The Adventures of Sailor Sam

The Adventures of Sailor Sam tells the story of a farm cat who is forced to leave home after a misunderstanding. A ships captain takes pity on him and he begins a new life on board as Sailor Sam. Some of the sailors do not understand that cats are mainly nocturnal and soon begin to complain that Sam is lazy. To prove them wrong, he decides to steer the ship at night to speed them to their destination. Alas, cats are not known for their map-reading skills and his actions have humorous and unexpected consequences. Where will the ship end up and will Sailor Sam be forgiven?I am donating proceeds from this book to the Riverhaven Elderly Cat Welfare shelter in Devon, UK, which cares for abandoned elderly and disabled cats for the rest of their natural lives.
