Fidel

Fidel, the first British library cat from Deal Library in Kent, U.K.. He is unlike Dewey who was a resident at his library. Fidel is more of a daily visitor who stays in the library while his owner is at work. Fidel enjoys company and finds the library a lot more comfortable than staying at home alone.
