My Litte Black Dooney Bug
by Kati Stinson
I got my black cat a little over three years ago. I named her Dooney, after my love of Dooney & Bourke handbags. I bought her from a local person that had a litter of four kittens. She was the only girl in the litter and all of her brothers were also black.
I was initially looking for a male cat, as I have never owned a female and thought I preferred a male. All that changed when she looked at me!
She looked different than her brothers, fluffier coat, huge green eyes and very small. I immediately picked her up and knew that I had to have her. She looked at me and I laughed because her eyes were so huge they looked bigger than her whole head!!
I checked her, thinking there had to be a white patch on her somewhere.....and none! The only thing that was not black on her was ONE whisker, it was white. I loved that about her, her one white whisker!
She has been so amazing, her white whisker fell out when she was about four months old and she is left all black. Her birthday is actually on Valentines day, and I feel like she is my lucky, love bug kitty!
Her nickname is DuneBuggy, and she is the sweetest most loving cat I have ever had! Her coat remains fluffy and medium length, and her eyes remain huge and beautiful!
I like to think that she is my lucky black cat. She is so beautiful and loving, she would change any ones superstitions about black cats!!
