The Black Cat Who Only Wanted to be Loved: A Sad Cat Story with a Happy Ending, by Rosa Silva
From Amazon: Black cats mean bad luck… or do they?
Abandoned by his owner on the side of a road, little Pepper must go on a journey of self-discovery. Will the little black cat embrace his own identity, or will he change the color of his fur to find a family that will love him?
You will love this touching and inspiring story about the power of friendship and the importance of acceptance and self-love.
My Review: A gentle and kind tale of acceptance and love.
The title says it: The Black Cat who Only Wanted to be Loved. It’s a plight all cat people are familiar with, the stigma and superstition that goes along with black cats, making them harder to adopt out of shelters.
Silva’s story starts with a couple and a conflict: The wife loves her black cat Pepper, but the husband blames the cat for his run of bad luck. Heartlessly, the husband dumps little Pepper far away from his home. Pepper’s subsequent adventures in the new neighborhood keep the reader on their toes. Pepper overcomes fears, makes friends, and learns lessons, ones we would all be better off practicing ourselves.
