On this episode of The Apple Seed, we are exploring stories of all kinds that talk about cats. Cats have been around for many, many years, and we all probably have had a cat, or know someone with a cat. As you listen to the stories in today's episode, we hope that they bring back memories for you about cats that you can share with the people you love. Who knows what stories you could unlock from those memories. (4:33) "Why Cats Live with Women" by Charlotte Blake-Alston: In this story, Charlotte Blake-Alston tells a folktale about how cats came to live with humans, and more specifically, women. Folktales are a way we can make sense of the world, no matter how silly they may be. We hope this story reminds you of your own cats, or cats you may know. We're happy to bring you this rhythmic folktale story about cats. (17:06) Radio Family Journal by Sam Payne: Sam shares a memory about his childhood cat named Patches.
