Lillie will be in virtual attendance.
Did you know that black cats (and dogs) are the last to be adopted at the animal shelter?
I have seen people actually step back from a cage containing a black cat; my own very superstitious Irish grandfather would turn around and go home if he saw one.
When volunteering at the Durham shelter, I would make sure the black cats had light colored bedding so they would stand out (often they would be on the bottom row of cages, making them extra hard to be seen, which was perhaps a coincidence.)
My little black cat LOVES to be brushed - which is good because she is a hair manufacturing machine.
She knows the word "brushing" and will run to the ottoman:
|Assuming the position|
|Tummy brushing position|
|I 'll give you thirty minutes to stop|
|Sleek and silky|
I love this song because the accordion reminds me of Amelie, which is the happiest movie I know.
