My little diva is well aware of her perfect beauty. And of how completely she can manipulate me with just a look.
But as Mimi and I were going about our business today and having fun with photos and working in the garden—I apparently need to be encouraged with head butts and face rubs even in the garden, do you know how cat hair sticks to sweaty hands and arms?—I remembered, especially, Cookie, who spent the longest time outdoors with me, and suddenly realized how lonely I’d be if Mimi hadn’t happily filled that role, when I’m working away and feel warm fur press against my leg, not a word needs to be said. I love my garden, but I wondered how devoted I’d be without a supervising feline. Mimi was a little surprised when I picked her up and hugged her and smooched all over her face, getting more cat hair stuck to me in the process, but what’s a little more cat hair, and mild-mannered Mimi always lets me have my way, but she purred about it. This is not the first time I’ve done this.
From a little wandering street cat and rescued mother of six litters of kittens to the Queen of My Heart, Mimi has really come quite a way in her life.
And of black cats, who could look at this face and not want to see an ebony beauty just like Mimi each and every day, with those lemon slice eyes?
The display of beauty continues. Mimi apparently wanted me to take this photo

Adopt your ebony diva during Adopt a Cat Month. Unfortunately, there are always plenty of black cats in shelters at any time.
