Purrsday Night - Black Cats are Coool

There’s some background music for this week’s cat post. It’s “Everybody Wants to Be a Cat”

OK, the song is about jazz-playing “cats” and not actual feline cats, but it’s fun and catchy. Jazz cats can be swingin’, but of course, real feline cats should never EVER be swingin’, not literally anyway. Jax (above) is all about being a cool cat, and he’s pretty sure that everybody wants to be like him. yes, he DOES have the biggest teeth on the block, possibly even the neighborhood. He's not mean, though... he's just cooool.

I found this really cute pic of a baby panther (born in in the Miskolc Zoo, Hungary) over on Seattle P.I. (AP Photo/MTI, Janos Vajda), and I wouldn’t doubt that Jax looked like that as a kitten. We don’t know, because he adopted us when he was already 7 years old.

I also want to remember our black cat, Duncan, who died one year ago (April 12) from heart disease at age 11. We think about him and miss him every day. He was extremely loving when it came to both people and other cats, and very silly and funny too. His eyes were big and round, and his purr would fill the room. We loved that little sweetie pie of a kitty.

It's been a whole year since Duncan passed...oh it's so hard to believe...Jax sure looks ferious in that one picture...nothing is quite as sleek as a black (with a little bit of white) cat...

I think something needs to be said for us all white guys, too! Great pictures. I’d like to tell you that I’ve written a scathingly funny book, The World Is Your Litter Box, which will be out May 6th. The book is cleverly disguised as a cute cat book so humans will buy it, but is, in fact, a how-to manual FOR cats. Check it out on my website,

Loved the tune, too.
