I have always wanted a black cat and I have that in Ebony although there is a little brown in his coat when the sunlight shines on him.
He has the biggest gold eyes. I was a bit disappointed that in surfing the web there are articles about black cats being mistreated around Halloween. There is a suspension of adoptions for black cats around Halloween which is really too bad. I wonder if we will ever learn and stop hurting animals for stupid reasons. Here is an article about this issue at About.com: http://cats.about.com/cs/catmanagement101/a/blackcatmonth.htm
However, there are some interesting legends about black cats: http://www.austinlostpets.com/kidskorner/2october/infoblackcat.htm
I am a lucky person and I have been very lucky in adopting Ebony. He is the sweetest cat I have ever known. He is learning to communicate with me and his little “sweak” means he is hungry….!
