Yes, it's another Black Cat Day -- National Black Cat Day, that is.  This time it's on Sunday, November 17.  We are many different breeds  -- we are male & female.  We may look serious & mysterious but we love to be silly, cuddle & purr. Next time you adopt, go with one of us.  You won't regret it.

THE GREAT WAR & UNCLE GENE
by Spirit on Nov 10 2019 Add Comment

Our hooman's Great-Uncle, Eugene, was drafted (lists of new draftees were published in local newspapers) to the Great War/WWI. He was captured by the Germans or, as he referred to them in his letters, by the Round Heads (German soldiers wore round helmets). His letters spoke of harsh weather, sparse if any food & being moved to different prisons.  He knew what countries he was in but never sure where in that country (no maps). He was very thin when he got off the ship after 18 months in prison....

CATS IN THE TRENCHES

This pic is:  "A gunner with the regimental cat in a trench. Cambrin, France. 2/6/1918 (1WM)"  Per an article on 8/22/2014 by Bruce Strauss: "Cats were a common sight in the trenches & aboard ships where they hunted mice & rats. Beyond their 'official' duties, they were also embraced as mascots & pets by the soldiers & sailors with whom they served.  An estimated 500,000 cats were dispatched to the trenches where they killed rats & mice..."

Thank you to all Veterans who have served & still serve & their family members!  We're sending a special meow-out to the animals who serve while in harms way as well as the pets at home tryin' to figure out where their mom or dad went & what those words "war" & "service" are all about. Thank you!

WE HAD MORE VISITORS!
by Sophee on Nov 9 2019 Add Comment

Let me introduce you to our regular house guests, Fran & her hubby Ken. Where is Ken? Reading. He reads really early every morning. They might not stay with us for very long so we soak up whatever attention they give us. Most important, Fran is the best "Catch-the-Laser" player of all the hoomans that we know!  Gracee & I never tire of playin' that game!  But here you catch Fran & I takin' a break -- just kickin' it.  Fran's reclinin' & me?  I'm perchin' & purrin!'  

WE HAD VISITORS!
by Inkee-Bear on Nov 9 2019 Add Comment

No, I didn't "take over" our dining room chair like my hooman thinks I did.  It's called "sharing."  I'm sharing the chair with with our friend and house guest, Muriel, at our dining room table.  It's fun to sit with hoomans. Muriel has a nice soft voice. She & her husband, Lee, gave us lots of pets. Since when do cats not like attention?  Know what I mean?  Muriel even gave our hooman an idea on a creepy Halloween story. And, trust me, it turned out creepy!  

PUMPKIN STALKER ALERT!

I'm bewitched, bothered AND bewildered -- yes, all three -- by this pumpkin. I think it's stalking me!!!  Help!!

Be forewarned all you Tricksters & Tweeters, you come knockin' on our door, we'll answer but we cats aren't given' up any treats!  No siree!  All 4 of us agree on that!

by Inkee-Bear on Oct 26 2019 Add Comment

I'm askin' all hooman's out there to appreciate us black cats on our day, Black Cat Appreciation Day on October 27. You can give us any or all of the following EXTRAS: treats, pets & scratches, new toys, play time, cuddle time & whatever else your cat asks for. Basically, just appreciate us -- oh yeah -- love us. 

BLACK CAT WATCHES BLACK CAT

This is my fav cat artist -- Jamie Perry. And this is my fav kind of cat, a black cat -- just like me. I love perchin' here & lookin' at him.  Does he know Oct 27 is Black Cat Appreciation Day? Somebody better tell him, don't you think?  

SLEEPY YAWN
by Gracee on Oct 24 2019 Add Comment

Yes, I admit it, I'm sleepy. Everyone slows down sometime. Maybe you need to slow down sometimes too. Real slo-o-o-o-w if you get my drift. G'night.  Don't let the bed bugs bite. May you dream only sweet dreams. No, not about candy -- I mean good dreams, happy dreams!  

ONE CAT TO ANOTHER
by Sophee on Oct 24 2019 Add Comment

Spirit pays more attention to me if I whisper in his ear. No, I'm not going to tell you what I'm telling him. So, just in case you ever wondered if we cats ever talk to each other -- the answer is:  "Yes, we do!"

THE "ONE-PAW-HOLD"
by Inkee-Bear on Oct 19 2019 Add Comment

Sometimes a big brother's gotta' do what a big brother's gotta' do. In this instance, I'm holdin' Spirit back -- it's my infamous "one-paw-hold."  I'm tryin' to keep him from gettin' in more trouble. This little silver & black cat gets into more "troub" than the rest of us put together. His first name should be "No!"  And his middle name should be "Trouble" so he would be called "No Trouble."

YOGURT FACE
by Inkee-Bear on Oct 19 2019 Add Comment

Guess you can see what my fav treat is --  yogurt!  I'm wearin' it now. When our hooman finishes her yogurt for breakfast, she lets us lick the container clean. I love yogurt!  You have to know how to get your muzzle in that container to lick it clean as a whistle. Yogurt!  Yum!  

GRACEE COOLS HER CLAWS
by Gracee on Oct 12 2019 Add Comment

A girl has to cool her claws sometimes if you know what I mean. Hopefully, my speedster youngest brother, Spirit, in the shadows behind me, will give me a break for a few anyway. "Hey, Spirit, I need a time-out!"  He needs to be given direction directly from me if you know what I mean. To see us in 3D, go to our FB, see this posting, move your phone (or move your mouse over) this same FB pic & you'll see us in 3D! It's more fun than anyone (even Spirit) can imagine. See ya' there!

JUST SAY NO TO "COMMITTEE" MEETINGS
by Gracee on Oct 5 2019 Add Comment

I gotta' be honest. My siblings' "Committee" meetings are a total waste of time. So I just say no to their little meetings. They can yowl all they want. I do what I want & they know it. Cry me a river, know what I mean?   They say:  "Gracee may be little but she's mighty."  You can take that to the bank. My hiss will make any respectable cat run & hide. So, do it my way or HISSS!
