Salt and Katie, from the story Salt and the Sea Venture, were two of the first cats to come to North America. Before Europeans arrived, domestic cats did not live in the western hemisphere. For that matter, neither did rats or mice. But with the arrival of the colonists and their vermin, cats became very valuable.
This is Adelaide.
Adelaide reminds me a lot of Salt and Katie’s daughter, Pepper from Pepper and Pocahontas. Her person is Kathy LaFontaine, from Kenner, Louisiana. Her green eyes are absolutely fabulous.
Do you have a descendant of Salt and Katie? Send me their picture and I’ll feature them on the blog.
