Happy National Cat Day!

Momma saw on the news this morning that it's National Cat Day! We'd like to take today to pay tribute to my sweet kitty sister, Pigeon!


Pigeon was a stray living outside Grandma's house when Momma was in her last year of law school. Momma met her over Christmas Break and had to have her. So my uncle's girlfriend kept her for a few months until Momma was done with school and back here in Texas.


Momma first was going to name her "Lipstick," because she loved the story of the gorilla Koko's kitten and Koko's Lipstick looked a lot like Pigeon. But it didn't stick. She thought next of "Penny," but that didn't stick either. Finally, my uncle kept calling her "pidge" because she sounded like a pigeon cooing when she purred. That was it! Pigeon she became.


Pigeon loves perching on high places more than anything. She spends most of her days hanging out on top of our kitchen cabinets. Momma even put cat beds up there on either end because she's there so much! She'll come down sometimes to investigate or to get some scritchings from Momma or visitors. Every once in a while, she'll come snuggle with ME! We're not exactly BFFs, but we're brother and sister, and that's enough for us.


So happy National Cat Day, Pigeon! Live it up!
