Black Cat Appreciation: Meet Velvet

How old are you?

I is 15 years old.
Miss Velvet is beautiful

Where did your name come from?

Because I am so soft.

How did you come to live with your mom?

Well, my mommy’s friend, Michelle adopted me from a shelter in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I was only there for about a week, her husband did not like me and the place she lived in didn’t allow kitties anyway. Mommy had just moved to Oklahoma and was missing her kitties so Michelle gave me to her.

What is your favorite thing to do?

Sleep! MOL!! Or maybe eat Fancy Feast..hmm…

Where do you like to sleep?

Either on my mommy’s lap or on her bed. Sometimes I make caves in mommy’s blankets.

I read you don’t like dogs, may I ask why?

Well, a long times ago, Michelle moved in with my mommy and she has a little dog. The dog would chase me and I’ve hated dogs ever since. I don’t hiss at the doggies that live downstairs as much as I used to though.

What is your favorite toy?

Oh, I loves my beanie bunny. My mommy gots it for me when I was a baby and when mommy isn’t around I carry it around and pretend it is my kitten. It makes me feel better.

Have you ever done any modeling?


What would you like to say to anyone who is scared of adopting a black cat?

That’s just silly. Black cats are the most beautiful kitties in the world!!  We go with everything and we are so shiny and soft!

Is there anything else you would like to say about yourself or your mom?

Yes! I am the most beautiful kitty in the world and you should all worship me like they used to do in Ancient Egypt!!  Oh..and I love my mommy..she is the bestest mommy there is. Oh..and I love my Bossy Boo!!!
Ok, I is done.
