National Black Cat Day 2018
by Simon Tofield
Every year on the 27th October cat lovers in the UK show their appreciation for black cats. It’s a great time to get people thinking about these gorgeous furry friends and share their stories and photos. As a black cat owner myself I couldn’t celebrate this special day without a mention to Teddy and Poppy, my beloved pets!
Adopt a black / black & white kitty!
Black is beautiful!
Teddy (the Kitten inspiration)
Poppy is the mother of little Lilly and is around 1 1/2 years old. She has a beautiful sleek, black fur and although very small she can jump 5 feet in the air while playing. She is very much an out side cat and an expert mouser. She must have honed this skill to feed her kittens before she was rescued, as it is hard wired into her personality. Nowadays she likes to bring little ‘gifts’ she finds in the garden to her daughter Lilly.
She is very affectionate and will roll around on the ground for attention and extra tummy rubs. Although tiny in stature she loves food and is quite greedy. In true Simon’s Cat style when feeding time comes she will be the first to empty her bowl and then try to eat the other cats’ food.
