Reblogged this on spike the scottish black cat. and commented:
That’s pretty darn adorable!
I love some of the old illustrations.
Years ago I learned that tortoiseshell cats and their variations are good luck, and I was owned by four of them at one point in my life. I asked them when the money would come rolling in. Now I’m owned by no fewer than 8 black cats. I think I figured out that the good fortune is not necessarily money. 🙂
I agree. Good luck is better. (I love all your black cats!)
Good fortune has arrived with every black cat who came into our lives!
Well those Scots sure have it right! I for one bring good luck to my household and I bet Little does to yours, Miss Mollie. Hugs!
