Of course we appreciate our black cat Samantha every day! On today’s Thankful Thursday we are especially grateful to have her in our lives. While I couldn’t find the origins of this particular day, we are happy to take this opportunity to say what wonderful pets black cats can make – no silly superstitions about bad luck here! Sam has brought nothing but good to us, and we’re taking this day to spread the word and encourage others to consider adding a good luck black cat to their lives.
In celebration of this day, the ASPCA is holding a special adoption event at their shelter in New York City. Click here to visit their website for details and see the beautiful black cats available at their shelter. Even if you are not near that area, you can observe this day by visiting your local shelter and see the cats they have up for adoption, or just help spread the word to those you know about all the cats in shelters (black and otherwise) who need homes.
Today I am happy to be sharing some recent photos I took of Sam on one of her recent outdoor adventures. It can be difficult to photograph a black cat indoors. Sam has a tendency to hang her head when I’m trying to take pictures of her. Getting her out in the sunshine lifted her head and the light made for some very nice photos, and for that I am thankful!
