Horses and Orange Cats and Rats, Oh My!

Today's Folklore Thursday theme is animal folklore. We have written about black cat folklore before and today bring you some snippets about fantastic water horses, seals, orange cats and rats (or, to superstitious sailors, ''the cowld-iron chiel'')

  1. Oh, dear! My daughter and son-in-law are proud "parents" of Apollo and Loki, both orange cats. Apollo, of course, is named for the sun. Loki got his name because when he was a tiny kitten he jumped on the desk, stole my son-in-law's hot dog out of the bun, and ran off. Son-in-law looked at the kitten and declared, "You are called Loki!" Of course, Loki is the Norse god of mischief--among other things. ^_^
