By Hitchcock the Cat of the Bad Luck Cat Mysteries by Kay Finch
You may have heard of me – Hitchcock, the bad luck cat. Sigh. I know I’m not bad luck, and my owner Sabrina knows I’m not bad luck. Some people in the Texas Hill Country like me, but there are too many who go out of their way to avoid me. Who in their right mind believes that a cat can be bad luck anyway? Sadly, too many people. I encourage them all to learn more about me – I was quite helpful to Sabrina in THE BLACK CAT SEES HIS SHADOW and she might not be here to tell the tale if not for my heroic action.
Sabrina absolutely appreciates her black cat – me. This Thursday, August 17th, is the official BLACK CAT APPRECIATION DAY. I encourage all of you to spread the word and tell everyone you meet that black cats are the most wonderful, loving, affectionate, great, incredible, excellent, marvelous, amazing, brilliant, fabulous, fantastic, terrific, superb pets you could possibly ever own. Did I say awesome? Well, we are.
Did you know there is also a HUG YOUR CAT DAY? Guess we missed that back in June but you can hug me any day of the year. I hear there’s a TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET DAY later this month – don’t mind if you skip that one. I don’t mind celebrating NATIONAL DOG DAY on the 26th with my friend Angie, the yellow Lab. Sabrina mentioned NATIONAL BOOK LOVERS DAY on the 9th, and since she’s a writer and her BFF, Tyanne, is a bookseller, I’m sure I’ll hear all about NATIONAL READ A BOOK DAY next month.
Would you believe that today is CREAMSICLE DAY – what’s up with that? How about I take the “cream” part and you can have the “sicle.”
