Meet Today’s Descendant: Muffin

Salt and Katie, from Salt and the Sea Venture, were some of the first English cats to settle in the New World. If you have a cat, it is probably a descendant of Salt and Katie.

Muffin is today’s descendant.

He has a beautiful coat color that is a mixture of Salt’s pure white, and very faint gray tabby markings.

He was rescued by a lovely woman named Carla Burke from the woods near her home. You can see in this early picture that he was a bit scrawny with a lot of discharge from his eyes. But Carla worked to turn him around.

Looking better already

Look mom, my eyes are all cleared up. I love it here. Thank you for helping me.

Look how shiny and healthy my coat has gotten.

Now I’m what they call, “fat and happy.” What a lucky boy.

Not only is Carla a cat savior, she is also a terrific writer. She has published two books.  “I Spy a Dragon Fly.” winner of the 2011 Christian Literary Award, and “My Name May be Peanuts, but I Say no to PB&J.” This is an important story for kids effected by an allergy to peanuts, and their classmates as well.

Thanks for sharing Muffin with us.


About mgill0627

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!
