I love Tabbies. There's an old fable about that "M" mark on their foreheads…Baby Jesus was having a hard time settling down one time and wouldn't stop crying. A Tabby cat jumped into the manger with Him and purred Him to sleep. Mary was so grateful to the cat for helping her she placed her mark on its forehead forever and for all its descendants to wear.
My stepmom had a huge orange Tabby named Goldie when I was a punk kid that she had tamed down from having been feral. He was a pretty cool dude.
What a great story, i had never noticed the M's on their heads before. Thanks for telling me Belinda.
Tom is poorly again and not eating, this is the second time he's been ill since the vet removed hid broken tooth. It looks to me like there is some infection in the gum so probs off to the vets again. We will be bankrupt before christmas at this rate
