Black Cat Appreciation Day 2016!

So, I couldn't miss today, Black Cat Appreciation Day, to celebrate Black Cats, because I have an absolute darling of a kittie called Binx, who is my own little black panther; this is a picture of her (above) as she was rolling around on our decking in the sun.

When I adopted her and her mum, Silver (not a black cat, but still wonderful), from the brilliant rescue centre, Happy Endings Rescue, they said they have difficulty re-homing black cats, because people are superstitious about them, but I've always loved the melanistic little beasties :).

Binx was only 7 months when she moved in with us, and she was a pretty little bundle of nerves, but after a year with us, she is just such a loving little lady. She's always happy to see you, and if you call, she comes trotting up, tail straight up in the air. And she adores a good scratch on the top of her head.

I love my sweet little black cat, and I think everyone else should love her too :D.

If anyone is interested, this picture of Binx is available on Society6 as a print, plus all sorts of nifty accessories like phone and laptop cases, T-shirts, throw pillows, and much more, 


  1. She looks like she's having fun! I grew up with cats; we only can't have them now because my wife is allergic. Funny that those superstitions still hang around.

    1. She was enjoying herself :)

      My brother-in-law, Rob, is allergic, but he met a cat and they bonded, and that cat became their cat and, ever since, he and my sis have had cats. They have 2 savannahs now.

  2. I absolutely love Misty, my gorgeous long haired black cat. I just don't understand why people won't adopt them; she's got such an amazing personality.


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear from you. :)
