I found two interesting things in the (old) University of Birmingham main library.
First I saw TT, all the way from Denver on sabbatical, accompanied by one of his sons, heading into a meeting room.
Second, I spotted the library cat. From a distance, he looked like any other ginger tom. However, on approach I realised that this was no domestic pussy, but a small leopard. At first I was terrified to come face to face with such an animal, but his minder assured me that he was tame. I then spent a happy half hour stroking him in the stacks.
