What Pet Should I Get?

The problems with pets is when they pass away. Last night we lost XO, who died of old age. Gone to the great lawn in the sky. This post is for you. XO

I was dismayed, horrified even when a reader sent me an article yesterday regarding a plague of black cats that are being surrendered to animal shelters because they do not photograph well. This article was from The Age.

What the fuck is wrong with people? Black cats are being abandoned because they do not photograph well?

I will have you know that as a proud black cat owner, they are the best pets ever! They are more like dogs than most dogs. I have trained Chuy to sit, stay, fetch a ball and roll over. But not all people like black cats. They other day the takeaway delivery lady called from her car, asking me to come out and fetch the Thai food as there was a black cat sitting in the driveway and she was frightened. FRIGHTENED BECAUSE SHE WAS SUPERSTITIOUS!

Currently there are dozens and dozens of back cats sitting in RSPCA’s all over Australia. If you want a smart and loyal feline, choose a black cat! Click here to see who needs adopting, including these dudes….

The truth is, some people are vain and stupid, believing that their lives would be richer with a cat who is more photogenic. So I put out the call to Woogs World readers to share with me a photo of their black cat (if they were lucky enough to own one). And share they did.

I give you the Black Cats of WoogsWorld!

Lets face it. Animals in your life makes the world a better place to be, no matter what colour they are. (But black cats rock, just saying….)

I would love to meet your pet!

Post a pic in the comments section and tell me all about them.
