Black Cat Appreciation Day August 17
Celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day with a Party
Roll out the Black Carpet! Celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day in style!
It's a day for the giving of gifts to black cats as well as some special love and affection.
It's also a purrfect day for people to have a party in honour of all cats, not just the beautiful black ones.Here's how to have the BEST Black Cat Party
The best cat?
What's the very best cat of the lot?
The Comely (black) Cat
For some reason that I'll never understand, black cats don't always get good media attention.
Why? Everyone knows that black cats are the smartest cats, the smoothest cats, the sweetest cats, the most majestic and noble, handsome and hunky.
Black cats are paramount, peerless and, let's face it, just plain purrfect.
Mind you, I could be a little biased.
Why can't people grow up?
There's another reason that black cats get bad press and (no pun intended) it's a very dark reason.
It's all connected to the childish superstitions that some people have carried for at least a couple of thousand years. It's hard for a cat to believe that there are some humans who are actually afraid of broken mirrors, dropping a fork at the table, walking under ladders or opening an umbrella inside the house.
The same people who think that black cats are bad luck. How crazy is that?
