Black Cats r the Best

Black Cats r the Best

I lost my Bombayboy cat and that is when I started having bad luck. I think the reason for that was because I did stupid things that I usually would not have done because I was so upset.

He got out and we think that he may have been killed by a wild animal since we are in the country and around many wild animals that eat little ones. Before that everything was great. He was so sweet he would sleep under the covers with me like he was a person. We would share the pillow together. He was such a character. He really had a good sense of humor also.

The Bombay cat I have now also has a great sense of humor and is also a real character. He answers the phone when it rings and will find my glasses for me, he is just amazing. Just like the other one was. Black cats just rule.They are the most awesome cats and so smart. Actually cats in general are smart animals. They are really good companions.

He follows me around the house and he comes to me for his head rubs. He has a certain meow to let me know what he wants.He knows that I will do anything for him. We have such a connection and seem to know what each other is thinking. I will cherish and treasure him and I will never ever even let him get near a door even if it is closed. I am so over protective with him. He can hardly move without getting me worried that he will get too close to a door. I'm like a mother hen with him. If he could talk like a human he would probably say ."mom give me some space to just be a cat".

He is an all indoor boy so he will stay safe that way. He means the world to me like my other Bombayboy did. I still miss our other Bombayboy so very much. My Bombayboy that I lost is our angel now.

Wonderful story.
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Black Cat Lover,

I'm sorry that you lost your original Bombay boy, but I'm pleased that another has found you.

He sounds amazing! I wish that my cat would find my glasses, or at least stop running off with them :0)

I'm not too sure that I'd want him answering the phone, he'd probably answer the people that I don't want to speak to.

I do understand the "know what each other is thinking" thing. I think after a time you can guess what your cat is about to do. But I bet they are better at anticipating our movements 'cause most of the time they are smarter than us.

Yours is a wonderful story, thanks for sharing it with us, and it is good that you are happy with your new Bombay boy.

I so wanted a Bombay.
by: Susan Davidson

When I was a child my best friend had a stunningly beautiful black cat, I did not know it at the time but the cat was a Bombay.

I was soooo jealous. I wanted nothing more than for that cat to be mine. Every time that I was invited to my friends home I did everything possible to win the affection of that black cat. I was hoping it could be persuaded to follow me home?

Well to date I have never owned a black cat, let alone a Bombay, but who knows. :)

I do very much love my elderly tabby though.

Not alone

by Briar
(UK)

I was feeling really alone, walking back through town, I was kinda in a world of my own, deep in thought when I heard a meowing next to me.

I looked down to see a black cat walking beside me, at first I just ignored it, but then it followed me for about 10 minuets so I bent down and stoked it, and figured it was just friendly, it then continued to follow me all the way home, it stopped on the pavement outside my house, and left a few minuets after I went inside.

I'm not superstitious but its almost like it sensed my loneliness and decided to keep my company, anyone know what this is suppose to mean?

You are not alone...
by: Anonymous

I think you came upon a big black bunch of sweetness and that it doesn't have to mean anything except that it gave you comfort in your time of need. Take care!

A new friend.
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Briar,

Congratulations on making a new friend.

Can cats sense the mood of humans? I guess that they often can.

Whether the black cat sensed that you were in need of company or not I don't know. Perhaps it was just a very friendly cat.

What is it supposed to mean? I think it just means the cat was friendly. Others may have a different opinion.

Thank you very much for sharing your story with us.

Subjective Cat Company Perceptions
by: Teresa

Though I tend to agree that the cat was likely friendly and perhaps looking for some human contact (in that strange, idiosyncratic, making no sense as to why or when or how way of cats), I also know that sometimes things happen in our lives that strike an inner emotional chord just when we need it. Who knows whether you drew that cat to you out of your sense of loneliness or whether it was pure chance that it happened when it did? It seems to me that the important thing is how you felt and what meaning you gave the event (and the cat.)
I say take good omens as a positive sign when they happen in your life no matter what their origin or ultimate truth. T.
