Happy Caturday! (8.20.2022)

By Prince Ramses XII

Welcome! Simce last Wedmesday was Black Cat Appreciatiom Day, this editiom of “Happy Caturday” is dedicated to chats moirs everywhere – big amd small.

Black cats were considered good luck on ships – this despite the fact that ALL cats are great hunters and kept rodents at bay during long voyages. The wives of English mariners kept black cats as TALISMANS to ensure their husbands’ safe return. In Britain, Japan, and Ireland having a black cat cross your path is a sign of GOOD luck. Single women in Japan who own black cats are said to attract more suitors; and in parts of the U.K., a black cat is the ideal wedding gift.

Because of superstitious ignorance, black cats are the least-adoptable among their shelter-mates; and because they are the target of cruel and sometimes fatal attacks during Halloween, shelters will no longer adopt them out during the month of October.

Black Cats Matter.
Because there are more “cats of color” than any other
– with one all-black purebred breed: the Bombay.

Why you should adopt a Black Cat:

  • We tend to be healthier than cats of other colors. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health discovered that the genetic mutations that cause cats to have black coats may offer them some protection from diseases.
  • If you wear a lot of black (Like SHE does.) you don’t have to worry about cat hair on your clothes.
  • Like the proverbial little black dress, we go with EVERYTHING – and holding us will make you look slimmer.
  • We are RARE (the black color of our coats is associated with the X chromosome, which often skips a generation).
  • Having a black cat is like living with a miniature-size panther.

All you need is love and a black cat.
