Five Reasons Real Black Cats Rock!

A sort of pome by Phoebe Kitten. 

  • Their gleaming beauty is not haughty

  • They are not naughty, like a tortie. (Only don’t tell Binga at Summer’s blog we said that!)

  • Their midnight fur is sleek, and will make your knees go weak.

  • Their fur shimmers like black gems AND

  • They make Unforgettable friends!

OK guys, now go get adopting those black cats, worldwide. After Halloween is a great time, and both PAWS and Place for Cats have black felines for your viewing pleasure. Get. In. Touch!
