The Owl's Ledge Story - Where Does the Name Come From?
"Owl's Ledge" is an homage to the Ühl family; as the name was originally coined by Trish's mother -- Karen -- back in the 1970s. It's a play on words - "Ühl" in old German means "wise, old owl."
Karen used the name for her own company -- a cattery (yes, cattery) -- where she bred, raised, and showed Siamese cats. Matter of fact, you can find ads and listings for the original Owl's Ledge in old copies of Cat Fancy and Cat Fancier magazines -- including one featuring Trish's first cat , Namtaal.
Tom, Trish's dad, is the artist who created the familiar owl logo. He drew it for his wife.
So, in 2003, when Trish was considering names for her new consulting firm, she took inspiration from her mother's battered business card, which she carried in her wallet since her mother passed away from cancer in the late 1970s.
Since then, Owl's Ledge has continued to attract members of the Ühl family, including Trish's brother, Jason. Jason - a teenager at the time- wrote the first Owl's Ledge slogan -- "Owl's Ledge: We'll take you from computer stumped to computer savvy!" He's been Trish's Chief Marketing Officer ever since.
