IP/IC (N)Ravnklo's Georges, NFO n 09

How could we possibly let Georges go to live somewhere else than where he was born? He has such a sweet, sweet temper, and he has this BIG wonderful body that really amazes me about the NFOs!! He is the father of the G-litter at Kloa1s cattery in Bergen. In 2016 he was neutered.

Georges got his name from the fishing bank where my father used to go fishing when he lived in the USA during the 50s and 60s. Deciding his name inspired us later to go to New York and Massachusettes to visit where my father used to live & work. Getting a cat means one thing leads to another.

Georges Bank is a large elevated area of the sea floor between Cape Cod, Massachusetts (USA), and Cape Sable Island, Nova Scotia (Canada). It separates the Gulf of Maine from the Atlantic Ocean. The origin of its name is obscure. The 1610 Velasco map, prepared for King James I of England, used the name "S. Georges Banck", a common practice when the name of the English patron saint, St. George, was sprinkled around the English-colonized world. By the 1850s, it was known as simply as Georges Bank. (Wikipedia)

This is the fishing bank where my father spent a lot of time when he went sea scallop fishing in the late fifties and the early sixties. I often heard this name mentioned through my childhood.
