A quiet, unassuming cat is causing big problems for at least one person in Swansea. “It’s a continuation of the handicapped accessibility platform I started in 2007,” said Patrick Higgins, a Swansea resident. Patrick Higgins says the library needs to make big changes to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act; changes like adding a ramp to the front entrance and taking down a fence in front of the gazebo in back — but removing a cat?” (via WHDH-TV)
