All about Bennie (r) & Joon (l)
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.

Bennie & Joon are brother & sister. They are named after the brother & sister characters in the movie Bennie & Joon. They are the older two of a group of four (see Phineas & Gussie.)
Bennie: a.k.a. Boonie, Ben, Benjamin, Booboo
Was the first long-haired cat I got to know. I love brushing him, and he seems to enjoy it but he moves slowly away from me as I brush him so I end up slowly scooching along the floor after him.
Has a lair underneath the bed where he lies in a hammock created by a sheepskin stapled to the bed frame. He was very depressed after his dog, Ceilidh, passed away and would spend a lot of time in his hammock alone mourning.
Joon: a.k.a. Joonie Louise, Juniper
Loves to sit on your lap to be petted, for hours. She'll purr the entire time and a bead of spit will form on her chin.
Enjoys helping with paperwork by lying on it, helping with the computer by lying on the keyboard. She's very insistent and if you want to actually get something done she needs to be invited into the other room and the door closed.
