Kitten Overboard

I have a post on Austen Authors today about an 18th Century kitten who fell overboard from one of those great wooden sailing ships. It's an amazing story. Better yet, it's true. And this provides me with an excuse to introduce you to the newest member of the Simonsen household, our cat, Lucy, who showed up at our house every day for a month. Her persistence paid off. I relented and now she runs the house.


  1. Aw, your cat is so cute! Elegant, but cute. Reminds me of our dearly departed kitty.:)

    I am off to checking the post on Austen Authors!ri

  2. What a sweetie! And a lucky kitty too. Thanks for linking my blog to yours and posting all of those lovey comments on my blog. I have linked mine to yours too. A lovely blog you have here!

  3. Hi Irena, Glad you like my kitty, and Hi Jenny, You are welcome. I'm enjoying your blog very much (as I do Irena's, who is an eclectic reader.) :) Mary

  4. Lucy looks very cute. Why did you choose this name? I hope she's not like Lucy Steele. (Just joking!)

  5. Lucy is a beauty!

    So nice meeting you at the ball Lady Mary Elizabeth Lacey.

  6. Thanks to everyone for their commits on my kitty. Next up: my dog. :)

    Hi Fredamans, It was also nice to meet you at the Pemberley Ball. I must tell you that I wore through my dance slippers.

  7. Cute cat!:)

    It was lovely to have seen you at the Pemberley Ball.
