"Boots"

by jean

Boots came to us as a stray, out in the cold and had been harmed by someone sticking a needle or nail through his right front paw. Enough of that, he is indoors all the time.

His nature is so sweet, playful, kind. Loves to be around us but still a little skiddish due to his past treatment. Like to say we have another stray cat who came to us with the same wound, he too is indoors.

Boots has adapted pretty well considering that he no longer go outside, can't take the chance.

He appears to do well with his extra toes, front and back, no different. Still has nails in those paws, but does not use them to hurt.

We are happy to know there is a term for his structure, we love him and that is it.

Heartwarming...

It is so wonderful to read how people actually care about the stray cats out there. And also just as sad to read how these cats are treated so cruelly, if they don't find a home of their own.

I am so happy to hear Boots and the other cat have a good, safe home with you now.

Our cats are also indoor cats - we live in a city and I could not let them go out where there are cars, foxes, and inconsiderate people. They have no trouble being indoor cats only, at least they show no signs of stress over this.

I hope you shall have your cats as family member for a long time to come.

Tutankhamun

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh -exhibition on its world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

On my other website www.ancientagypt101.com he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and hazardous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions.
