Black Cat Appreciation day, well it is if you are in the USA. If you are in the UK the official day is 27th October 2016. I’ll probably be otherwise occupied that day though as it will be our 10th wedding anniversary, so thought I’d celebrate early by appreciating Black Cats today. The first one I thought of course is Jeffrey, my hubby’s black cat and the 6th cat I’ve lived with. He died a couple of years before we got married, but you never forget a cat who has owned and trained you.
All of my other gorgeous black cats, with the exception of Alisdair from Essex and the sibling and mother of another, are gatos pretos Portugês or perhaps they are gatas?!
I’m never too sure if it is good luck or bad luck if a black cat crosses your path but here is an excellent public service film to explain some of the other misconceptions.
