NAPPANEE -

A special night for a local town, as a well-known city hall icon is retiring.

CC the Nappanee Cat is calling it a career.

The cat has lived at city hall for about 14 years after the police chief found him wandering the streets during a snow storm.

She's like any cat, walking around, getting treats, and taking naps. And city hall employees will miss her.

She's just like any other employee.  People come in and ask for her all the time.  Just kind of a staple here.  So yeah, it's going to be hard," says Nappanee Deputy Clerk Treasurer Lori Stewart.

Mayor Larry Thompson says the cat has to go to the vet, but could soon live at the Elder House, which is a retirement home for people.

He says it wasn't unusual for CC to attend city council meetings and even walk across the desk during the meeting, surprising new visitors
