All about Phineas & Gussie
You are walking down the street and a black cat crosses your path. What do you do? Whether you dismiss it or not, many people think of it as some kind of a bad omen. Black cats and bad luck is a superstition that has lived on even in modern society. Past events, and present misconceptions of these cats keep this unfortunate stereotype alive.
Black is a colour that often brings an emotional response. What do you think of when you imagine this colour? Night, darkness, boring, no colour, dark, evil, scary are all common (and generally negative) words to describe black. This negative connotation of the colour black also applies to black cats. The portrait of the black cat as an omen of bad luck began with accusations of witchcraft and witch-hunts many years ago. It was believed that black cats had magical powers that allowed them to transform themselves into witches.

Phineas and Gussie are brothers named after the characters in Tom Stoppard's play, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead. They were born among many other feline families in a barn but were abandoned by their mother after some hay bales nearby were moved. When their prospective owner was picking out two kittens from the many kittens she asked me, "What do you think about these two?" I said, "They're perfect." And they are. They were so small they had golf ball sized heads and would suck and knead our necks.
About PHINEAS Rosencrantz: a.k.a. Phoo
will reach out with his paw and tap me as I walk by. His gentle way of saying Hi and tranferring me to the now, this moment.
is very curious and as a kitten he would tip over cups of coffee and glasses of milk in his attempt to discover their contents. Now he tends to dip his paw into the liquid and then lick it off his paw.
is a very attentive assistant. He stayed with me the whole time while I was replacing a faucet. He intently watched me, sending me encouraging vibes, and would occasionally walk through the project making sure I was on the right track using the right tools.
He loves studying physics (just like Rosencrantz) and enjoys doing gravity experiments like pushing things (earrings, watches, glasses, coins) off surfaces.
About GUSSIE Guildenstern:
He is the younger of the two and "de baby of da family." He has a hard time waking up and tends to be the last one down for dinner, slowing walking in with his half-closed eyes blinking.
He is the best hunter of the family and the most athletic. He has worked a hole in the window screen to the point he can now walk through it. He likes to go in and out and in and out and in and out and in.
