Captain Samuel Clough on his Beloved Cat

“My Boate has filled with odd Beasties. Tho the Leathers of his nose make a fine tip for my cue, not even Snooker could tempt me to trim the Snout of such a mouser.” – Captain Samuel Clough on the polydactyl descendants of Marie Antoinette’s Turkish Angora, who roamed his ship for years after the original “Maine Coon” cat disembarked in Wiscasset, ME. (1793)
