Panthers Talk How to Celebrate National Black Cat Day

November 14, 2017 Posted by Valentine - 34 Comments

I love all the special days set aside for pussy cats, though I am still waiting for the time when each day of the calendar is an official holiday for celebrating us! But until then I guess we’ll take what we can get. As you may remember, National Black Cat Appreciation Day was on August 17 and National Cat Day was on October 29. But did you know that November 17 marks National Black Cat Day for 2017? Now, I have my own idea as to how I think humans should celebrate that day, which I’ll tell you below. I have asked my furr-iends to share their ideas, too, in their own words, for this Wordless Wednesday post, which is actually a wordy one. Tee hee hee.

How to Celebrate National Black Cat Day

“Humans should celebrate National Black Cat Day because black cats are mysterious, beautiful, soft, can be accessorized with all items of clothing and furniture, can be relied on to watch over their humans through the good and the bad times and have a great tone of voice.” –Leon

“My dream National Black Cat Day would be like: in the morning there would be birdies to watch outside, my bowl would be full all day, mum&dad would pet me all day but not too much, and….. a lot of nip. That’s only thinking about myself! But I would like all cats, not only black, to have a loving home.

Every human should have at least one black cat, to worship like in Ancient Egypt. The human should make sure that on this special day the bowl is full all the time, the vacuum cleaner is put aside (or destroyed forever!!!), the toys and an appropriate-sized box should be made available for me. I would like my humans to spend the whole day with me petting me (yes belly rubs are welcome) or just sleeping by my side. Purrrrrr” –Akasha

“Then we expect you give us new boxes and kitty toys to amuse us. Not so difficult, is it? Mrow!” -Andy

“Of course, the best way for you humans to help us black cats celebrate National Black Cat day is simply this: tuna! Of course, kitty treats are fine, too.” -Dougy

“On National Black Cat Day, humans should provide us with fresh meat, poultry, and/or fish, catnip and toys, and warm soft places to sleep (humans make excellent warm soft places to sleep). Because we are awesome.” –FuzzButt

“I would like people to celebrate National Black Cat Day by considering adopting a black cat from a shelter or other charitable organization. Black cats are the least likely to be adopted. #adoptdontshop” –Licorice

“I think hoomans should celebrate [National] Black Cat Day spoiling all black cats the way they like to be spoiled. We all have our own ways. I think my mommy should send my Bengal sisfur and my Turkish Van brofur off for the day so dat her and I can be alone. I also fink we should has our own black ribbon symbol wif a paw on it and should be given special toys and food all day long.” –Malice

“Well, every sensible human should adopt at least one of us lucky black cats. We have the best looks, (see my picture and I rest my case right there). Plus we have the best temperament and are, quite simply, PAWsome!” -Phoebe

“I curl up on Dad’s lap and watch a lot of football with him this time of year. I am a Carolina Panthers fan, of course! I think all of the proceeds from ‘NFL’ game ticket sales should go to homeless cats, cats in need, and those in shelters. That would put a lasting smile on this kitty’s face.” –Valentine
