Please don't do this to me. This is the first time in years that I haven't had a black cat! Well, let me just tell you a bit. Old Blackie saved us from a house fire, Blackie lived 16 years and was my special baby, Pixie was the loudest purrer who ever purred, and Nibs was a little character who sounded like a Siamese, (she's the reason I now have Siamese cats; I missed the conversation!) and if I had a scanner you'd see four of the best cats who ever lived!
