National Black Cat Appreciation Day

Today, 27th October 2018 is black cat appreciation day, this is a day to celebrate and promote black cats.

Black cats and black & white cats can take longer to be adopted from cat shelters than other cats. This is a real shame as they are just as adorable.

A couple of black cat facts:

The Egyptians considered black felines to be lucky.

Sailors and pirates considered the ship’s black cat to be lucky.

In recognition of today I have made some black cat lampshades out of the fabric above.  The fabric is black cat by Chatham Glynn. This is a canvas style fabric that not only looks good but is very easy to work with.

Happy Caturday.
