I read on my Facebook that today is officially Black Cat Appreciation Day. Who gets to decide these things, I wonder? It's a good thing, though; black cats apparently have more trouble getting adopted - and that's just silly.
The top picture is Nano KayKay while the picture above is the feral cat known as One-Eye. As you can see, black cats aren't really totally black if you put them in bright sun to show off their ginger highlights. But in any other circumstance, you'd say that they were all-black. In my experience, they are also smart and friendly.
So here's to all you black cats out there ...and the fans thereof. Let your inner panther shine through.
