Black cats tell all in our gorgeous Valentine’s Day giveaway. We have two absolutely fabulous cat treats for cat lovers that you will totally love and want to win.


Feline royalty is the sponsor of our blog post. Many thanks to Erin the Cat Princess for sponsoring our two exclusive prizes! Read on to find out the details and our book report!

Cat Lovers Copy of Black Cats Tell All

When we read the eBook last year we had no idea just how beautiful a printed copy of this book might be. It is substantial and printed in high quality full colour, the paperback is the perfect book for any cat lover, and will make the purrrfect gift. The printed edition lifts the spirits and is, for us, a black cat – life affirming – read.

Black Cats Tell All

Not only is it filled with exceptionally fine portraits of black cats. It has biographies written in the cat’s own words, rescue stories, and adventuring cats. This is probably the best black cat book ever. It is filled to the cat bowl brim with proper tails tales about black cats, and why black cats are awesome.

You can meet local New Zealander Bruce, jet black panfur Ernie from the Island Cats, Willow from Down Under, and Parsley from Bionic Basil’s blog. Black cats tell us their stories and each one is a delight. I think everyone owning a black cat knows how lucky they are, now the rest of us get to find out.

Not every cat in an internet celebrity. The focus is 100% on black cats, and also the joy and beauty they bring into so many lives. The book shows the truth about black cats and their many gifts to everyone around the world.

Here’s just a few black cat talents:

  • Adoptable
  • Beautiful
  • Filled with Love
  • Caring
  • Adventurous
  • Playmates and
  • Clowns

We know you will agree!

TIP If you prefer an electronic book. Layla is offering the ebook for sale on Gumroad for a MINIMUM donation of $1. We KNOW if you want the eBook you will donate more than that so, buy now. You can also buy the paperback at Layla’s Amazon link here. Now read on for our exclusive T-shirt Giveaway!

Our goal is to change perception about Black Cats one story and one photo at a time” – Layla Morgan Wilde

Not only to Black Cats Tell All in our Giveaway, we have an exceptional EXTRA treat

Aeris the Movie Exclusive Kickstarter Tshirt

When I was sharing the Winn Foundation FIP Bria Fund raffle last year, I came across a Kickstarter by Aly Miller and Paul Castro Jnr. raising funds to make a short movie about an FIP kitten.

Aeris the Movie Promotional poster

The movie was about a kitten with FIP, and the script was to be called Aeris. It would have a professional cast and high production values. Short movies are included in the annual Academy Awards which this means that they are taken seriously. So, of course the Dash Kitten blog jumped in with our friend Erin, to help the Kickstarter.

The film is not only about FIP. It is about an innocent, life deprived animal who taught two people one of their greatest lessons ever learned: how to love. Not only each other, but all living things, and about how those twelve days gave purpose to Aeris’ life……  Once we have completed this film, all proceeds gained through distribution or other donations will be donated to the Heaven On Earth Society For Animals Rescue Organization.” – Paul Castro Jnr.

We have one ‘Limited Edition’ Aeris Movie Tshirt as part of our giveaway prize

    this looks like a great giveaway. Is the movie about the cat still being made? Anytime I watch movies about animals, I tend to cry like a baby. I cry every Saturday night watching TV shows about vets on Animal Planet.
