Lexi is a true tabby. This is evident by the “M” on her forehead. According to an Italian legend this is because when Christ was born no person or beast could make him fall asleep. That was until a tabby cat jumped into the manger and started to purr. The purring worked and the Infant fell asleep. In appreciation, Mary gave a soft pat on the tabby’s forehead. Where Mary’s fingers touched the tabby’s forehead it created the “M” marking as a sign of her eternal gratitude (Why Do Cats?).
