Matt’s Blog – this post is mostly about names of Roman deities suitable for your cat.
The first part is a little history on the status of cats in Ancient Rome which I found fascinating.
I am now considering Libitini – the Roman goddess of funerals for my next cat.
Mrs. Crump’s Cat by Linda Smith and David Roberts (2006).
Mrs. Crump finds a wet cat on her doorstep but the cat manages to make itself at home despite Mrs. Crump’s efforts to rid herself of it. I must note that her efforts to get rid of the cat include buying it cream and a “shiny red pet dish.”
It’s an entertaining short story for grownups but I don’t know that children would relate that much to an lonely, middle-aged woman.
