Today’s Descendant: Mitchell Lafayette


Not only is Mitchell a descendant of Salt and Katie, he was also the inspiration for Toady, from Salt and the Sea Venture, and Pepper and Pocahontas.

I rescued him from a shelter when he was eight weeks old. He only weighed 2 lbs, about 1/3 the size of my female cats, but he had so much swag. They just bowed down to him from the first time they saw him. I guess I did too. By the time he was full grown, he weighed 25 pounds. Although I still contend he is big-boned, I put him on a diet. Now he’s too skinny.

Have you ever had a “big-boned” cat? What, if anything do you do to control their weight?

I've always been a story teller. This made for some interesting missing homework and late for curfew tales. But I've never had a head for the pedantic rules of grammar and spelling. This made for some interesting comma placement and spelling choices. About ten years ago I decided to figure out how to share my stories, in spite of my shortcomings. I'm lucky to have great colleagues who can help me with the fine details. My favorite class in school was American History. The Colonial Cat's series gives me a chance to write about the great history of the United States and cats!
