Emily - Black Cat
Hi, Denise from Hampshire, England. This is Emily, my black cat. She is adorable.
When I was young I had a back cat and her name was Dummy. It wasn't being mean- sort of... That was the only name she would respond to and she was fairly dumb.
She would do the craziest things! one time my mom was making steak and had the broiler open. She put one steak in then went to get the other and Dummy jumped in the broiler and jumped out with the steak in her mouth and her tail on fire! I loved that cat!
MY BLACK CAT "TINKERBELL"
by Diane Young
I'VE HAD TINKERBELL FOR ABOUT 5 YEARS. SHE IS MY LITTLE BUDDY. SHE ALWAYS WANT'S MY ATTENTION, SHE'S ALWAYS FOLLOWS ME AROUND THE HOUSE..
SHE GOT OUTSIDE ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO. I WAS TOTALLY DEVASTATED WHEN I COULDN'T FIND HER. THEN ONE NIGHT(ABOUT 2 WEEKS AFTER SHE WAS MISSING) I HAD JUST GOT HOME FROM WORK, AND SAW SOME EYES LOOKING @ ME UNDERNEATH A CAR THAT WAS PARKED UNDER MY CARPORT. I GOT OUT OF THE CAR AND LOOKED, THE CAT ACTED SCARED AND RAN OFF. I WASN'T SURE, BUT I WAS HOPING IT WAS HER. THEN ABOUT 20 MIN AFTER, I HAD TO LEAVE TO TAKE MY HUSBAND TO WORK, AND SAW A PAIR OF EYES UNDER THE CAR AGAIN. THIS TIME I HAD A FLASH LIGHT, AND SURE ENOUGH, IT WAS HER!! SHE WAS SCARED, AND UNCERTAIN ABOUT COMING TO ME, MY SON CAME OUTSIDE, AND WITH HIS HELP, WE WAS ABLE TO GET HER AND BRING HER INSIDE.. SHE HAD LOST SOME WEIGHT FROM NOT EATING, AND WAS UPSET FROM HER 2 WEEKS OUTSIDE.
SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN INDOOR CAT, SO THIS WAS TRAUMATIZING FOR HER.. I'M HAPPY TO SAY SHE IS BACK TO HER HAPPY SELF, AND I WENT OUT AND GOT HER A PET ID TAG THE DAY AFTER I HAD FOUND HER..
My Boys Binxx and Binxx
I have owned a total of 4 black cats. The 2 in this photo is of Zachary Binxx and Zane Binxx.
All my cats are named Binxx with a different "Z" first name. The one to the left is Zachary and is about 15 years old and is as loyal as a dog. He cannot be anywhere without me. The one to the right is Zane also nicknamed "the baby" he is about 6 or 7 years old, not as loyal but has to sleep with me every night.
They are both very large, Zachary is 20 lbs and Zane is about 14 lbs. They are lovable lap cats that are so spoiled, my mother often says when she dies she wants to reincarnated as one of my cats!
Anyway, my funny story is about Zachary, when my mother and I moved to the city she gave them Poland springs water because she thought the tap water had a strong chlorine smell to it. So I thought "go ahead and give them your water, I don't care" one day she ran out of the Poland springs and I caught her red-handed pouring my Fiji water into their bowls. Well Zachary tasted that water and would drink 1/2 the bowl in one sitting, and since then refuses any other water.
Mom thought it was ridiculous that he just liked the water and made me take him to the vet to make sure he didn't have kitty diabetes, well 267.00 later to find out he really does just likes the water. So they get Fiji water....
