Today is the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi. I don't much about saints other than Santa Claus. Well, I do know that Saint Francis is the patron saint of animals. This kitty seems to know it too.

Cat with Saint Francis

What I do know is cats and I would swear this one is purring in his ear. Possibly licking his ear too. It's the way cats give blessings. I swear that on my often damp ears.

Happy Saint Francis of Assisi Day!
