Patus O'Mallus



A handsome tabby appeared on our deck in the Winter of 2010-11.  He ran off when I appeared, but he was easily trapped March 20, 2011.  The hubby called him Tiger, but I knew this cat needed a name that suited his personality.  This cat, with his emerald green eyes, and his charming ways (he soon stopped avoiding me and began rubbing on my ankles), made me think he'd kissed the Blarney Stone*.  I thought up 'Patrick O'Malley', and shortened it to Patty.  The hubby and I often try to make it sound Latin with Patus O'Mallus, which is complete gibberish, but it suits him perfectly! 

So I wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day, as we all wait for a bit o' green to show up in our gardens and lawns. 

"May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall softly on your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand."
-Irish Blessing
 
*If someone says you have kissed the Blarney Stone as a turn of phase, they are saying you have the "gift of gab" and/or the ability to flatter.
