Hi Titanica

You are correct my friend and as long as no one minds we can do it, I think :-)

I was just doing this because I was asked to, on another forum, and saw no harm in posting on both, but sure, sounds good to me.

Oh, and today the ship's cat, who had had a litter of kittens in Belfast, was seen taking them one by one off the ship - something that was taken by many sailors to be a very bad omen.

If this cat story was true, then animals could not only sense natural disasters but also man made ones emoticon

HI TTF

I hope you carry on with this thread it is good and all I meant was it is a great addition to Wills work.

I am also a bit sceptical about the cat, Not that I do not believe the animal does not have inner sences we do not understand as I do have my own beliefes on that matter but it is said Tityanic did not have a ship cat, Unusuall in its days though that in itsellf, Cats where on board for the controlle of vermin. But as Titanic was a ne ship not many rats where aboard

Aha! There you go - the cat left because she knew there wasn't enough food for her kittens! Mystery solved -

Re: Countdown


speaking of the cat....
here is something i think you all might like.

        titanicat:
when men go down to the sea in ships,
as they do ,to this very day,they carry along a goodship's cat,
to keep the rats at bay.

one such cat, at the belfast yard,
had kittens while on board.
the date was april 1912,
ANNO DOMINI,year of our lord.

now the ship was new ,and the crew was, too.
so a trial run was deemed fair.
and the scullion lad, whose name was jim,
wound up with the tabby's care.

in the f deck galley jim scoured and scrubbed, his job now was to bow and bend,
but he saved the scraps from everymeal
for the cat that he now called a friend.

they circled the coast 'till thier anchor dropped
at the port of the white star line,
where the ship was loaded with lobster and steak.
and silver and crystaland wine.

the cat seemed troubled from when the trials were done ,
though she loved her life on the ship,
with kittens in tow she disembarked
refusing to make this trip.

she carried her babies, one by one ,
down the gangplank to the quay,
two thousand passengers clammered aboard but the cat went the other way.

jim followed his friend and he left that ship
about to sail the atlantic.
he bid farewellto the maiden voyage of the rms titanic.

when jim tells the tale of that wise old cat,
he gets naught but a sneer and a scoff.

over one thousand drowned when the ship went down.
but jim and the cat got off.

down with the ship that fatefull nighht ,
went fathers and sons and wives,
but the cat saved jim by lending him one of her own nine lives.

now you know the story of the titanicat.
it is very cute .....
