The cat ship

Henrietta was a lovely old lady that had a big heart. One day, she found deserted cats on her door step. Her heart filled with compassion for the little creatures that she decided to take them under her care. The word spread around, and pretty soon more cats came to her door step. It was not long, before her home was too small for all the cats, when she decided to buy a boat and turn it into a floating museum for cats. A fun place for cat lovers and for the entire family.
