It’s A Black Cat Bonanza!

You guys!

It’s Friday. The 13th. While most people might be fleeing from Jason Voorhees at this point in time, I thought instead that we would celebrate black cats! It’s a black cat bonanza! Except minus the guns and desert wagons! I’ve even painted myself to match for the celebration:

Let’s begin with this film by CATastrophes. We have specially released a film today to celebrate the magic of black cats. It stars Hemingway as Magic Kevin. His people have had some seriously good luck since they’ve adopted him, but the minute they leave him behind to get neutered, their lives go haywire. Check it out and please share!

May I present the WORLD PREMIER of Lucky CATastrophe!

You may have noticed that fabulous black kitty there called Magic Kevin. Well, his real name is Hemingway , he has six toes, and he’s available for adoption from Chicago Cat Rescue. We hope that our film will help him find the home he deserves! Check out CATastrophes on Monday to see a video all about him!

You may also have noticed from Lucky CATastrophe that we filmed at Save A Pet IL in Grayslake, IL. They have LOTS of black kitties. For instance, meet Astrologer. He’s FIV Positive-ly huggable! Save A Pet recommends he be placed with other FIV+ cats or very laid back cats because he can occasionally get a bit out of hand with like-minded kitties and wants to always be dominant. He would also make a great only cat in a house with no kids. He loves walking on a harness and is ready to play!  He has a few allergies, but who doesn’t these days?

He can see into your future...and it includes him, a couch, and a bag of treats.

Astrologer is available to adopt or for permanent foster. You can meet him here!

Next up, we have this fabulous film by Cole and Marmalade called BLACK CATS RULE! Cole is a huge supporter of black cats and a good friend of mine, so I hope you’ll enjoy his video.

 

And, if you feel like giving a black cat-themed gift to someone you really love, check out this super cool Black Cats Shaker! It’s made by Kate from Hauspanther for The Tiniest Tiger and features 100% organic catnip.

I can smell it from here!

Get one here!

That’s it, everyone! Thank you for coming to our black cat bonanza. I hope that you’ll take part in sharing these cool videos and kitties. Let’s help some black cats find homes!

Love,

Crepes.

Tuesday Haikusday: Black Cats

I figure I’ll keep the black cat theme going this week. Eh hem…

Wherever I go, there you are.

 Black cats are colored

like sleek ninjas of the night.

Footsteps in the dark.

Hunting, eating, sleep.

They cannot be seen at all.

Mission accomplished.

Dressing up nicely?

Black’s for any occasion.

You will wear their fur.

MAN I made them sound SO cool. Here’s what I’d look like if I were a black cat:

if crepes were blackAnd in case you missed yesterday’s video, we have reenacted one man’s story: I peed on my cat.

Has this ever happened to you? Because I had to play the cat that got peed on and man, that was the toughest role I’ve ever had to take on. It took all my strength as an actor not to laugh during that scene. Anyway, here it is.

Love,

Crepes.

Confession Friday: I Wish I Was #Magicats

It’s true. Magic cats do exist, and they exist in the form of black cats. I’ve been going on about black cats for three days now because I want a world that has equality amongst all colors of cats. Black cats, especially in October, are maligned as evil and part of witchcraft, and it’s just not true! They are, however, magical, because how else could you get a photo like this:

That’s not even photoshopped! That’s how cool my brother Niles looks when he’s in front of a black background!

I’m writing this post today to invite people to join me in my quest to get #magicats to trend on Twitter and Facebook. I want to see everyone, this month especially, leave notes and photos about how awesome their black cats are. (I’m @refrigeratorcat) Let’s get this out there and start changing black cats into the cats everyone wants to adopt!

Love,

Creeps (And Niles)

Umm.. obviously magic is happening here. How else can this possibly occur?!
