Photo Hunt - Mostly Black


This week's Photo Hunt - Mostly Black was easy for us - we have lots of all black cats bu some of us are almost black.  This is Woody here.  He is a black and grey tabby.  His back is solid black with grey under. He is very good at camouflage - he can be sitting very still in the open and Mom won't even see him cuz he seems to blend in with all the surroundings.  (We think he can make himself invisible!)


 Now Chica here is a black tortoiseshell - mostly black with lots of orange and tan in her coat. She is napping so we won't bother her after all at 19 she deserves to do what she pleases.



And finally Joey is another tabby with lots of black on his back but with tan and grey.  We think they call that a ticked tabby but he is anything but...just a very laid back loverboy.

Please help us find a home for Avon - her info and photo are on the sidebar.  She still has not been adopted from a local shelter.  All her kittens found homes but not her.

Also Mom is having a birthday this week on March 3 and will be doing a commentathon to raise money for Marg of Marg's Pets so do come back by and join in.  For each comment she will donate 55cents to help our her vet bills. (Cuz that is how old she is) Recently Marg's Lucky has not been feeling well and is on meds.

Have a great weekend!

We love those thin black strips like someone has taken eyeliner and rubbed along all the prettiest furs as a highlighter.

This is an easy Photo Hunt theme for lots of us kitties! I only wish it were just as easy for Avon to find a home... I am purring for one to show up soon!

Love the kitty pix. I'm kinda partial to black kitties, and the almost black are such beauties it's hard to say who is the most beautiful.

Great shots all.

Marg said...

Look at all you tabbies and torties. We love our tabbies. They seem to have a great personality too. Everyone sure looks happy in those pictures. We sent you an email back. Thanks so much.

Marg said...

What great looking almost black cats. We love tabbies and torties around here. Glad it has gotten a little warmer for you up there. Got your email and wrote you back. Have a super Saturday.

Brian said...

Y'all covered that theme quite nicely! Oh, a commentathon birthday? We'll be there!!!

AFSocksScylla said...

Woody, Socks is good at camouflage too, we calls him our ninja cat. You tabbies must be born knowing how to be invisible

John S. Mead said...

Hmmm... cats that are able to become invisible... yet another bit of proof that cats are trying to take over the world ;-)

A commentathon birthday post to help Marg's pets is a great idea - we will be back!! Our Lucy is quite good at blending in but Hannah tends to stand out with her white ruff.
Have a great weekend
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Your tabby kitties look like mine. I love sleeping photos, they look so peaceful.

srp said...

Beautiful kitties... all of them. And yes, at 19 they may certainly do as they please. My really old cat doesn't look this good.
