Black Cat Appreciation Day
This is my fourth post today. I only expected to write two, but decided to blog a bit more more when on Facebook Ms Misantropia made me discover that today is Black Cat Appreciation Day. I missed World Cat Day on the 8th of August, I did not want to miss that one. I love all cats, but black cats in particular. And my long time readers know that there is a special black cat that that I love particularly: Odin. Who tragically died. I have never completely recovered from his death. This is one of the few unpublished (I think) pictures I have of him. You can see better pictures of him back in 2013, when I was blogging about him loads and loads. Now there is a cat who semi-adopted us, a tuxedo cat, so black and white, he is a regular guest in the flat anyway, but while I love him he is no Odin. I never felt such bond with an animal. And his blackness was not the only reason why I loved him so much, but it contributed to it, as well as contributing to his attitude I think, cool and aloof, yet sure of power over silly primates like myself. See how easily he took his ease in our bed. So next time I adopt a cat, there is a big chance he is going to be black.
