A Cat Called "Room 8"

Room 8

A stray cat wandered into a classroom at Elysian Heights Elementary School in 1952.

After coming back to the classroom several mornings in a row, the children decided to name him after the number of their room -- "Room 8." 

He was loved and cared for by the students. When "Room 8" came back to school after each summer vacation, he suddenly became famous. 

Newspapers sent reporters and photographers to the school.  Television stations told the story of "Room 8."

 

 

    

He was featured in Look Magazine, Cats magazine, and the Weekly Reader.  His picture was taken every year with the 6th grade graduating class. 

"Room 8" never missed a day of school in 16 years until his death in 1968.  His estimated age was 22 years. He is buried under a beautiful headstone in the Los Angeles Pet Memorial Park in Calabasas, California.

A book entitled A Cat Called Room 8 was written about him in 1966 by Virginia Finley and Beverly Mason (New York: Putnam, c1966).  It is available at several libraries:  Burbank Library (one copy at the Central Library and Buena Vista branch in the 'Juvenile Grade 3 and 4 Books' section), Glendale Library (in Special Collections, Call No. 636.88 F), and Los Angeles Library (in the Children's Lit. Dept.; 3 reference copies, 1 copy available for check-out).

Read more about "Room 8"...

Useful post thanks. I'm definitely guilty of signing off posts with a conclusion that doesn't open up the post for debate, which is often something I'd be interested in.

 You are, but coming off too strong, in my opinion. Questions that are too direct or blunt tend to turn off readers, so it's a question of finding that subtle, compelling question. I'd also suggest not adding the "leave a comment," because that kind of shuts things down before it gets started. Try different combos and find the fit that works

<b>О Компании Grid Group:</b>

Идея создания платформы Grid Group появилась на основе существующей проблемы на рынке недвижимости – это высокий порог входа. Зарабатывать, инвестируя в недвижимость частному инвестору удавалось лишь в случае наличия крупных сумм, помимо прочего, чтобы выработать безубыточную стратегию инвестирования в недвижимость в долгосрочной перспективе инвестору необходимо владеть определенными навыками и информацией, уметь правильно отбирать перспективный регион, надежный и ликвидный объект недвижимости - то есть провести качественный аудит, все это создает препятствия для выхода частных инвестиций на глобальный рынок недвижимости

Наше решение - понижение порога минимальной инвестиции со стоимости объекта недвижимости до стоимости одного квадратного метра, дающее возможность участия малому частному капиталу и придание ценности цифровому активу (токену) обеспеченному реальной недвижимостью по всему миру. Инвестируйте и получайте доход используя новые возможности. <a href=https://www.gridgroup.site/><b>Подробнее на сайте</b></a>
