    My Shadow

    I have owned a lot of cats over the years but never a solid black one.  I let cats come to me rather than me going out to find a cat.  About 4 months ago my first black kitten 6 weeks old came into my life.  I have not been the same.  I am so madly...

    Matilda is the little diva

    that owns my heart and runs my life. I found her in 2008 on the street with a swollen eye. She was so teeny. And infested with fleas. The swelling in her left eye was from some kind of blunt force (some idiot that must have kicked her).

    I have a sweet black cat

    which I named Raven. She's a rescue and very little and sweet and playful. Only about 1 year old, she's my best friend.

    I still love black kitties,

    even though the last one I owned turned out to be feral, and I had to give her up. I still miss my cat, though.

    I don't think they are bad luck.

    I would adopt a cat based on its personality, not the color of its fur.

    My cat sure knows how to keep me on my wheels!

    !!! (I'm disabled) He comes in just now looking like this. Now, he does love water but he does not like water being out on him unless its rain. What am I supposed to do?! LOL. Only my "child".

    Not many people adopt black cats

    because of superstition. I say that that's one superstition you shouldn't believe in! Black cats need help.

    He was, to be honest,

    one of the least attractive kittens in the rehoming centre: a scrawny, straggly little thing. I only really had him because the woman there told me black cats have much less chance of being adopted. I thought I was doing him a favour. Turned out to be exactly the opposite...

    My black cat is one of my best friends.

    She's moved with me, was homeless with me, was a companion through all kinds of bs and she's always there when I'm having a bad day. She's been around almost 11 years and I hope she's around for many more. I love my Spooky girl.

    My wife and I have two black cats.

    Their names are Spitfire and Evel Knievel. They are brothers, and virtual twins. The only way to tell them apart is that Spitfire has several white whiskers, whereas Evel Knievel doesn't.

    outside of my house for 5 days. Everyday I would go out there and try to coax it down, I'd set out food and water, I'd sit out there so he wouldn't cry so much either. I called everyone who I thought could help. (BTW the fire department doesn't get cats out of trees-_- my whole...
