PORSTMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - A black cat that frequently set off alarms and slept on antique quilts at a Portsmouth museum has died.

The Portsmouth Herald (https://bit.ly/1WoVeJG ) reports that John Doe, known as JD, died last week at the age of 13.

His owners say they used to receive letters from Strawbery Banke staffers asking them to control the cat, but they eventually grew to love him. He then became the museum’s mascot, greeting staff and guests.

His owners have received letters, notes and emails from people who have been touched by the cat.

Strawbery Banke officials sent them a letter, too, asking for permission to create a memorial for JD on museum grounds. They thanked the owners for sharing JD and say he connected with tens of thousands of people.
