And with one of my favorite creatures…a black cat. Found you through The Pet Museum, so glad! Reply Marcus 2013/02/27 at 22:48 (7 years ago) Oh thanx for your comment! Yes I love her too. And black cats of course. One of the Cultural Cat-bloggers lives with a black cat :D I didn’t know about the link from The Pet Museum! Thank you for telling us. You are welcome to follow us on twitter too to get reminders of every post. We try to post a new cultural cat every day. twitter.com/culturalcat Have a great day!

Right now I live with five black cats, all related but in 30 years of rescue and foster have lived with and average nine cats at a time and photographed and painted and written about each one, as well as other “cultural cats”–Twain, Eliot. I look forward to reading daily. Reply Marcus 2013/03/02 at 00:46 (7 years ago) Oh I am so jealous, 5 cats!!! I only have two. One of them is a rescue cat – Kelly. What are the names of your cats? Reply Bernadette 2013/03/02 at 03:26 (7 years ago) Marcus–I’ve rescued and fostered for 30 years and I’m always tempted to list them all, but for now my five black cats are all related, the mom and her adult children, age 5, originally named after roles in the opera “La Boheme”, but their names have evolved…Mimi is the mama, and Giuseppe (Verdi), Mewsette (Musetta), Mr. Sunshine (Luciano) and Jelly Bean (Rodolfo). Last year I lost a kitty named Kelly, my 19-year-old tortie, and a few months before her I lost my 20-year-old tortie Cookie. If you visit my blog today I featured a photo of Kelly from a few years ago, and a photo of three of the siblings, and on my personal FB page I have a photo of Cookie with all five in a really neat shot in my header. There’s always a story! Reply Marcus 2013/03/06 at 09:35 (7 years ago) LOVE the opera names! You won’t believe this but one of MY cats is also named Kelly! Here is a picture of her: http://instagram.com/p/WQ9-i0oNq1/ So sorry that you lost her. I cant imagine that sorrow since all of my cats are still alive (6years + 2 years). Does the other cats mourn also? Reply Leave a reply to Bernadette Cancel reply Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
