This Week’s Descendant

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 Charmaine Meow

Isn’t he a beautiful boy. He looks very much like Salt and Katie’s son, Morton, from Morton and the Mayflower, (to be published in early 2015).

He currently lives at Wayside Waifs and is available for adoption.

Do you have a descendant of Salt and Katie? If so, send me a picture and I’ll feature them on the blog, or include them in the next Colonial Cats book.

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!
