It’s National Black Cat Appreciation Day!

When I was in high school, we had a beautiful long-haired black cat named Salem. My mom still mourns for her.

If you have a black cat, I consider you very lucky!!

Fortunately, one of the other residents worked at a no-kill shelter, and she was usually able to find them a home.
