Are you superstitious? Have no fear, black cats are harmless with only with a little edge!
Sleek, mysterious and those piercing yellow eyes - that is why I picked Luna out of a litter of 8 kittens at the SPCA. One thing to keep in mind, shelters do not adopt out black cats during the month of October due to Halloween.
Now you are comfortable with black cats, I will let you know what it's like to have an indoor cat. Indoor cats require more attention than normal as they have no stimulation from the outside world. Here are my tips for the indoor cat...
1. Place a cat post near a window. This will allow your cat to get some stimulus from staring outside the window (Luna loves watching the squirrels) and a place to sleep in the sun.
2. Toys, lots of toys! Indoor cats need exercise and toys help facilitate activity during the day. Luna's favourite toy is her laser pointer - oh my she goes NUTS for it and I get a laugh as well!
3. Grooming. Invest in a quality brush for you cat and give them a good grooming once a week at least! Luna loves her Saturday morning brushing - on her cat post but of course.
4. Bonus - Please ALWAYS keep your cats, and other animals, indoors on Halloween!
In conclusion, indoor cats require activity and black cats....well they go with everything ;)
