Hilda’s Feast Day

St. Hilda’s Feast Day was Sunday, November 17, 2013.

We celebrated this auspicious day in our home with Hilda, our cat feasting on treats. Yes, one of my two Maine Coon cats is 2 years old and she is named “St. Hilda of Whitby of Nascat Maine Coons” (we call her simply “Hilda” or as she most likely knows herself as “Get Down Hilda”-as she can’t stay off the kitchen island).

I can only hope that the original St. Hilda doesn’t mind that a beautiful Maine Coon who walks on a leash and has a bit of a ‘tude is named for her.
