We have a cat who has thumbs also, who goes by the name of Garfield.

He is named Garfield 'cause he looks exactly like the cartoon Garfield and has the appetite like he has. He is a male cat 6 months old green eyes and long haired. On the two front paws he has 6 toes and the back paws are regular sized. Anyways that is all I can say about him. He gets along fine with all other animals like other cats and dogs, 'cause we also have a dog that goes by the name of Missy. We adopted her from a friend cause she was very badly abused, so now she has gained her weight back and she is back too being healthy again. We love them both very much - though I would also let you guys know who is our 6 thumb cat's best friend.

Awww - he sounds like such a cute little cat! And I am not the least bit surprised his best friend is a dog - Polys are such laid back, intelligent personalities when it comes to getting along with other pets. And you sure have a big heart to rescue Missy and take care of her so she can have a good, loving life. I really raise my (proverbial) hat to people who take in abused animals and show them love and let them find trust in people again.

So Garfield is of ginger color then? With green eyes... The perfect combination. Where did he come from?

I also have a long-haired cat, namely a Somali cat called Rolli. I sometimes jokingly call him Garfield too because he sure loves to be around at dinner time! He would eat all the food from the other cats' bowls if we did not stop him. (And yes, then throw it all up because of eating too fast…)

I hope your Garfield will have a long happy life in your family. And it seems to be so - he sure has stolen your heart already.

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his 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 and

On my other website 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 dangerous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions.
