Our Halloween Cats...

This is Issy's favorite Holiday...probably because she is a black cat but I think more importantly because it is a Holiday that she gets to share with her "cousin" Guinness.

Issy and Guinness live in the same building (different floors- of course-because you can only have one princess cat per floor!). They share a mutual admiration for their beautiful black coats- Guinness being short haired and Issy being long-haired...as I have said before black cats are definitely a breed to themselves...

Of all the different cat colors, the black cat is more closely related to their wild ancestors and it is believed that black cats were first seen in the wild before they became domesticated cats. Hence, these cats carry a reputation for having a wild and unpredictable side. They can be both stubborn and friendly at the same time, and although they are quite independent creatures, they also thrive on the companionship of people and other cats and household pets. Be warned though, Black Cats have a tendency to roam around and can cover many miles in a short period of time. Therefore, if you are going to allow your Black Cat to be an outside cat, you should make sure that he carries proper identification.

I find this above information very funny..if you know my Issy, she is a persnickety little kitty who really only likes (or should I say trust) her Mommie and Daddy and being the princess-girl she is- really looooves Daddy. If you are anyone else- don't think of getting close even if she approaches you and gives you a friendly leg rub...no hiss warning applies here, she goes right to the extended claw swoop!

When we go to visit our friends where Guinness lives, she usually runs up to us and I swoop her up and we have a momentary love-fest...minutes later I go back to give her a pat and she turns and gives me "the look" as in who are you!?! and a hiss...

...funny creatures these black cats! But once you have one- you love 'em dearly- quirks, hisses, and all because as unpredictable as they can be, they can be that sweet and loving.

So from Issy and Guinness a"Happy Halloween" to all!
