Meet the cat: BLACK

Black, BB, Baby Blackinha is a girl.

No more cats! we have promised to ourselves: 7 cats is totally over quota! we were going to stop in four...


So it happened...


Black is a cat I know since she was born, on december 2005. But she was very afraid of me and I never could reach her... She was one of the many many cats that were born on my street, of the cats I couldn't manage to capture to neuter (but I am solving this situation... it's very sad to see babies disappearing... and they were just unreacheble...)


Well, back to the story, Black knew who I was, but didn't allow me to get closer. One day the worse happened... I saw her in a distance I I felt she was hurt. I tried to give her some food but she dispapeared... And the other night she was there again, and it was dark and I didn't see her very well, but I noticed she was really hurt.


In the third night I saw her agian, and I noticed her eye was very big, so I decided to rescue her and take her to the hospital...


It was done next morning by a man that took care of her too, he took her to the vet clinic near my house. And there I went, and I'll never forget the scne, how ill she was, her eye out of the place, her side all burned, she looked like a monster, and her jaws was broken, and she needed to be opertated... So we found a clinic that would o that kind of operation, and they were fabulous, and she got great.


Well, who would want a one eyed black cat?? So, there is the story of our 8th cat.


She is very sweet, and in the beginning she got along with almos all the cats. She was preety clean for a stray cat, loved the pillows and soft places! I cried the first time I saw her playing with a cat toy! She could be named Phoenix!


Everything was fine till the Bo and Shun babies were born. Black was so maternal, cleaned then, had all the maternal instinct, and Lua got very jealous about me and the babies and tought Black was their momy. So she decided to redirect her aggression to Black, that start to live on a shelf under my bed.


I tought everything was going to solve by itsef, but it didn't and the situation got worse everyday. So I moved her to the bath room and she is getting better and less scared now!


She is very sweet, she pets me and she treats me like a cat, licking me, biting my hair, she's playful but yet scared! She still gets very well with Maya and Gaia!


I love my black pearl!
