When I had my first kitty of my own, she was a black tuxedo cat...unfortunately after her first litter she died 2 days later...we cared for the kitties until they were old enough to give them to good homes...all except for one. That was the beginning to the black cat era for me. For a couple of years I was owned by two black cats and then two white one's joined our family! I love all cats, but black cats have always been like a charm for me. Ironically, I have nine cats at the moment. I'm currently looking for my little black beauty...(or whomever drops in the neighborhood first!) hahahaa!
