Today’s descendant is Atlantis.
This gorgeous girl has the perfect name for the descendant of cats who crossed the Atlantic three times in 1609, 1615, and 1616.
Katie was even born in the Atlantic Ocean onboard the Sea Venture.
But more about Atlantis. She currently lives at Wayside Waifs, a no-kill animal shelter near Kansas City, MO. She is a little over 7 years old and looking for a forever family to call her own. She has the personality of a “Private Investigator,” meaning she checks out everything that’s going on in the household and reports back with a big dose of love and affection.
She is also one of the FIV cats at the shelter who is expected to live a long and healthy life with the right companion. She will need to be kept indoors in a single cat household and receive regular health checkups, but besides that, she should live a full life.
Just like all the domestic cats in North America, Atlantis is not an inidgenous animal. Her ancestors were brought here by early settlers going as far back as the Vikings. Cats really started to take hold in this part of the world with the advent of European settlers. Cats like Salt and Katie, from Salt and the Sea Venture, were some of the first cats to find there way to the New World in 1609.
Do you have a cat? If so, it’s probably a descendant of Salt and Katie. If you’d like me to feature your cat on the blog (and plug anything you have going,) reply in the comments, or e-mail me at email@example.com.
Working in a children’s bookstore is a very illucidating side job for a children’t writer. I get to see what is in demand by children and parents alike.
One thing that’s been in hot demand for a while now is Puzzle Games for Kids. Especially dot-to-dot, word search, and hidden image games.
Since road-trip season is really getting into full swing here in the US, it’s a great time to sell games that get kids off the devices and give them a chance to have fun at the same time. Plus, there’s that hidden learning factor that goes along with all these type of games.
So if you have any puzzle games to sell, now is the perfect time to promote them.
