    We lost our ragdoll Furby two Sundays ago, he will be missed. Frankly, ALL cats are beautiful… at least the ones with fur. The hairless ones remind me of rubber-skinned taxidermy.

    6th one down (the fluffy one) is the spitting image of my cat Regulus. But shouldn’t Halloween also be national black cat day?

    Black cats, as I learned are lucky. We talked about lucky black cats and gave little images as good luck charms. So when, and how did this change to them being unlucky?
    Many people recently have mentioned them being unlucky.
    It was especially lucky if one crossed your path.

  9. For over 5 decades, neither my cousin nor I were without cats (as in plural). I don’t think either of us ever had a pure black cat (two “tuxedo” cats came the closest with just the tiniest bit of white). How beautiful they are, though!

    • Tuxedo cats are beautiful. The closest thing I have to a black cat is my little Holstein cat, Bessie — a stray that my middle daughter brought home many years ago. (My kids were great at rescuing stray kittens and bringing them home, but not so great at taking their cats with them when they moved out.) Bessie doesn’t like other cats, but she loves humans, especially my grandson, whom she positively adores.

    Once again I missed National Black Cat Day?! Nonetheless, the following is truly a mostly true account via verse. …

    She laid by his bared feet
    at the foot of his bed
    though in his dream they’d meet
    which they did in his head.

    For this sleek black feline
    she’d been in there before
    such she’d never decline
    as that cat he’d adore.

    A myth it couldn’t be
    that her claws touched his toes
    as the dreaming did he
    was about that she knows.

    The dream she boldly caught
    that night she did invade
    was the dream she had sought
    the dream she’d long delayed.

    Within she placed her claws
    upon his sleep-bound feet
    all performed with no flaws
    then and there they did meet.

    Though not feeling abused
    by prickling on his toes
    he still looked down confused
    at each of five toes, two rows.

    Naught of her did he find
    in his dream created
    though back to wakened mind
    he saw her and stated

    ‘Mimi, it’s you—you rascal!’
    yet he still adored her
    while finding special
    her response a smooth ‘mrrrr’.

    From the thick mattress down
    she landed easy goes
    as he said ‘You little clown—
    you leave alone my toes.’

    Thought she, ‘Again we’ll meet
    as you dream fast asleep
    when the toes on your feet
    from my paws you cannot keep.’
