Black cats have a bad reputation. It is said that it is hard to find homes for black cats because of this. They are often associated with Friday the 13th, bad luck, and Halloween. We can assure you it is not true; they are not bad luck. We are blessed with two black cats.
In 2010, we rescued Grizelda & Chloe Jo at two days of age. At six weeks, we decided they were staying with us. They fit just right into our family.

Baby Chloe Jo
They are totally opposite in every way. Grizelda is long-haired and very fluffy. An old soul, she is a "thinker". She is serious, cautious, and private. Grizelda is only social with those she knows well, like Mom & Dad.

Chloe Jo is short-haired and sleek. She is outgoing and impetuous. She loves everyone, and only wants to be loved back. Chloe Jo is our baby. She is always into something, and has a unique perspective.

Grizelda & Chloe Jo have always been close and remain that way still, though they love Maggie and Stella, too. They are mirror opposites, but we are blessed by both of these wonderful black cats. We love them and wouldn't have it any other way.
Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day!
