Black Cat Appreciation Day.....

Of course, Mozart thinks that should be EVERY day. And his siblings say....pfffft.

Mo gives his siblings the evil eye for their disregard

Mo says we need to feature a few black cats that need to be adopted:

Winnie's Wish has a couple of adorable black kittens:
Hershey Bear: Domestic Medium Hair - Brown, Cat; Grand Chain, IL  Hershey Bear
Maverick: Domestic Short Hair-Black, Cat; Grand Chain, IL  Maverick
Mickey Mouse: Domestic Short Hair-Black And White, Cat; Grand Chain, IL Mickey Mouse
**yeah, yeah, we know he isn't black, but he is Maverick's brother and he is SORTA black. :)
The rescue where mom volunteers has several black cats & kittens, but we want to tell you about 2 of them:
She had been adopted but was returned when her family was tranferred to Japan. Now, normally we get a little annoyed by returns "for moving" but we think the distance and the fact that we have heard it is really super hard to find housing in Japan that will allow pets is a good enough reason in this case.
From the shelter: Antonia has a lot of love to give and she would be happy to give some to you. Antonia is a beautiful ebony cat with a calm and quiet disposition. She loves to quietly follow staff around during the day and to rub up against their legs as they walk around the room. She really enjoys having her head petted and especially loves it when she is scratched behind her ears. She does not like to be held too much, but she loves to sit in laps and constantly tries to be with anyone she can. She sometimes is a little hesitant to hang out with the other cats at the shelter, but she tolerates them as long as they do not try to wrestle with her too much or steal her favorite cat beds. Antonia was adopted from our shelter a year ago but was returned recently because her adopters had to move to China and could not take Antonia along. She is a little stressed to be back at the shelter, but please give her a chance to show you her amazing personality and sweet disposition. Antonia promises to make your days and nights less lonely.
Chloe is a BIG girl. Mom calls her the beach whale - she is living in the directors office. You can hear her calling for attention when you walk into the shelter. And when you walk in the office, she immediate drops to the floor and rolls over for tummy rubs.
From the shelter: Chloe is a wonderful girl who has had a rough start to life. She was originally brought to Logan County Humane Society over two and a half years ago. At the Humane Society, adult cats take a very long time to be adopted, even if they are as sweet and wonderful as Chloe. For this reason, she stayed at Logan County for over three years. She recently was transferred to us in the hope that her adoptive family will come soon to CHA and take her home. She is a goofy girl - When you come in the room with her, she will instantly lay down and arch up her back and invite you to pet her. She LOVES attention and is a purr machine. When you pet her, she will happily knead her paws and purr away. When you sit down, Chloe will come right up and put her two paws on your lap. Chloe has been exposed to other cats thoroughly for the last three years and as a result, she gets along with everyone.
So, there you have it. Our house panther and some house panthers that need homes. Need more incentive?  Our pal Romeo the cat posted about Why Black Cats are Awesome
