We received the sad news today that Pat the Cat has died. Of all the characters in any of SHARP’s We Love to Learn books, Pat the Cat was probably the most well-known. We seemed to have a special fondness for Pat, who overcame the odds and survived, ultimately finding a home at the Milwaukee County Zoo. In a way, his story was symbolic for the many people of our country’s past who immigrated here, and often faced unlikely odds themselves, but made a new home in the United States. We will fondly remember the inspiring story of Pat the Cat.
