Definition of Quaiku: a three-line poem about Quigley, usually imagistic, derived from the Japanese tradition of Haiku. The first and third lines have five syllables and the second line has seven. It sometimes rhymes and employs alliteration.

Quaiku No. 1

Quigley is furry
Lounging, licking, scowling, fun
Has own agenda



Quigley and scripture study

July 7, 2007

Quigley is really religious!

Here is where we caught Quigley in a righteous act. He had just had a marathon scripture study session (hence the yawn). In our house, he came to be known for his reverence, especially in later years. He often folded his arms when prayers were being said, and even when nobody was saying a prayer. He was also very contemplative and would often stare into corners of walls, for no apparent reason. He truly was a PIOUS Persian.

Quigley is literateOne day, Quigley found it his duty to place himself in a special chair in the living room. Please note that he is sporting his aero-dynamic shaved look. He loved to read and especially loves stories with a lot of action and magic…like Lord of the Rings.

In a way, Quigley embodied characters in the trilogy. He was like Frodo, Legolas, Galadriel, Sauron and Gollum in one package. Amazing!

Quigley, we will never forget you!

Welcome to the Quigley Memorial Blog.

Quigley is my Persian cat, who passed away last year due to old age. There are few subjects about which my twin brother and I talk more than Quigley. If you knew how many of our conversations were peppered with references to our fiendish feline, you would definitely think we have a problem.

I don’t think we have a problem. We were just very invested in making a Persian cat like us. It took the majority of his lifetime to finally get him to come around to paying any kind of attention to us.

In any case, Quigley’s life-journey is amazing and I want to memorialize him here on this blog.
