A concert to raise money for the Rankine Brown library’s number one resident’s vet bills takes place on Thursday night.
Sandy Rankine, the library’s ginger cat, suffers diabetes and recently had an operation, creating vet bills totalling in the thousands. The CatFest concert, run by VUWSA and library staff, aims to take care of the 15-year-old-ish (around 70 in cat years) cat.
The university also plans to hold a staff raffle, with proceeds going toward Sandy’s bills.
NZPA reported University librarian Sue Roberts said “Many of our alumni will have fond memories of the library cat and I’m sure they would be happy to know that the cat is being well looked after.”
The concert, featuring Kitten Et Me, Gnu, DJ Duckling and Tom Martin, with special guests, takes place from 5pm at on Thursday 4 June at Mount Street Bar.
