Here’s a quick post with Boss, who is helping us celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day today! He’s also here to present a link to my black cat essay, which is based around an excerpt from my MUSE Medallion Award winning book, Catwoods.

My book Catwoods is a Certificate of Excellence Winner!
My book Catwoods is a MUSE Medallion Winner
Black cats rule! As do tuxedo cats! Love them all!
I love them all too, Mary! We’ve always taken in the cats who have come to the door, many were black kitties but there were also tuxies, tabbies, torties, orangies, Siamese mixes … etc.
Concatulations on the Muse Medallion, well deserved and the book is wonderful!
Purrs & Head Bonks,
Alberto, Oliver & Lily
Thank you so much for your kind words, Alberto, Oliver & Lily, I appreciate it! Purrs and head bonks in return from Franklin, and the Kittens!
Congrats again on the award! And yes, good eye! Zulu is actually a Havana Brown oriental- most people just think he is a black cat but in the sun you can see he is more of a choco brown!
Thanks so much for your kind words, I appreciate it! Zulu is really gorgeous! I’ve never actually seen a kitty of that breed, just the pictures.
Love everything about your cat. We’ve only had one black cat, but he was a character. We always have Gingers. Your photos are wonderful.
Boss and I thank you lbeth1950, for your kind words! I’m happy you like the photos, and thank you for following me. Gingers are always pretty cats! We’ve always taken in whoever came to the door, and many were black kitties.
Charlee: “You are looking very artistic there, Boss!”
Chaplin: “Happy belated Black Cat Appreciation Day!”
Boss and I thank you Charlee and Chaplin, and wish y’all a Happy belated Black Cat Appreciation Day too!
I love black cats too. Cats are just so cute and I love them regardless of their color!
I love cats in all colors and coat patterns too! We’ve always taken in the cats who came to the door, and a lot of them were black kitties!
Well done, Boss! Pawkisses for a Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day to all of you🐾😽💞
Boss and I thank you, Little Binky and Granny! Sending cheers and purrs and hugs!
I can get into that!
I think it’s a natural for anyone who has lived with a marvelous black kitty!
I’m a believer!!! Three years ago, I walked into PetSmart to get some supplies … and saw Ellie Mae. I wasn’t looking for a second cat – and I’d NEVER considered a black cat – but it was love at first sight. It honestly felt like she’d been waiting for me! I see all black cats differently now – knowing how much one changed my life and brought me so much happiness!
Awwww, kitties always do seem to choose us, don’t they! We’ve had so many kitties of all colors, each one special and individual, and many were black kitties. We always took in whoever came to the door.
I have never met a black cat I didn’t like!
I too have found them all charming!
Excellent celebration photo. Black cats should be appreciated they are the best. Of course, all Cats think everyday should simply be Cat Appreciation Day.
Thanks Tim, I’m happy you like the picture! Indeed, in our household and many others, every day is both Cat Appreciation Day and Black Cat Appreciation Day.
I also had a black cat. She was very, very snuggly and verbal – she loved to chat. I miss her very much. 🙂
Awww, she sounds like a real sweetheart of a cat, Lynette. I know how it is when you miss kitties.
That post is a beautiful tribute to black cats. Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day Boss! XO
Boss and I thank you Ellen, and wish you and your kitties a Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day also! XO
When I told my husband that we must give Bootsy and Alex, two of our four fur (feline) babies a treat tonight, he suggested that they MAY get a piece of the steak he’s preparing. Of course, Bitty, our long-haired old fella (who had surgery last month) and Ashley, our little girl, will insist on celebrating, too. These two tabbies want in on the fun!
Your kitties all sound so beautiful . . . that will be a fabulous BCAD celebration with all kitties getting some steak treats!
Happy BCAD! Enjoy your special day xoxox
The kitties and I thank you very much, Layla! Wishing you and your kitties Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day too! xo
We love black kitties even though there isn’t any inside here, just luck of the draw. We do have two beautiful black boys as a part of our feral family and we love them lots. Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day!
Your kitties are gorgeous as all are; we’ve always taken in whoever comes to the door and many of ours were black! Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day back atcha!
Happy Black Kitty Day Boss an Franklin!! HURRAH fore us Black catss!
Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day back atcha, Bella Dharma! Purrs and hugs!
Never had a black cat ever. Mine came to me by them picking me and not me going out and picking them, at least for the most part with a few exceptions. Lots of people swear by them and are very loyal to them. No names . . .
We came by all our cats pretty much the same way, Greg, we took in those who walked up to the door. Except for the first few that we sought out. We’ve had cats of all colors, and a lot of them were black or black tuxies. All are beautiful creatures but I’ve always thought black kitties were a little extra gorgeous.
Boss is adorable. I’ve always loved black cats and have had two over the years.
Boss and I thank you, Correne! Of our many cats, a lot were black; I’ve always thought they were the most beautiful cats, although they are all beautiful.
Our old Mr. Beaucastel was a black cat. He was a real handsome fellow, a gentleman and a scholar. 🙂
Mr. Beaucastel sounds like a marvelous cat, Lavinia, and I love the name! I’ve had quite a few scholar cats, but very few gentlemen cats. To have both in one is rare!
You’re cute Boss 😍
I’ve had some lovely black cats too, just need to look up some old pictures to show 🎞📸📽
Boss and I thank you Yvon! It would be nice to see your pictures, I love old pictures. I have tons but no time to scan them …
The same here … perhaps Annie&Charlie would like some old pictures too on their blog😺
but first some pressing matters this week like finishing my 2019 administration 😣
You’ve been fortunate to have so many wonderful kitties, black or otherwise.
Indeed we have been fortunate Indulgedfurries! We’ve always taken in whichever kitties came to the door, tabbies, torties, siamese mix, light orangies, and our Bud the Editing Cat was a deep brown. Many were black as there are a great many black kitties out there.
Black cats are so mysterious! I purchased your book, have read some of it so far. 😊
They do seem mysterious is a nice way, and to me they are the most beautiful of cats! Thank you so much, John, for getting my book, I appreciate it! Hope you enjoy!
Your welcome. Meow!!! 😻
