Cat island isn't what you think...
How cat island got its name... Cat islands name came from the British sea captain and/or pirate (depending on which side you were on.) His name is Arthur Catt. Hordes of wild cats that the English (us) unleashed in the 1600s. The cats were said to be ancestors of their more tamed cousins that were orphaned by early Spanish colonists in a rush to find gold in South America.
