Tornado kitten tale

Hear the tale of “Toto the Tornado Kitten” at the Shrewsbury Public Library on Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m., and meet Toto. When a June 2011 tornado struck Western Massachusetts, a tree worker found a 2- or 3-week-old kitten in Brimfield and took it to the fire station where Jonathan Hall was on duty. Hall and other rescue officials cared for the cold, hungry kitten before handing it over to workers with the Animal Rescue League of Boston, there to help following the tornado. Hall and his wife, Amy, later adopted the kitten. Toto’s story inspired Hall to write a children’s book, with all proceeds from book sales going to animal rescue groups. The event will be held in the library’s large meeting room.
