Happy National Black Cat Day!
It comes as no surprise to you, I am sure, that I’m a cat lover. (But NOT a crazy cat-lady mind you…)
I love cats of all shapes and sizes and colors, but I confess to having a special soft spot for black cats. Throughout my life, I’ve had five black cats, nearly half of the cats I have had! (Yikes, I hadn’t thought of it that way. LOL)
At one time, my husband and I had four black cats at once. Kind of drove visitors crazy. They couldn’t tell the difference between the cats and just saw a black cat come from the right when he’d just been on the left… Ok, yeah, I probably had a little too much fun with that.
Now, we just have one black cat, having lost the others to age and disease. He’s quite the character, with purr you can hear from across the room. He’s a snuggler and a sweet boy, but he’s a little peculiar. OK, a lot peculiar. Very peculiar.
I’ve never met another cat that drools. Seriously, he drools. Puddles. When he’s happy and purr-y, he starts drooling like a faucet. Then he shakes his head and slings cat spit everywhere. My poor monitor is covered in cat spit spots. Sigh.
And that’s not all. It gets even stranger. You see, I’m convinced he’s really a vampire.
Seriously, take a look at those teeth! What else explains those? Even the vet agrees that his fangs are HUGE!
Drooly, shedding, vampire cat that he is, we still love him and enjoy his goofy antics.
What about you? Have you got a crazy animal in your life? Tell me about your furbaby in the comments! Don’t forget to hug a cat in celebration of national Black Cat Day– double points if you hug a black one!
