Dewey the Library Cat :: Book Review

You’ve probably heard of an alley cat, a Persian cat and maybe even a Chinese hairless cat – but have you ever in your life heard of a Library Cat? Meet Dewey – the real-life library cat who made a very big impression on the members of his small town library – and left a very big hole in their hearts when he passed away after almost 20 years at the library.


Drop-box Dewey

On the morning of the one of the coldest days of the year, Spencer, Iowa librarian Vicki Myron found a tiny orange kitten nearly frozen to death in the library’s book drop. She saved the kitten’s life and named him Dewey Readmore Books. Little did Vicki know Dewey would go on to become one of the town’s most popular and famous residents ever!


Dewey’s Digs

After Vicki decided that Dewey’s home would be [kwlink 16139 ]the library[/kwlink], the residents of the town of Spencer got to know him – and his crazy antics – pretty well. Dewey loved to play with his ball of red yarn, sleep in the smallest of boxes and hitch rides on the library’s book cart. But what Dewey loved most was people, and whenever someone needed him, Dewey always seemed to be there.


Dewey Mania

Once the word started to spread about the library’s special cat, people couldn’t seem to get enough of Dewey. He appeared in tons of papers, as well as TV shows and [kwlink 20155 ]documentary[/kwlink] films. And now he has his own book for kids - Dewey the Library Cat - so that children all over the world can learn more about this special cat.


Dewey Dies

We’re not giving much away by telling you that [kwlink 17896 ]Dewey does die[/kwlink] at the end of the book (the good parts about his life and friends are all in the middle). After all, cats only live so long and Dewey actually had a particularly long and healthy (not to mention extraordinary!) life. He lived to be almost 20 years old. After he died, Vicki didn’t think she would ever replace her dear library cat – but then she met another kitten in distress that just seemed to fit the role as Dewey’s successor purr-fectly! Dewey, however, will always be remembered – he’s even been honored in the town monument!

On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.  ^^This There are so many variables, it's hard to make sure polygraphs are working to model standards.

wow this topic is rarely spoken, thanks for sharing it!! [s:p/zxl] 8) 8) Thank you for reading! I think as days go by it gets more and more talked about, but I don't think there can ever be enough said, especially about positive strategies. It seems like we tend to dwell on the worst and not the solution sometimes. Not to mention I don't think there's anything inherently bad about these things.

Ok so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now Thank you so much for sharing? You're really brave to talk about that, and I know that sharing your story is going to help somebody else. Thank you. :)
