Today, August 17, is Black Cat Appreciation Day, and I’m happy to say that I have my own mini panther. Harry turned a year old in August and is the sweetest fur boy you could imagine. Here are some photos of this handsome cat.
For those familiar with my books, you know that I like to write about cats. Although the library cat in my Cobble Cove mystery series is Siamese, I have included black cats in some of my writing. In my latest release, Sea Scope, there’s a black cat named Al who lives at the inn in the book.
I also feature a female black cat, Agatha, in my short story, Murder at Lavender Lake Library.
Here are so more photos of Harry. Do you have a handsome or beautiful black cat?
