View Full Version : Mayflower Cats?

The Pilgrims leave Plymouth Harbor in England on a ship called the
Mayflower. They seek freedom in America to worship the way they want.
The voyage is difficult, but only one of the 102 passengers dies.

Mayflower Cats

Cats were welcome aboard sailing ships in the 16th century because they
helped control the rodent population and protected finite food
supplies. They were so well known as sea-going voyagers that National
Geographic once reported that "cats, like people, found freedom from
persecution in America. It is believed that they first came over on the
Mayflower, although it may have been earlier - with the Spaniards in
the 16th century. In any event, once here, they thrived."
