Blackie


Blackie is the oldest cat at Pumpkin's house.  She is about 17 years old now.  The Mom's sister Leona found her hanging around her office and took her home to be an outside cat.  Then Leona had to move and gave over the care of Blackie to her brother-in-law, but later discovered that he was not even feeding her.  Then Leona decided to take Blackie to the humane society, even though it was close to Halloween and the humane society doesn't adopt out black cats at that time of year.  On her way, Leona changed her mind and took Blackie to her sister's house, where she has remained ever since.  Blackie spends most of her time in the patio, which is enclosed.  Her favorite place to nap is on this cage.  Although she is an old cat now, she still really enjoys catnip and toy mousies.  She will send the mousies flying through the air, then chase them.  

                                       Blackie likes to nap on a cage.
                                       She finds it cool and all the rage.
                                              She'll nap in a chair
                                              Or the couch but where
                                        She likes to nap best is on her cage.
