From the beginning to the end… always Momo. Momo was a unique kitty.
Momo was born wearing a tuxedo, raised on San Juan Island, and was lucky enough to be loved by multiple families. Although a little aloof and arrogant some adjectives to describe him would include dapper, confident, and well-dressed.
His first owners, Rina Sue Wilson and Chelsey Tappan gave him his perfect name and were the first people Momo ever let hold him and wear him like a scarf.
After some years Momo had the opportunity to live in town where he had many roommates, kitties and human alike, and was everyone’s favorite laundry-room window napper.
After a few more years, Momo found the family he would spend his remaining years with. Kimmy and Scott Bell welcomed Momo to their home, conveniently located next-door to Duck Soup Inn, which would turn out to be the perfect employment opportunity for Momo.
One random day, Momo walked into Duck Soup like he owned the place … and the restaurant staff believed him.
If you have dined at Duck Soup restaurant within the last 12 years, you have likely been graced with the presence of Momo, or perhaps tried the signature ‘Momo’ cocktail from the menu.
Momo made up his own job at the restaurant, boldly sauntering through customers and tables to rub ankles and greet customers and staff.
The staff of Duck Soup welcomed Momo like it was their idea to hire him and treated him like an essential member of their crew.
The Tappan Wilson Espinoza Bell Duck Soup family will never forget Momo.
We are all so lucky to have had him for 23 years.
He is greatly missed.
