It‟s a play on words - “Ühl” in old Germanmeans “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 theoriginal Owl‟s Ledge in old copies of Cat Fancy and Cat Fancier magazines – includingone 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 tookinspiration from her mother‟s battered business card, which she carried in her walletsince her mother passed away from cancer in the late 1970s.Since then, Owl‟s Ledge has continued to attract members of the Uhl family, includingTrish‟s brother, Jason. Jason - a teenager at the time- wrote the first Owl‟s Ledgeslogan – “Owl‟s Ledge: We‟ll take you from computer stumped to computer savvy!”He‟s been Trish‟s Chief Marketing Officer ever since. Owl’s Ledge - Today?
