I love black cats.
It always amazes me when I hear how hard it is for black kitties to find good homes. There is something so magical about them!!
Last year I lost my precious black cat, Dickens. He had such a soaring spirit – it filled our home with love and laughter.
And just a few weeks ago I had to say goodbye to Sammy, the outside black kitty I’ve been feeding for 8 years. One day he didn’t show up, right around the time a very large coyote started prowling through the neighborhood.
The loss of these two precious kitties has left a huge hole in my world – both inside and outside my home. I thought it would be fun to celebrate my dear furry friends with this bench, which I painted in their memory. I've told my black cat, Star, and her sister, Molly, that they are most welcome to sit on the bench - Dickens and Sammy would want that.
Looking at this bench makes me smile...Dickens and Sammy would want that, too.
