We tabbies think we’re purrty great, don’t we?
But did you know how special we really are??
You know how we have an “M” on our foreheads?

Did you ever wonder why??

There’s a story that back long time ago the baby Jesus was in the manger crying really loud!  A small cat cuddled up next to Him and purred.  Baby Jesus instantly stopped crying and fell asleep.  Mary was so grateful and she patted the cat on the forehead.  And the initial “M” for her name remained forever as a mark of her thanks to the cat…which became known as a tabby.

Isn’t that a great story?!?
See…we really are special!  Even you, Zoey!!

I already know I’m special!
I don’t need some orange-stripey cat telling me that!!

Now go see a really special House Panther!
It’s time for On The Island With Ernie!!
