I have posted this as a tribute to my sweet cat Shimmeree who crossed over Rainbow Bridge yesterday. That is her in the pic.

Cats are beautiful, no matter what their color. Stupid superstitions need to left far in the past.

Love black cats+have 6 incredible silly affectionate black rescues. There is nothing different in the color of a cat+just wish people would get this. It's maddening knowing they're constantly ignored at shelters+are the 1st to be pit down. Give blackies a chance! Thx Cher

I once had a beautiful long haired black cat named Spooky who passed away at 14 months. Loved him with all my heart. Shimmeree was a gorgeous cat. Thnx for sharing Cher...she'll be waiting for you at RB.

I love black cats, I have a feral that has hung around my carport for the last 3 years--solid black and very beautiful. He won't let me near him but he stays here. Black cats or black anything is not bad luck. I wish people would get over it and move on and stop persecuting them.

So sorry to hear of her passing. But may the many wonderful memories be a blessing to you. Sometimes I think they stick around for awhile in spirit to make sure you are OK.

Black cats are my favorite ~ I've had so many! And the reds, and the whites too. And the tabbies ~ I love the tabbies....

My last two cats were both black, though the male was smokey gray when I got him. They were brother and sister and as the male got older, he got darker. By 9 months they were identical except for size. Each had two white whiskers on the left side and 8 white hairs on their chests. Just barely weaned, we thought they were both male, so my son named the smallest Frodo, after the Lord of the Rings hero. When we saw it was a female, she became Litttle Bits, since her brorther was Big Guy. Kind of sounds like a comedy team...
Thanks for sharing and know that your sweetie is across the bridge, hving fun, with my two loves.
