    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...

    Black cats.. Evil? My butt,

    i've owned a black cat for about 8 years now, and never ONCE. He gave me bad luck, every time he crossed my path, my day was becoming better and better. ------------------------ If black cats bring bad luck, black dogs do too. -.-

    My first cat was black.

    I loved Serina, and Serina loved to fight. Used to beat up our sheltie. Alas, I was just a kid then, and they've both long since passed. About a year ago, though, we adopted a little scrapper born premature because the mother, who would not have survived the birth, had owners...

    I have a sweet black cat

    Hera

    I love my beautiful black cat, Hera. (If you didn't know, Hera is the Queen of the Greek Gods). She is such a soulful animal, that when I look into her eyes, it's like looking into little wells. And I shouldn't have called her an animal, even though she is, because she is a...

    My Prince

    My black cat Binx, is my world. He's my baby, and he knows it. He's so incredibly spoiled, but I love it so much. When I leave he cries for me, when he can't find me he cries for me, when we sleep; he sleeps in my arms like a baby. I don't know what I'd do without him. He...

    I Saved A Cat

    I was running at a local park and I heard meowing. I'm afraid of just randomly stopping wherever, but I told myself that the next person I saw I would tell them about the cat and leave them to deal with it. I ended up sitting next to the sewer grate for an hour and just...

    My Cat Population Is Turning Black

    For years I have taken in stray cats. For sanitary and economic reasons, I cap the number at ten although I know many more need homes. Now and then I lose one, and (although I try to resist) there always comes another soon. In the past few years, I have gone from having maybe one...

    Little Kitten

    I always wanted a really black, all black cat.  I went searching by keeping a watch on the free kitten ads in the newspapers.  I finally found one! Pure black, 8 weeks old.  Took her home, later took her to the vet to get spayed and declawed.  (Yes I know some of you have a...

    I have one too! He's the most affectionate and sweetest cat that ever lived. To me. And yet, he dominates the other cats with iron pawed ruthlessness. He's submissive to me and yet he swats at the other kitties when he even thinks he's being slighted.I've had this guy since he...

    Save a Life! Adopt a Pet!

    I've adopted two wonderful black cats. One was dumped at our school near Halloween. The out was a pound kitten. Please remember to spay or neuter your pets. People have yet to learn the value of unconditional love!

    My first cat was a solid black cat

    that we brought home from the shelter. She was the only one left in her kennel as all her litter mates (who weren't black) had been adopted. I still remember, I was sitting on the floor when they opened her door. She walked right up to me, sat in my lap, stared up at me...

    I have a black cat name Salem.

    I named him after Salem, Mass. In the early times, black cats were thought as spies for their owners but mainly for warlocks & witches. Black cats are mysterious and beautiful.
