Black and Gold Kitties

Mewsette Supports Black and Gold

Mewsette models the little Steelers hat—I know, it’s the wrong era, but I haven’t made these things since he 70s, and this one belonged to my mother so I’ve kept it. Anyone want to guess who “32” is? I don’t know if there’s a 32 on the team today, but the answer is at the bottom of this post.

The Fantastic Four would have been perfectly happy to model the hat but it kept falling off. I only managed to get a photo of Mewsette wearing the hat just before it fell forward, and she looks a little uncertain about the situation. She looks more than pleased to support the Black and Gold in the photo at the top.

Those Luminous Eyes

Aside from five black cats, most of whom have gold eyes, a nice touch, I have two tortoiseshell girls who are naturally black and gold. Below they are sleeping on my lap while I work at my computer, or while I take a break from working to photograph them.

Read about another famous tortoiseshell kitty whose name is actually Steeler on my blog and on The Conscious Cat. I have no idea how many views Steeler’s photo has on WTAE’s website, but it was over 50,000 at one point.

And the answer to the player number above is Franco Harris.




From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.
