Trim, the Explorer Cat who sailed with Matthew Flinders

Today commemorates the 215th anniversary of the arrival of the explorer cat Trim with his human, Matthew Flinders, at Port Lincoln in South Australia.
A special statue of Trim and Flinders will be unveiled today at Port Lincoln by the Governor of South Australia Hieu Van Le.
Lynettea says she will find something more about this for me to add.
Trim was the first cat to circumnavigate Australia and there is a book written about him by Matthew Flinders, his faithful human, who looked after Trim while he carried out his important tasks. We have a copy.
