“A Kind Lady Lives Here”

Standard

My sister Susan gave me this cat pin several years ago. She said it reminded her of the simple drawings she’d heard about that people left on their gates during the Depression to let the homeless know they could come to their door for food. I loved that story, but I’d never read anything about it until I saw a recent Etsy blog post¬†called “The Secret Symbols of Travelers and Thieves.” ¬†Interesting!
