This is our fourth post this week! But Mummy wouldn't help us till she had finished her Own Blog, because she said We had already posted THREE TIMES this week and now it was her turn. Imagine such selfishness! As if her scribblings about Mewsick could be as Impawtant as what We have to say!
Kitties! Today, August 17th, is Black Cat Appreciation Day. This is a Special Day for Black Kitties, such as Myself (Trixie). Did you know that Black Cats are often the last to be adopted, and are often put to sleep because homes cannot be found for them? And why? Because of some silly superstition that We bring Bad Luck. At least, that is what they believe in America.
Mummy can't understand this. In Britain, where she was born, Black Cats are believed to bring Good Luck.
Furthermore, in Ancient Egypt (where they knew a thing or two), black cats were believed to purr-sonify the goddess Bast, and thus, to bring Good Fortune. Those Ancient Egyptians had the Good Sense to worship Us and anyone who killed a Cat was put to death for sacrilege.
So let's hear it for all the Black Kitties of the World.
I ask you - do I look as if I would bring anything but the best of luck to anyone who had the good fortune to meet Me?
So, if you're looking to adopt a kitty - go out and get a black panfur :-)
Trixie the Cat Goddess
P.S. I second that - although we Tabby Tiggers are also pretty cool ;-)
