If you wanna learn more about where I live Mommy visited the Pascagoula River Audubon Center and she did a post about it, you can read Part 1 here.
Well I have done what none of the other cats in the household have, I AM A PUBLISHED AUTHOR, IN A BOOK. So OK, we all contribute to this blog so we are all sorta of authors, but this is a real book and my story is in it. A lot of my friends stories are in it too and there were even some black cats in there that I hadn't meet before.
This is what my Mom said about the book.
In the interest of full disclosure my cat Yin's story is featured in the book, but even if she wasn't I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book. It gets 5 stars and then some. Some of the stories made me laugh, some of the stories made my cry but they all touched my heart and I fell in love with each and every one of the cats featured in the book, and the photographs were outstanding.Black Cats Tell all is a "celebration" of all that is positive about black cats, with the hope of once-and-for-all reversing negative stereotypes that to this day are still far too prevalent. In most cases the stories are narrated by the cats themselves. A portion of the proceeds from this book will help Shelter Cats. I was shocked to learn that black cats got a bad rap June 13, 1233 when Pope Gregory IX issued a papal bull proclaiming black cats were an incarnation of Satan. Leading to many black cats being killed.
This book aims to reverse the negative stereotypes that many people still hold about black cats.

And be sure to check out my story. ~Yin, meowing for Black Cats everywhere
Vitex unless she wanted to impress you with the fact that she actually weeded around it. Alas we have gotten so much rain the Mommy was unable to keep up with the weeding and the flowerbeds look like jungles. We don't mind but apparently the people do.
And in honor of Black Cat Appreciation Day we are showcasing our lovely Yin.
Princess Yin is a big help to Mom outdoors and spends most of her day on the back porch or the jungle gym. She makes sure that varmints stay out of the greenhouse and keeps an eye on all of Mommy's plants.

PeeS: Since Caturday Art got canceled I am going to share another selfie of Socks that we posted Saturday. And everybody lets give Athena and her Mom some comforting purrs I suspect they could use them.
