It's #NATIONALBLACKCATDAY!


I would be remiss to not mention that October the 27th (today) is known as National Black Cat Day, a "holiday" (according to a web-page) that "is all about celebrating the beauty of these sleek creatures... these felines deserve the love and attention just as much as their tabby counterparts.  Old notions have given these furry critters a bad reputation.  National Black Cat Day is about turning that reputation around..."

One of my figurines who is visiting my place to attended a vow renewal ceremony came dressed as a black cat as his way of paying homage to these creatures, he can be seen in the picture atop this entry, bearing candy corn. 
Other figurines who are also here for the aforementioned ceremony came dressed as black cats too, and thy can be seen in the pictures directly below.



And yet another figurine participated in honoring the appreciation of black cats, she came dressed as the Wicked Witch of the West (although not looking as wicked) and carried a small black cat, as seen in the next photo (where she is standing in my succulent garden). 


The three figurines whom I've just referenced have something in common besides appreciating black cats! They are all carrying "containers" rendered in the likeness of Jack-O-Lanterns!

As you may know,  an image of a Jack-O-Lantern is featured on the front of my 2018 Halloween card, which can be seen in the photograph below.


This card is available via Fine Art America (FAA). Price info can be seen in the following screen shot from FAA.

Moreover, Jack-O-Lanterns are featured in volume two of my Words In Our Beak book series.



I don't have anything about black cates — or any cat for that  matter —within my book series, but  hopefully photo-ops of black cat related figurines will show respect for this creature on their national holiday!

FALL 2018 ADDENDUM: 

Hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.



Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
