Hi everybuddy. I bet you’re surprised to see me here with Ernie today. Yeah, I know I give those boycats around here a hard time. But today is kinda a special day. It’s Black Cat Appreciation Day. So in honor of it, I’m graciously sharing my sunpuddle with my favorite black cat, Ernie.

Cats in the sun

Ernie…I’m sorry black cats get such a bad rap.

Thanks, Zoey. I know…being a black cat isn’t always easy…but I really think it’s getting better for us. People are learning that black cats aren’t evil or bad. We’re just like any other cat…just a different color.

Humans have some pretty ridiculous ideas. I’m glad to hear that those ideas are changing, Ernie.

Yeah, me too, Zoey. Maybe soon we won’t need days like Black Cat Appreciation Day. Though I kinda like having my own special day.

So how’s that sun feel, Ernie?

Feels good, Zoey. Thanks for sharing it…but you do know I was here first so I’m really sharing my sunpuddle with you.

Well, Ernie…I can see color doesn’t affect you being a typical boycat…a real pain in the you-know-what sometimes. But despite that…you’re still my favorite black cat.

Black Cat Lives Matter

Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day!

  1. Now with Ellie, I’m come over to the dark [cat] side … and I don’t have any regrets! Ellie’s such a blessing.

  2. Black cats are the best. We have a black cat here and he is just the best. Zoey, glad you are sharing with Ernie. You all have a super nice day.

  3. It’s nice of you two to share the sun puddle, regardless of who was there first. You are an especially handsome black cat, Ernie!

  4. Ernie is one our favorite black cats too

  5. Guys, if you all and Mommy doesn’t mind, I would like to use that Black Cat Appreciation Day badge before long? And Zoey, what a good girl.

  6. Zoey, we always knew you had a sweet side. And Ernie, you are very handsome!

  7. Well, there was a black cat SOMEWHERE in my genetics, that’s for sure. I don’t think Tuxies were born being black and white all by themselves, right?

  19. When I first used the black cat lives matter hashtag last year I got chastised for being racist (shocking but true!). but someone created an IG account and the hashtag is used widely but #blackcatstellall is more popular. We’re doing a giveaway on IG @blackcatsofIG and so glad Ernie is featured in our book.

  35. Hey Zoey, male cats are not the only cats that are a pain. Tyebe is a girl cat and she is one barnacle on my butt. A barnacle that bites back. Actually she bites first then askas, “Who did I bite?” She’s a white cat ta boot.


  36. Oh boy, Sam is so po’d at me for missing this day! It was sweet of you to cover it for Ernie, Zoey, especially considering he’s a PIA boy cat! 🙂

  37. Awww Zoey and Ernie, you two are so sweet together! It’s nice of you to share sunpuddles, no matter who were there first 🙂
    Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day, Ernie!
