Happy Friday the 13th! Let’s change the superstitions about our friend le chat noir…  Instead, today we will celebrate the beauty of the black cat.

Young or old, long hair or short, a black cat is the perfect addition to any household. If you are thinking about adopting a cat in the near future, consider a black cat. They may not be as flashy as some of the other cats there, but they are classic, timeless, and you know what they say: black goes with everything!

Talk about the perfect place to take a “cat” nap. What do you think this little guy is dreaming about?

My guess is a home of his own with cool humans to feed him and love him. Well, dreams do come true because he got his wish only a few days after he arrived at PAWS Chicago!

This is the tale of a yawn. Not just any yawn, but a really big, super cute cat yawn. The story begins with an investigation:

Sniff, Sniff…

Sniff, Sniff



Wow, really boring!

What a big yawn… That yawn was so big that I tired myself out.

so boring that I want to sleep

Totally exhausted from that yawn. I can’t keep my head up… Time to sleep.
