1. What a beautiful cat!

And obviously a lucky one, since she found you...

I've had four cats in my life and it just happens that three of them have been black. And that includes my Felix who I found as a tiny kitten three years ago in a grocery store parking lot. He's grown into a beautiful cat, too...

2. Crazy Cat Man ...

lol, I too, have had four cats in my life, Luna has a sister, a white fluffy cat that I brought in from the cold last December, sleeping and crying to get it, so I brought her in, her name is Angel . I love the name Felix, that was my Dads name.

6. Awwww! that is very cool, both that you rescued Angel - and that you have ebony and ivory...

It wasn't my usual grocery store, just happened to stop there one night on my way home and I spotted the kitten on my way out. They were doing constriction at the time, very dangerous, but he obviously knew his way around already. We had a tough time catching him - I couldn't have managed it without the help of an employee who was leaving the store and his wife who came to pick him up, they were equally determined and it took us awhile. The vet said he was about seven weeks. *sigh*

And I'm not good at picking names, I've mostly adopted older pets who already had them. But I finally decided on Felix because of the song - he's "a wonderful, wonderful cat!" He answers to his name. And I love that it was your Dad's name! My dog is Jack, and that was my Dad's name, too...

7. I remember Felix the Cat !

One of my faves... My first two cats were named Carly and Simon... Awww hug Jack for me . If I get a black lab, her name will be Lily! Wish I had more time and $ for more dogs and cats.

8. I remember Felix the Cat, but it was the song that stuck in my mind

And those are very cool names - I probably have a tough time choosing names because, aside from Felix and Jack, all my other pets already had names since they were older - except for the cocker spaniel I grew up with. That puppy didn't have a name for awhile since everyone in my family disagreed. And Felix does have some white on him, a tiny patch on his neck and one white foot, LOL. And I'm fortunate that Felix loves Jack - and since Jack was fostered at the Animal Emergency Clinic, he has no issues with anyone - except sometimes with Felix if he gets too aggressive.

She's soooo pretty! Congrats on the new family addition! Well worth the drive.

13. Beautiful girl

looks just like my cat, Cleopatra (Cleo) I have tried to take photos, but she is so black and I guess my camera is not too good. You are both lucky to have found each other.

14. I know how you feel.

I rescued an 8 week old black tortoise shell from a job site this summer. She spent the first two hours of the drive perched on my shoulder rubbing her face against mine nd burying her head under my chin. I fell hard for her. Didn't even care when the vet informed me she had fleas. LoL!

I've got a pure black one too. His name's Muddy. He hates the dog, dislikes the two Russian blues, but loves the Tortie.... Black cats are great! I hope you two have a long life together.
