Donington, UK. ‘Trim’ – the cat of Matthew Flinders (one of the most successful navigators and cartographers of nineteenth century). Trim was born in 1799 and as a kitten fell overboard aboard HMS Reliance on a voyage from the Cape of Good Hope to Botany Bay, Sydney. The little kitten however braved the sea and managed to swim back and climb aboard the ship by scaling a rope. Flinders was very impressed by kitten’s strong survival instinct and intelligence and made him his pet.
Thereafter Trim always accompanied Flinders in all his voyages around the World including circumnavigation of the Australian mainland and also survived the shipwreck of the HMS Porpoise on Wreck Reef in 1803. Trim traveled with Flinders, when after the wreck, Flinders (who was then a passenger on Porpoise) and other crewmen of Porpoise took a cutter and headed to Sydney to seek rescue. Through marvelous navigation they made the 800 mile voyage to Port Jackson in about 2 weeks and the navy was able to send rescue ships.
Another monument to Trim the cat is situated in Sydney, Australia. Small bronze statue of Trim the cat, it’s right paw raised and its head looking in the direction of the its beloved master Matthew Flinders Statue. Fittingly, Trim, the ever the faithful companion, permanently watches the back of his master.
