Midnight Monday with Mamacita

It's a tight squeeze but I got in the cat tree!

I am house panther Mamacita hosting the blog today.  Mom asked me to talk about Best Friend's Animal Society's Back in Black 2 - the second annual month long effort to showcase black dogs and cat in shelters and to get them adopted!

Black pets have a harder time to find new homes. Because many people adopt from online photos it hurts us  cuz we don't show up well in photos.  Ask Mom.  She tries so hard to take my picture and not many come out showing me in my best light. I have stunning eyes but they never seem to show up in my photos.  But I do have some very endearing qualities....

I love my ESS and often fall asleep on it.  I like the way it fits my portly shape.  For some reason I like to lay with my front paws up on something and this works fine.

I love my pal Joey.  He is a super snuggler and lets me use him for a pillow anytime I want.  I also have a habit of getting all excited and running in front of Mom when she is rushing to get ready for work.  She keeps saying "Look out, look out" for me to get out of the way so she won't step on me.  I think I thought that was my name at first cuz she yells it so much.  But I know it's not.

I am a plus sized girl, as you can see here.  I love to eat but I also like to scoop out a piece of dry food and bat it around on the floor.  That's fun!  It drives Mom nuts cuz she always steps on the food and crunches it to pieces.

I like to play with nip toys, boxes, the red lazer dot...just about anything.  I even like wrassling...with my daughter Rosa.  We look like two sumo wrestlers when we go at it on the floor.  Thump, thump, bang!  Rosa is my best buddy and you will hear from her later this week.

I am kinda shy too being a feral so I don't like to be picked up but will get up on the sofa or bed and sit next to Mom.  Sometimes I even get on her lap...but not too often.

I hope this shows how even feral black cats can be fun to have around the house.  Every house needs a panther!!!  Adopt black pets!!!  They deserve a chance too.

Oh and P.S.  Thanks for coming to the party for Yoko.  She was thrilled and had the time of her life!

Great job, Mamacita! We personally LOVE black kitties and woofies, too. We think the Back in Black 2 campaign is awesome.

Mamacita, you are a beautiful sleek miniature panther! Purrs!

It's easy to see you are a beautiful house panther and a joy to be with!

I think black kitties are awesome, and you are proof, Mamacita!

Dear Mamacita,
you are a busy girl, lots of things going on there.
I love your pictures, mainly the box composition because I also love boxes!
I'm sending love to all black dogs and cats, good energies and good luck!

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww beautiful and thoroughly gorgeous Mamacita! You are just sublime! Me and Charlie will never understand why black beauties like yourself in need of good homes are not given the chance! So yay for this wonderful event!! Take care

Since I'm half black and half white, we're partial to black cats here too. More people need to give us a chance.

Our Mum's a walk over for black cats - she loves them even when they have scruffy white ruffs!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Hannah and Lucy said...

I (Hannah) am black and white and proud of it. Mum once had an all black cat called Max and he was her first choice at the cattery.

You really are special and that thing about black cats being unlucky is just plain goofy!

Hi there Mamacita. Sure is nice to meet you. Good job telling all about adopting black cats and the event at 'Best Friends'. Well done. We are all for helping black cats to get adopted.We sure love our black cats here. Take care and have a great week.

Mamacita you did a cantatastic job on the blog today!
We had a house panypther in our family for 18 years. Her name was Ursula and she owned my uncle! She was so sweet too!


You are one gorgeous ebony girl.
Our Mom knows the challenge of photographing dark cats. We are mostly black and she has to take 100's of pictures before she is satisfied with just a handful. But she loves black kitties and doesn't understand why anyone wouldn't.

Mamacita, you are a beautiful house panther!! We love black kitties...but then again, we're a bit partial. ;)

Katie Isabella said...

Oh Honey, dearest are just so beautiful a house panfur. I could look at you all day. xoxoxoxo

Debra Taylor said...

You are so right about black cats having a harder time finding new homes. We have had that trouble with a few fosters in the past. Once we had a white cat with apricot markings - she was so easy to place with a wonderful new owner.

And Momacita is so pretty!
