Miller, the Adam Smith Cat

Miller, the Adam Smith Building Cat

The above cat is not just any random cat, wondering around the university campus. No, this cat is a minor celebrity at Glasgow University, having even spurned his own appreciation group on Facebook AND his own LOLCat!

Miller is commonly known as the Adam Smith Cat (or the Adam Smith Building Cat, depending on who you ask), as he is most often seen hanging within the vicinity of the Adam Smith Building, or inside the building warming up next to the radiators. During the colder months he has been spotted (and photographed) sitting on the hoods of cars in the morning, next to the radiators in the stairwell of the Adam Smith Building, and wondering around the halls of the building, walking into tutorials and the offices.

During the warmer month(s), Miller can be found wondering around the campus, but remaining close to the Adam Smith Building and the Library, which is where he is enjoying a warm April day.

You could go as far as saying that Miller is the unofficial mascot of the Law, Business and Social Studies (LBSS) Faculty, as the Adam Smith Building contains most of the Social Sciences Departments. If you’re ever close to the Adam Smith Building and see a familiar looking cat walking around or sitting next to a radiator, don’t be afraid to pet Miller and say hi. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it.

Credit for this photo goes to my girlfriend Nora, who has spend a lot of time and adjusted some of her walking routes around campus in an effort to possibly run into Miller as often as possible.

    Thanks for the recognition. My cat is famous!! Miller is 17 years old ive had him since he was 7 weeks old. He has a sister cassie and has lived on hillhead street all his life.
    He has been photographed by hundreds of people. He doesn’t like being picked up or petted. And is fed by far too many people!! Hence his large size!! It’s winter so he’s at home curled up on front of the fire.
