Cat Library In New Mexico Government Building Helps Orphaned Felines Find Forever Homes

A "Cat Library" at the Doña Ana County in Las Cruces, New Mexico is helping felines from a local shelter find forever homes.

A few cats in need of "special attention" are brought to a room in the government building formally known as the "Kitty Kondo."

Tiffany Tillison, a government employee, told BuzzFeed that her co-workers prefer to call it a "Cat Library" because you can borrow them and bring them into their offices for a little while to hang out. 

Tillison's cat, as well as about 100 others, were adopted through the "Cat Library," reported BuzzFeed.

"Most animal shelters are out of the way outside of towns (usually outside the city limits), so you have to really be thinking of adopting an animal to take the trouble to go over there," Tillison told BuzzFeed. "But with this program, hundreds of people come through our lobby every day, so they can't miss seeing them!"

The cats from the "Cat Library" cost on $50 to adopt, which includes the cost of having the cat spayed/neutered, appropriate vaccinations, rabies, microchip, heart worm test and feline leukemia, according to the government's Instagram.
