Hamish McHamish gets a closer look at his statue in St. Andrews in Scotland.People in the small town of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland, have pulled together to raise $8,000 for a bronze statue of the town's beloved 14-year-old cat. Hamish McHamish belongs to resident Marianne Baird, but since he was about a year old, he's spent his time in various houses, shops and university buildings around the town.
Hamish arrived in a convertible as a crowd gathered to watch the unveiling of his likeness, proudly sitting next to it. The kitty is a local celebrity, with his own Facebook page and Twitter account - and there's even a book written about him. "Our statue is a way of saying thank you to Hamish for being so 'purrfectly' adorable and to celebrate him and the joy he brings us," said Flora Selwyn, a local magazine editor who organized the fundraising for the statue. - Read it at Time
