The Wythe-Grayson library in Independence lost a real treasure just before Christmas. Purrl the library cat, a most well-known and well-loved feline, passed away Dec. 23, 2014. Purrl was adopted by the library in April 2004.
Many library visitors and regulars donated monies throughout the years to pay for the feline’s needs — food, litter, vets care etc. Thanks go out to all who gave to Purrl’s care, especially the library staff for their day-to-day care and love also Twin Oaks Veterinary Clinic for her healthcare needs.
