Black cat appreciation day

Untitled_003

Some people don’t like black cats,  but I do. I had two of them over the last few years. A female who was very sweet and tiny, and a big male who would sit and guard the cat flap at night.

My only worry with black cats is that they are difficult to see at night so I always put reflective collars on them. That goes for black and white cats to as they tend to have black bodies and the white parts are underneath or on their legs.

Black cats are supposed to be lucky in the UK where in other parts of the world they are meant to be unlucky. They have a history of being thought to be witches familiars, but I think if a lonely old lady wants a cat to keep her company she should not be persecuted for it. If a black cat walks in front of me I try to stroke it!

Cats were worshipped in Egypt and thought to be related to gods.  I think the Egyptian cat God was Bast? however I may be wrong? Cats have lived with humans for thousands of years and caught mice and rats which eat grain, so they were well liked on farms.

Ideas for Black cat names? Sooty, Blackie, Beauty, Smudge, Molly, Lady, Archie, Night, Moonbeam…….

  1. I am in love with cats, even black cats. I have a very playful cat which we adopted, it was a stray cat. She’s very sweet.

  2. I have three, one gold, one like a panda and the other black and grey,
    I feed three at work, one full black with the greenest eyes, they are gorgeous.
    We are special ladies to have these blessed creatures in our lives.
    My babies are much loved and sometimes, no I lie, most times, I prefer them over people and their agendas!
