Decked out in a vintage diving suit, Sheba the cat is hauled from the seabed on a casket full of treasure but seems to have little interest in anything other than the fish in hand! 'Nuestra Senora de Atocha' carved on the chest is a reference to the largest and richest treasure to be found in history.'Nuestra Senora de Atocha' foundered in a hurricane 40 miles off the Florida Keys after leaving Cuba in 1622, hence 'Captain's log 1622' . Sheba has found a sack full of emeralds - part of the huge treasure cargo 'Nuestra' was carrying when she went down. "IOU £5.00" is carved in to the side of the chest. Rumour has it that Lorne and Adam had some sort of a bet, but what the bet was for and who won it, remains a mystery. Inside, Sheba is writing to Lorne Spicer, who regularly appears on the UK 'This Morning' and 'Find a Fortune' TV shows.
