In the community of Honoraville resides a feline with a penchant for the finer things in life. Named after the patron saint of animals, this feline connoisseur delights in naps on her owner’s lap, head rubs and above all, indulging in her favorite pastime – eating.

St. Francis is 10-months-old and belongs to Rebecca Mosley of Honoraville and according to her owner, this discerning cat has a particular fondness for cheese, elevating her culinary preferences beyond the average feline fare.

The adventurous kitty also enjoys accompanying her owner on leisurely walks, exploring the world beyond the comfort of her home. 

St. Francis’s journey into the Mosley family began when her original owner, who bestowed upon her the saintly name, had to move into a rehabilitation facility. 

Mosley, a devoted crocheter, often finds her crafting pursuits interrupted by St. Francis’s demands for lap time. However, describing her beloved pet as “extremely loving,” St. Francis is always eager to provide comfort and companionship. Whether demanding lap time during crochet sessions or showering affection with gentle nudges, according to her owner, she exudes an aura of love and warmth that is impossible to ignore.
