Black Cat Appreciation Day | 17 August

10 Reasons Why Black Cats Should Be Appreciated Today and Every Other Day of the Year

1. Black Cats are less likely to be adopted from animal shelters for a variety of reasons. 

2. They have beautiful eyes. Black cats have high melanin levels causing their eyes to be golden in colour. 

3. In Japan, it is believed that a woman who owns a black cat will have many suitors. 

4. They always look silky and clean as dirt is camouflaged. 

5. Contrary to popular belief, in many countries black cats are considered good luck. 

6. They match with everything! 

7. They’re fantastic hunters so your rat population will always be under control. 

8. They’re just like Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon.

Although we do not know a great deal about the historical Prince Djhutmose, isn’t it amazing that we do know that just over 3,000 years ago a young prince loved his cat, a young boy’s love for his cat. Prince Djhutmose was so fond of his cat that he had a fine limestone sarcophagus carved for her, had her body mummified and then carefully buried. The limestone sarcophagus is now on display in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and shows the cat sitting before an offering table heaped with goodies for the afterlife. It seems that her owner wanted her to enjoy her time after death as much as she had appreciated being a cosseted royal pet in life. We know from the inscriptions that she was called Ta-miu, which literally meant ‘she-cat’ and that her owner was Crown Prince Djhutmose, the eldest son of the mighty Pharaoh Amenophis III and his great royal wife, Queen Tiye.
