This is a guest spot by Little Monkey’s Arch Nemesis, Princess Morbo, my daughter Pix’s cat.
I have always thought black cats are lucky. Not everyone thinks this way.
If you go to a rescue centre, you will find an inordinate number of black cats waiting to be adopted.
People pick all the pretty and unusual colours first. Friday 27 October was Black Cat Day to raise awareness of the problem. Check out this Simon’s Cat cartoon.
Who could resist those eyes?
It is the same for black dogs. They are the ones always left there at the rescue organisations. Animals have no idea what colour they are. Isn’t it about time we also became colour blind?
For some fun Black Cat facts check out this little clip of Cole the Black Cat.
Halloween is not really celebrated here in SA, though I do have two bowls of sweets ready on the dining table, just in case.
Of course, if no-one comes again, like last year, I guess I’ll just have to eat them all myself. It’s a hard task, but someone has to do it!
