After one man threatened legal action over a cat's residence at Massachusetts' Swansea Public Library -over two THOUSAND people signed a petition to keep the kitty there.
The outpour of support has prompted the man to drop the lawsuit as long as there are signs that warn people there is a cat on the premise.
Here's what the cat hater said:
“The cat has gone all over the world. You’ve got the petition with over 2,000 people over a freaking cat. We’ve got pictures of the cat on Facebook laying on top of a laptop and they think this is ok. I just don’t understand it."
That may be, but people love cats.
So if you're allergic, take some Claritin, but don't make the cat leave the library!
Where is it gonna go???

No, this isn't some kind of political joke.
He might not look like the most prized pet but this lovable Iraqi donkey won the hearts of so many soldiers, one retired Marine spent months and thousands of dollars organising for 'Smoke' to head to America.
It cost $40,000 and required countless bureaucratic obstacles, but thanks to the hard work of now-retired Marine Col. John Folsom, the brown-eyed donkey is heading to Nebraska.
The donkey became a mascot for a group of Marines in Iraq's Anbar nearly three years ago when he wandered into a former Iraqi air base occupied by American troops.
Marines took care of him until 2009 when they left the area, but they turned Smoke over to a sheik who promised to care for him.
Folsom used to walk Smoke daily and had formed a bond with the animal. It didn't seem right that Smoke was left behind.
Folsom saw the donkey for the first time in years Saturday when he arrived in New York to transport him to his new home in Omaha. By Saturday afternoon they had driven through Baltimore and were on their way to Warrenton, Va., for meet-and-greet with some fans.

The University of Georgia's mascot, UGA VIII, died on Friday morning after suffering from lymphoma.
The white English bulldog, who took over mascot responsibilities in October, was diagnosed with lymphoma in early January, but the school said he had been responding well to treatment.
Russ, a bulldog who filled in as mascot in 2009 and early in 2010, will again step in as the school's mascot.
R.I.P. UGA VIII, you will be missed by the University of Georgia community!
