Well it’s finally here, Black Cat Day! Weez been lookin’ furward to this evew since we found out ‘bout it. Weez hav so many gweat furiends dat be black cats. And yous know what? Here’s a little sumfin’ yous not know ‘bout meez mommy. Hers vewy first kitty evew wus a solid black cat. Meez mommy had been raised in a furmily dat had lots of animals fwu da years, but nevew had kitties. Da man of da house fawt we kitties wuz all worffless and didn’t like us. It made meez mommy sad, but what kuld hers do, she wuz just a kid. But when meez mommy got all grown up and moved into hers vewy first pawtment hers went down to da local animal shelter and sed, “I want a kitty.” Da animal contwol peeps took mommy to da back and there they had 1 little kitten dat wuz only a foo days old layin’ on a cold hard metal table. They had alweady killed it’s mommy and 5 littermates and it wuz nex. A man in a white coat wuz fillin’ up a syringe. Mommy panicked and sed, “I’ll take that one.” Da shelter peeps told mommy dat it wuldn’t liv cuz it wuz too yung to be on it’s own. Mommy stood hers gwound and sed, “I don’t care what you think, I want that one.” They gave in and let mommy pick up da squirmin’ cwyin’ kitten and hold it close to hers heart. It immediately quit squirmin’ and stawted purrin’. It kuldn’t see or hear, but it seemed to know evewyfin’ wuz alwight now. Mommy didn’t unnewstand why they wuld kill a mommy and whole litter of kitties, so hers asked. They told her dat cuz all da kitties wuz black they wuldn’t get adopted. Mommy fawt dat wuz da most widiculous fing hers had evew heard. Unfurtunately hers later found out they wuz tellin’ da twuff. Ignowance and old wives tales still abound and peeps still buy into da myffs surroundin’ these bootyful kitties.
Let me tell you a foo fings ‘bout black kitties dat not be myffs. Did yous know dat there awe 3 basic colors of kitties dat all udder colors awe a combination of? Those 3 colors awe Black, Red and White. Yous know what dat means? Almost evewy kitty in da world has a black gene sumwhere in their DNA. And in da purebred arena of da CFA, pure black kitties awe an accepted color pattern in 22 bweeds. 22……not 1 or 2, but 22. Isn’t dat amazin’? Melanism which is what black is called, (like albinoism is what we call lack of color) may also actually enhance their immune system. Makin’ them mowe wesistant to illnesses and genewally heallffier. Betcha didn’t know dat. Those awe just a foo little fun facts ‘bout black cats. But yous know what? A black cat bleeds red just like me. Black cats purr da same as me. Black cats luv and play and just want a luvvin’ furever home just like any udder cat. There’s nuffin’ any mowe lucky or unlucky ‘bout a black cat than any udder cat. Tuxedo cats awe so vewy pawpular, and c’mon peeps, they’re black cats wiff white mawkins. No offense to meez tuxie furiends. Yous know me luvs ya’. But ifin not fur da extwa gene they wuld be solid black. Here at meez house we just don’t unnewstand what da big deal is, cuz we luv all kitties wegardless of color.
Sum of you hav been followin’ us a long time and know dat da wescue mommy volunteered wiff when hers took in sis Lexi and hers littermates wanted to kill them cuz they wuz so black. And mommy put hers foot down yet again and sed NO. And sis Lexi’s blood bwofur wuz adopted weally fast by a weally rich furmily dat live in a five stowwy house and they luved hims so much they made mommy purroud. Lexi’s udder littermate died due to injuwies sustained duwin’ hers birff, but had she lived she wulda been adopted too. As fur sis Lexi, mommy sez hers can’t magine life wiffout hers and all da luv she has bwought fwu out da years. And me can tell you dat she’s da bestest sisfur a girly kuld evew ask fur.
