Well, if that was you, you're darned smart. Yes, I did do a post on black cats in August (HERE).
But if one day a year is good to celebrate black cats, then two are even better. It turns out that October 27 is National Black Cat Day in the United Kingdom, so we're going to have a bit of deja vu, except without the accents on "deja vu" because I haven't learned to do that yet.
I know some of you are big fans of black cats, as am I, so I'm thinking a second post on black cats will not be a huge imposition. (Spoiler alert: for the rest of you, at the end of the post there are some black dogs.)
First, here is the latest Simon's Cat video, which is about . . . black cats, of course:
And right here, I was going to put some pictures of the three black cats who have owned me through the years, starting when I was about eight, but I ran out of time due to the straw that broke the camel's back . . . I was handling my work deadlines okay, and I was handling my craft fair deadlines okay, and we were eating regular meals (okay, so a lot of the time lately they weren't homemade and they weren't very balanced, but they were food) and we were wearing clean clothing and our two remaining cats were complaining about not getting hours of attention but they were doing all right if you ask me . . . and then today my mama (who you may remember is getting older and has health anxieties) needed to be escorted to outpatients, and those six hours were the straw, as it were. She is fine, don't worry. And that's all I'm going to say about that.
But getting back to my very own black cats, that will have to be a post for another day.
Wishing you a lucky-black-cat kind of Friday, and in case you're a dog person and you're feeling left out, here are some nice black dogs (no, no, not that kind of black dog--the nice kind) to keep you content. And when I was looking for pictures of black dogs I learned that apparently it is as hard to find homes for black dogs living in shelters as it is for black cats.

And one more, just because of the sweet widdle bottom teefies on this little guy/gal:
Sorry about the lack of contrast; it's too late now to find new pictures! I feel like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, looking at my pocket watch and saying "I'm late! I'm late!"
See you on the other side of the weekend!
