” she said.

Steiner adopted another campus kitty back in 2007. Midgley is reportedly doing well in her new home, giving loving headbutts of affection to Steiner and the other cats in the house.
