Cat on the Mayflower?

November 26, 2009

It’s Thanksgiving time and we’re soooo excited because we looovvve turkey. We’ve been very good kitties and feel we deserve some turkey. We actually have been doing some research about cats and Thanksgiving and came across a book, Pilgrim Cat, by Carol Antoinette Peacock, about a cat named Pounce who was on the Mayflower and sailed all across the ocean to America and lived in the colonies at Plymouth.  Wow, what a brave cat. Ships back then were not anything like luxury cruise liners. It was rough.

So, we were thrilled to learn about this book. We told our mommy to go buy it so we could read it before Thanksgiving and write a book review. Well, the human failed. She was lazy…where do humans get this idea to be lazy? She finally called a few bookstores to ask if the book was in stock. No. Nada. Niente. None of our local bookstores had a copy. We have to order it online. What good does that do us if Thanksgiving is already here? Argh! So, we had to settle reading a blog review about the book. You can get a preview at Books For Kids Blog. It looks really good. Maybe we’ll get to read it if the human actually orders it. She better give us some turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Mooshies.
