Interplex: Our Cattery, The Allpurrs logo and where it came from

Our logo came about some 75 years ago and from a book, Chessie the Railroad Cat, one of my early favorites and sort of proof that the love of cats goes back to my very early years.

A drawing in the book closely resembles a picture I took of a kitten sleeping in my bed one night as I prepared to retire. The Nikon was
handy and this is the result.


The story is based upon a stow away kitten on a passenger train of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. That line adapted the drawing to be their logo and even painted their locomotives with the image.
