Cat adopted by university community dies of cancer

NORTHFIELD — Carleton College in Northfield has lost a beloved celebrity pet.

The Carleton community had adopted Toff the cat, who was elected to the student senate and featured in an alumni magazine and on the college's website.

Rules about animals in buildings at the private college didn't apply to Toff, who would sneak into the dorms for a nap, prowl the library or show up randomly in classrooms. His birthday on April 1 was always celebrated with cake around campus. Toff even had a recommended reading list at the campus bookstore.

News of Toff's death Sunday due to cancer reportedly brought a flood of alumni condolences to the cat's Facebook page.
