Billy & Elijah
The blue cat used for the Blue Cat PIES logo is named “Billy” and was created by Elijah, a boy with Asperger’s Syndrome. Elijah is an active child who has a love for drawing. Elijah has been a participant of Any Baby Can’s Saturday morning art class where he has been able to express his many artistic talents. One talent was the drawing of the blue cat that we have taken on as our logo for our interactive teaching products of Blue Cat PIES.
