The Shrimp was Nan's cat and lived along with the Blythe family in Ingleside, Glen St. Mary.


Gilbert Blythe named him the Shrimp after his daughter Nan brought the miserable, scrawny kitten home from the village where some boys had been torturing it. The name clung, though it was very inappropriate when the cat grew older.

Behind the scenesEdit

In the German version, the cat's name is Krabbe.
