Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day

(YouTube link)

August 17 is Black Cat Appreciation Day! Black cats, like black dogs, are often passed over for adoption, possibly because of outdated myths, or possibly because their color makes it difficult to see their facial expressions. But black cats need homes, too, and they can be wonderfully loving pets.

Furball Fables celebrates with a video highlighting their favorite black cats: Kitten Gunnar, Buddha, Spooky, Squiggy, Ziggy, Lucky and Miss Blacat.  

There’s a Facebook page called For the Love of Black Cats where you can plenty more black cats on Black Cat Appreciation Day -or any time.

And here’s a “now and then” picture of my black cat Gogo as a kitten and fifteen years later.

We have three black cats, Meep, and a pair of twin sisters, Fluorine and Chlorine. I can't always tell them apart if they're not near each other...and we didn't actually mean/ to end ujp withj three near-identical moggies, but that's what happened. Two are on the table with me now (actually, I'm not on the table, just at it) and the other - Florrie - is off terrorising something somewhere.
