Oh, how I love black cats! Seeing the sun shining on the glossy fur of a black feline is a beautiful thing.
Today, I celebrate all the black kitties who have shared my life. There’s my beautiful Dickens, who left me last year to continue his journey in the stars.
And my exquisite Star, who never met a sun spot she didn’t like.
And then there’s Sammy, shown in the picture here, who showed up 8 years ago and continues to come for food every day.
I can’t get near Sammy, which made treating the terrible flea allergy he developed this year almost impossible. He was covered in awful sores, losing blood, and spending many hours on the deck scratching.
Until…a woman in cat rescue told me about CapStar, a pill that kills all the fleas on a critter in about 30 minutes and continues to work for up to 36 hours.
Sammy has been on this for over a month now. The fleas, the sores, the bald patches are all gone.
Just look at that happy cat. My, how his fur shines!!
