Hi Blackjack Happy New Year!
Weekend blog: CATching up on the past week. Sent Mom off to work every morning again after the long holiday weekend.Was expecting snow Thursday into Friday, but it didn’t; just a little dusting of white. Yesterday we helped mom do the laundry. I ran downstairs to the basement & checked behind the storage racks & made sure there were no mice. Shadow made it down to the second step at the top of the stairs. Mom’s finally caught Shadow to brush his fur; usually he keeps running & hiding under furniture MOL!! We’re having fun chasing the laser lights we got for Christmas especially the length of the first floor from front door to back door. Now we’re expecting snow Tuesday through Wednesday, but not counting on it just yet. Saying prayers for our furfriends whose pawrents are recovering from illnesses. Have a great week & we’ll CATch up again next week with our blogs. Purrs, Terri

You helped make my day very special. I'm leaving you a thank you vote and I hope you have a great day!

Lots of kitty purrs, hugs and kisses,

Catnip Trivia-Catnip is a member of the mint family.
It has medicinal uses. Only 2/3 cats go crazy over catnip and it's an inherited trait. It's used to trap mountain lions. A chemical in catnip, hepatalactone, may be more effective against misquitoes than DEET.

My final good mews story of the month

After Hurricane Katrina, in New Orleans, a woman was forced to leave the city. She’d lost her family, dogs, and pet rabbit. She thought she’d lost her cat Cupcake too. Six months after the hurricane, an animal rescue person working to reunite owners and pets found the woman in Atlanta GA. She acknowledged that her black cat Cupcake had brought her good luck.

Today the moon is full!

A Good mews story

In 1996, Seattle Washington, a one year old black cat, Sneakers, disappeared from her yard. The family, including Sneakers owner, Hilary, 4 years old, was devastated. The family did all the usual things to find Sneakers: posted flyers, went door to door, contacted local shelters. Sneakers was never found or returned. Eventually he was replaced with other cats.

In 2006, an administrator from the Sacramento CA animal shelter called Hilary. A cat had been turned into the shelter because the family couldn’t care for the cat anymore. The cat was scanned for a chip, and a phone call resulted. After 10 years, Sneakers 10 years old and Hilary, now 14, were reunited.

4/27 Shadow presents “Le Chat Noir” The Black Cat
I can't believe that this is the final week of my catpaign! This is the last poem of the month and it was found on www.buzzle.com

A cat as black
As blackest coal,
Is out upon,
His midnight stroll,
His steps are soft,
His walk is slow,
His eyes are gold,
They flash and glow.
And so I run,
And so I duck,
I do not need,
His black-cat luck.
~Author Unknown

“The poet has so rightly described the beauty of a black cat, yet has been overpowered by his sense of superstition and fear of black cats. Black cats are just like other colored cats, yet black is mostly associated with dark and evil and therefore, black cats are considered unlucky. Black cats have always been portrayed as the omen of evil, the pets of witches and wizards, or as a 'fier, dame classe supérieure' in movies, cartoons and fictional writings”. from www.buzzle.com

Of course, the poet is wrong, because we Black Cats bring good luck! MOL!!! Shadow

Have you every wondered what to name your black cat? If you are looking to name a cat other than Blackie or Shadow (not that there’s anything wrong with Blackie or Shadow, I like Shadow myself MOL!) www.buzzle.com lists many alternative names, and some of them are pretty good.

Hi Blackjack! vote #25
4/25 Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” The Black Cat
An overcast day with temperatures in the 50s, light rain expected.

This is the last in the series on cats that are all black. It is the Havana Black Oriental Self Color that is featured here.

Prior to World War II, there was thought to have been a Siamese-type cat with a solid black coat. The cat today is not the same. In the 1960s, dedicated breeders, in the United Kingdom, began a program to produce a plain-coated cat of Siamese type without a restricted coat pattern. The Havana Black is the result of this breeding program. The breed is recognized in all countries.

This cat does not like to be left alone and should have the company of another cat. It is intelligent, affectionate, athletic and outgoing. In fact, it has a very high activity level. It is also very talkative. Its body is long and slim and of medium size. The Havana Black has a long whip like tail and long legs. Its head is triangular wedge shape, with a straight profile and large wide-set ears.

The coat is short, sleek and close lying, with little grooming required. The color is jet black to the root with no shading or markings. Its eyes are Oriental in shape and slanting toward the nose and the eye color should be a clear green.

Hi there! My name is Taz,and I am running for COTD!I would be so happy if you would please stop on over and leave a vote. I have been wanting this honor for a very long time!
So,here is my story:Gidgit and I had a nice home when we were just kittens. Plenty of food,and love. All was well until our owner got married. The guy that she married didn't really like us.But,that was our lfe. Then,when they got divorced,Gidgit and I were given to the ex husband who didn't even like us. He kept us for a few weeks,then decided to move to an apartment that didn't allow cats. He took us to a shelter. The lady at the shelter said the shelter was full,but when she heard that Gidgit was a Sphynx,she said she knew someone that might take her. She called mom,and mom called old owner. She was thrilled,cause she had always wanted a Sphynx,but when she heard that I needed a home,and was going to be put down...Now I live a life of luxury. I do whatever I want. I am extrememly spoiled,and I get my own way all the time. I have even gone to a few shows. I got Grand Champion! But,that was a few years ago. Now I am too old for that kind of stuff. BUT,that does not mean I cannot win cat of the day!!!! If you can please change your name to say like:VOTE TAZ COTD!" or send this around to all your friends,I would love it! And like I always say,with great friends,ANYTHING is possible! Love,Taz

More Black Cat Tales, Trivia & Superstitions

In some countries, sailor’s wives kept black cats in their homes to ensure the safe return of their husbands.

Sailors thought having a black cat on board the ship was good luck. But, it was forbidden to say the word “cat” during the voyage, or the trip would be sabatoged. This is because they thought the cat was a disguised witch.

In France, there is a legend about a black cat named “Matagot.” If Matagot comes to your door, take him in and care for him. It is thought this will bring the family wealth.

An ancient Japanese legend tells of a vampire cat that kills beautiful maidens by sucking their blood. The cat assumes the identity of the maiden and preys on her lover.

To reverse the bad luck curse of a black cat crossing your path, first walk in a circle, then go backward across the spot where it happened and count to 13.

Black Cat Stories with happy endings.

Molly the Mouser
In April 1, 2006 a black kitty, Molly the Mouser, 11 months old lived at a deli in Manhattan. The cat became lost inside the walls of the building. The fire and police were called to help, followed by the Animal Care and Control Department. The poor kitty was lost between the walls for 14 days. All types of devices were used to try to find Molly, including drills, miniature cameras, and raw fish to try to coax Molly out.

Finally, two weeks later, on April 14, the rescuers found her wedged between bricks and sheet metal and pulled her out to cheers from onlookers. Molly was fed a wonderful meal and recuperated nicely, returning to her mousing duties.

EARTH DAY

In tribute to our wild black leopard cousins here is A.A. Milne’s poem “Pinkle Purr.”

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
A little black nothing of feet and fur;
And by and by, when his eyes came through,
He saw his mother, the big Tattoo.
And all that he learned he learned from her,
“I’ll ask my mother,” says Pinkle Purr

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
A ridiculous kitten with silky fur.
And little black Pinkle grew and grew
Till he got as big as the big Tattoo.
And all he did he did with her.
“Two friends together,” says Pinkle Purr.

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
An adventurous cat in a coat of fur.
And whenever he thought of a thing to do,
He didn’t much bother about Tattoo.
For he knows it’s nothing to do with her,
So “see you later,” says Pinkle Purr.

Tattoo was the mother of Pinkle Purr,
An enormous leopard with coal-black fur.
A little brown kitten that’s nearly new
Is now playing games with its big Tattoo
And Pink looks lazily down at her:
“Dear little Tat,” says Pinkle Purr.

Happy Office Professionals’ Day to our Mom & Dad bloggers!!

Big Black Cats are an Endangered Species, a story found on the Internet National Geographic. Sad story,but true.

The jaguar is more commonly known to be a large yellow and spotted cat. In some traditions the Jaguar God of the Night was the formidable lord of the underworld. The name jaguar is derived from the Native American word yaguar, which means "he who kills with one leap." But, jaguars also come in a sleek black color of black with black spots. The jaguar once populated North and South America, but is now found mostly near the Amazon Jungle. There is one at the San Diego Zoo named Oscar who is a Brazilian jaguar. In the zoo near Budapest Hungary, there is also a black jaguar. Jaguars are fast animals, and the symbol of the sports car since 1935. It exemplifies sleekness and grace.

The black panther aka cougar(Puma concolor)is an endangered species on the continent of Africa. The panther is a large, long-tailed predatory cat with big paws for its size.Its population grows smaller along with its habitat. Environmental contamination from chemicals like mercury is also endangering these beautiful animals.The black panther is also found in South America and Western United States.
Unfortunately, both cats are being killed by hunters for the big cats beautiful and precious fur and by farmers to protect livestock.

Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” the Black Cat
This is a short poem by Zbigniew Herbert, translated by John and Bogdana Carpenter. It is found in the book “The Great Cat” poems about cats. It is simply titled “Cat”

“He is all black, but has an electric tail. When he sleeps in the sun he is the blackest thing one can imagine. Even in his sleep he catches frightened mice. One can see this in the little claws that are growing from his paws. He is terribly nice and naughty. He picks birds off the trees before they are ripe.”

Not all poems end happily if you're a bird or a mouse.

Now for a joke:
Is it bad luck if a black cat follows you?
That depends on whether you’re a man or a mouse.

Marathon Day and Bunker Hill Day in Boston MA, and Patriots Day in Eastern MA (and a day off from work for Mom, yeah!

Yesterday we read about the Bombay and Asian Self.Today a true story about a Bombay cat.

Did you know that a Bombay cat from Brookfield CT was named after Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State? Colin Powell, the cat, was CFA’s 2003-2004 Cat of the Year. He had been judged 290 times and beat out 22,700 other cats for the honor. Colin Powell, former Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (highest military position in Department of Defense) met Colin Powell the CFA cat of the year in Mid-August 2004.

The cat was born on the first anniversary of September 11. Mr. Powell had the honor of naming one of Colin the cat’s sons. The owners of Colin Powell, the Bombay, had a tradition of naming their cats after prominent African-Americans. Mr. Powell chose to name the kitten Ralph Bunche, the first African-American to receive a Nobel Peace Prize.

The sun and the clouds can't make up their mind today; temps are in the 40s-50s! Thanks to all who sent get well wishes to our Mom. She’s beginning to feel better from the cold she’s had for a week.

On Sundays Black Cat breeds are highlighted. Today it is the Bombay (and Asian Self)

The Bombay is the best know breed of the Asian Selfs. Bombays have been produced in Britain and the USA. In Britain it is a cross between the Burmilla/Asian. In the USA it was the result of mating a Burmese with a domestic shorthair. As a result, the two Bombay breeds vary slightly in looks. The Bombay is known as the “patent leather kid with the copper penny eyes.” Its eyes are very bright. The eyes are large and colored copper in the USA, and also gold, yellow, chartreuse, green are acceptable in Britain.

The body is a medium-sized well-muscled body with a wedge-shaped head and a rounded dome. The ears are medium size and wide set. The front legs are slightly shorter than the rear legs. The tail is proportioned to the body and tapers to the tip.

Its jet-black coat has a famous sheen and texture. The coat is close lying, shiny and sleek. The Bombay must have solid deep black jet color to the roots. Coloring should be even, although some tabby markings are acceptable. Little grooming is needed.

The Bombay is outgoing, athletic, affectionate and intelligent. It is also very talkative.

Praying for Zim #111921 to come home.

Hi Blackjack-nice to meet you-left you vote #22! Pawhugs, Shadow

Mom has had a very bad cold/flu or allergy this week. Hopefully it will all go away very soon. That is why, except for the CMR page and visiting & voting for COTD, yesterday we weren’t able to do the COTM blog. This morning, Tery & I propped mom in her computer chair & put a soft pillow behind her back, so that she’ll be able to help me with my daily COTM blogs. Today is a presentation of Furiday and Caturday. Thank you for your understanding. Pawhugs, Shadow

Ted’s Adventure
A black cat, Ted, from California jumped out of his owner’s car through a window in 1994 and disappeared. Ten years later, the humane society near San Francisco found Ted. Owner and cat were reunited because Ted was wearing a microchip. The owner said the it was like old times, with Ted rubbing against his owner and seemed happy to be home. Now they take rides in the car with the window rolled up.

More Trivia (from“For the Love of Cats”):
Winston Churchill was a well know cat lover. He took his black cat, Nelson, with him when he became prime minister of Great Britain in 1940. A chair was held for Nelson next to Churchill in the Cabinet.

A common belief around the world is that every black cat has a least one single white hair. If you can find it and pull the hair out without getting scratched, a happy marriage will be yours. (Don’t try this on me-I’m sharpening my claws MOL!).

Black cats are welcomed in the theater. This is because many actors have reported “black cat experiences.” It has been reported that seeing a black cat before taking the stage will deliver a show-stopping performance. The black cat is considered such good luck that some actors bring their own backstage with them. Nicholas Cage has a Bombay.

Hi Blackjack
4/1 Shadow presents“Le Chat Noir” the Black Cat
April Fools Day! This is no joke though!!!!

I am extremely honored to have been chosen to catpaign for May Cat of the Month and hope to follow in the paw steps of those who have come before me. Being the first all Black Cat to run for this esteemed position, I am going to devote this month to highlighting the black cat in literature, art, history, and trivia There are also certain breeds of cat who are all black and they will be highlighted.

Some of the books that provided information about black cats are: Cats Out of the Bag/Beck/Premium Press; The Great Cat-Poems/Fragos/Everyman- - - ’s Library Pocket Poets/Alfred A.Knopf; For the Love of Cats Purrfect Felines/Harris/Publicatio- - - ns International, Ltd; The Little Big Book of Cats/Wong/Welcome Books; Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader Cat Lover’s Companion, and CAT-the Complete Guide/Claire Bessant/Barnes & Noble.

Today, some trivia from “Cats Out of the Bag”. Pluto is The Black Cat in Edgar Allen Poe’s eerie short story about a cat’s vengeance upon an evil drunkard.

The superstition about having bad luck if a black cat crosses your path grew from the belief that the cat was on its way to visit the devil.

In olde England it was believed that a sty in the eye would be cured if rubbed with a black cat’s tail.
