Maggie Mae

Six years ago today, we said goodbye to our Maggie Mae.

I still have not been able to write about this sweet girl, around whom our lives orbited for nearly 15 years.

She was the inspiration and the soul of my hat business. Ever present, all-knowing.

At once Queen and prankster…

The very best nap partner you could ever want…

She was my heart, and she filled our lives with a spirit and personality that was bigger than life.

And she will be with me, for always always…

We miss you, Maggie Mae.

Different Strokes

I named my hat company for the sweetest tabby named Maggie Mae.

She was the Queen. Incredibly self-assured, and I adored her.

When you petted Maggie, a firm pet was better than a soft one most days. I think the softer rubs “tickled” her.

And she always let you know when it was time to stop.

Trust me, she let you know!

When we lost Maggie and Marmee came to us, I had to learn a whole new way of connecting with her.

To my surprise, I discovered that what Marmee loved best were the soft, gentle rubs.

And I mean THE softest rubs, and they never seem to tickle!

And like Maggie before her, she always lets you know when she’s happy.

In my lifetime I have been blessed with two amazing girls.

My Maggie…

And my Marmee…

Each one so unique, her very own fur-person.

I could not possibly love them both more than I do. It’s been a gift to be able to give them whatever they need to be happy.
