Today! Black Cat Appreciation Day

Did you know that August 17th is Black Cat Appreciation Day?
I just learned this so if you have one of those elegant black velvet furbabies give him/her a big hug and an extra treat ♥


August 17th Black Cat Appreciation Day

I had no idea. We have two. Black is my favourite colour in cats. Is there a black dog day too? We have one of them too.

I'm not a fan of blogs, any old Tom, Dick or Harry can write a blog and have no credentials at all. The link is from Animal Planet.

Hey, that's awesome!!! I think black cats are stylin'!! Black dogs, too! (Which, of course, doesn't explain all the primarily white dogs we have running around the house.... o.o) Seriously--when we finally get to where we're able to have cats, black is going to be my first choice. Sad that they get a bad rap due to silly superstition.

LOL Barkingdog.... Nigel has been called many things, sweet is not one of them. He's a little disturber! He has a voice and he is not afraid to use it! I got out of a telemarketer call because of him wailing in the background; the telemarketer thought he was a baby!

Handsome dude indeed...I too love black cats....my black cat Buddy had one of those intense voices too, and a purr to match, you could hear him purring in the living room from the back of the house.

My daughter and her famliy has a black cat and the cat will wake my daughter up at 5:30 AM by screaming in her face ,the cat is not shy at all about saying he is hungry . I was told most black cats have Siamese in them and Siamese cats are know for talking a lot.
