The Royal Couple Sparks Dexter's Curiosity

      Everyone’s talking about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and there are lots of people who look up their ancestors and where they came from.  I’m wondering where I came from too so, after Neil left the computer on the web, I tapped a few keys and found fancyfelinesfoundations.  I was sure that I must be from royalty because, if you look far enough, you can always find some type of royal connection.  

      I always suspected that my ancestors might have lived on a boat because I like looking at water and I like drinking it as long as I don’t have to get in it.  I even thought it could have been a royal barge.  My coat blends in many places and I bet my ancestors blended in with silks and satins and golden thread.  After tapping more keys, I found out that I was right!  Well, not exactly, but I was on a similar kind of path.  My great-great-great-times about eight – grandfather earned his way over to America.  He worked on a ship carrying immigrants.  He had to hunt for the furry tailed things to protect everyone’s food supply.  One of the immigrants hid him in his coat when he went through Ellis Island.  He didn’t sign his name, but he did peak out of the immigrant’s pocket and I saw the picture.  He may not have been royal, but he was pretty heroic!

For Dexter:

The Humans snore now
Every room is dark and cold
Time for "Cup Hockey"!

I wonder how many pets were smuggled past Ellis, Dexter! Great post and it's so nice meeting you!

It's a pleasure to meet you too! I don't have an answer for your question. It would take a lot of research. Maybe a student could write a big paper about it.
