Trim the Cat

Matthew Flinders mapped the coast of Australia in 1802, aboard the ship Tryall, accompanied by his remarkable black and white cat Trim. During the voyage, Trim learnt to swim and catch a rope. His intense interest in watching the officers at their navigation - convinced Flinders that his feline friend was interested in astronomy! Together, they circumnavigated Australia three times and the world once.
