Pet Tip

Black Cats – Pet tip 170

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.

How I met Boo
December (96) I was downsized at work. We decided it was a good time to move to a new town. Before I left my former work place, there was someone from my company who was moving into a new house too. There they found that the previous owners had left behind (outside) a very cute grey and white kitty. They said they would come back for him but they never did.
They had also left behind in their basement their tenants dog with a cast on his leg. They forgot to tell the tenant that they were moving (????) and they were supposed to take care of the dog for him while he was away. So the women called the Animal Control because she didn’t know what to do with the dog. His owner later went and claimed him back.
Well, the women and her son were allergic to all pets and brought the kitty to work. I baby-sat him all day. At the end of the day another person took him home. The next day she brought him back because her husband had said “no way”.
So I took him home with me. Here I was unemployed, Shadow was very ill and we were moving. At first my husband said no, but I cried that we couldn’t turn him away and he knew in his heart that Kitty and Shadow wouldn’t be with us much longer and relented. Someone at work had named him Smokey, but I started calling him Booboo (it's his love name. Well, I took him to the vets for all his tests and needles. Turned out he had ear mites that took us 6 weeks to clear up.
But he had a very important role to play in our future.
When Kitty and Shadow passed away he was there for us, to comfort us and for us to hug cause we were very heart sore. But he was lonely too for kitty companionship.
