Welcome, Slater and family,
to TheCatSite! Glad you could make it here and hope you'll find a lot of friends and good info on the forums. We are 9 indoor, rescued, spayed/neutered felines, and as you can see, we come in just about every kind and color including tortie and ebony (oh, and by the way, Calo says, "There ARE no PLAIN black cats!!!" and his devoted servant concurs).
What could be more gorgeous than a lustrous ebony-coated mini-panther???
We don't know, but one thing for sure -- WE LOVE CATS!
