I'm sharing my day with Ernie

Hey, I bet you’re surprised to see Ernie with me today. Well, today is Black Cat Appreciation Day and even though Ernie can be a real pain in the butt sometimes, he is my favorite black cat. So to show my appreciation, I decided to share my blogging day with him.

Y’know…I don’t understand why black cats get such a bad rap and tend to be overlooked in shelters. They’re no different than any other color cat…well, maybe not as handsome as orange cats…but they’re not scary or evil. They’re actually pretty cool.

I said I'd share my day...but not my napping spot

Okay, Ernie…I said I’d share my blogging day with you…I didn’t say anything about sharing the mini-cat tree. How ‘bout you find some other place to nap?

Rats…I don’t think he’s moving anytime soon. *sigh* I wonder when Orange Cat Appreciation day is….

  1. Rosie is going to be super duper mad when she discovers today is Black Cat Appreciation Day and somehow our silly assistant didn’t know about it.

  2. You are so sweet, Wally, sharing your day to give Ernie a shout-out for Black Cat Appreciation Day. And I’m with you, Wally – I don’t understand all that silly taboo surrounding black cats. They’re just as purrfect as all kitties! Purrs!

  3. Well, we didn’t know either that today is Black cat appreciation day. I have three black cats here that are going to be furious with the Mom.But black cats are just the very best of all. We love our black cats here.

  4. You are a very handsome housepanther. And it’s kind of you, Wally, to share your day.

  5. Ernie is a very fine black cat and quite the handsome dude and we’d like to thank you for being the spokesman for Black Cat Appreciation Day. BTW Hannah says can she only be classed as a two toner one!

  6. WE think Ernie is a fine black cat too. My human uncle had one many years ago. She and her sister are the ones who taught mom all about the wonders of cats….Mom was raised with wolfies. MOL
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. I’m lucky that I’m an only child … though I wish I were a black cat! They are super cool! And I hear chicks dig them 😉 ~Bear Cat

  8. Wally, guess you and Ernie come as a set! Both of you are handsome, btw.

  13. How nice of you, Wally, to share your blogging day with Ernie! Black kitties are pawsome just like kitties with other colors! Happy black cat appreciation day. I think you need to create orange cat appreciation day 🙂

  14. Mama’s first kitty was an orange kitty named Fiat because she found him trying to get her car fixed and he was WONDERFUL, like you, Wally. But black cats can be pretty cool, too. Just hard to find at night when they are out and don’t come home!

  15. We don’t know why black cats get such a bad rap either, but the ones we have know have been super pets. M’s first kitty was all black. We know lots of black cats and they are great – just like any other kitty.

  16. We love black kitties around here, even though ours are dilute black (grey/blue) MOL!

  17. I think you will have to share your mini scratcher today, Wally!
