National Black Cat Day 27th October 2015

Sam under the carpetDid you know, according to Cats' Protection, it takes, on average, 13% longer to rehome a monochrome moggy.  That's 1 week longer in care, simply because of the colour of their fur. 

If you have got a black cat, or have had a black cat, send me their pictures and I'll add them to this page.  Let's celebrate black, and black and white cats, for the beautiful creatures that they are.

 This is a picture of my beloved cat, Sam, who was sadly put to sleep on January 3rd 2014

Dogs Come when Called

"Dogs come when called. Cats take a message and get back to you."

"Of course, every cat is really the most beautiful woman in the room."
