The Pets of History: Ivan

By History Department on March 11, 2019

Meet Ivan Douglas a two month old kitten. He likes flowers, ukuleles, cat food, and of course history and historians! 

Ivan was a rescue by the Norwich SPCA, and was adopted when he was seven weeks old. His favorite cat food is beef Fancy Feast. Pencils, computer cables, and random twigs also seem to be important components of his diet at the moment, until they are confiscated. He also contemplatively chews on his own tail for a minute or two before recalling that he doesn’t like the flavor. Sadly, Ivan is not a candidate for feline Mensa. He’s extremely sweet-natured, with the softest fur, but his is truly the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He is loved just the same.
