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.
