LIBRARY CAT IS NOT DEAD

Don’t panic


Panic ensued on social media this afternoon as details of Jordan the library cat’s untimely death were passed along.

But we can confirm these rumours are false. A bemused friar told us on the phone: “No, he’s very much still alive, I just checked on him in his bed.”

He then sent us a photo as proof – check out the time on the email.

Rumours snowballed as reports on Twitter suggested he had been involved in a collision with a van and killed, with a funeral date even then being posted.

But the Catholic chaplaincy confirmed Edinburgh Uni’s eight year old icon is alive and well.
