It's Black Cat Appreciation Day!

If you read my blog, you know that I share my home with a few kitties. Since today is Black Cat Appreciation Day, I'd like to tell you about my (mostly) black cat pals, Wren and Sparrow. I know, very silly names for cats *looking at mom*.
This is my pal Denise holding them when they were still very young, looks likes she's about to juggle them, BOL! Mom needs to take more pictures of them, because their fur is so dark, she doesn't think the photos do them justice. They both came to our home "accidentally". Wren arrived the day after Christmas 2011, just before a huge blizzard was about to hit the northeast. That's how he got his name! December 26th is "Wren Day" in Ireland. A few days later, his sister showed up. Mom heard her mewing among the snow piles from the storm. She knocked on a few doors, but nobody knew where she could have come from. Mom called her Stimpy at first (from one of mom's favorite cartoons, "Ren and Stimpy"), but we decided that she's really too pretty fur that name! Sparrow seemed more like her personality ('tho I think she's a Ninja at heart!). Mom promises to get some better pictures of these two very soon! Thanks fur stopping by!


  1. What a lovely adoption story and it is also nice to know how they got their unique names! Now, who's the third kitty? Your friend Denise's cat, perhaps!

    1. ooh, we have 3 other kitties! Toby, our senior (at 20 years young), Mr. Marmalade and Ms. Tigger.

  2. What an interesting story. I would say Sparrow is one lucky kitty to have found such a good home.

  3. Very sweet story. Have a wonderful Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Yes, both are lucky kitties! We enjoyed your story and are so glad you gave those two a loving home...

  5. So glad you were able to welcome Wren and Sparrow into your home - along with your other kitties; go, Toby! I love black cats - they are so sleek and cheeky, in my experience.
