Black Cat Wednesday

As you will know, loyal readers, I have no prejudices and am fair to all members of perheeni, and as today is Halloween, I thought I would celebrate our good pal Ruska, and black cats everywhere. Ruska is shy, and was a wee wild feral kitty from Muhos - like me but he had sisters. He doesn't like to be handled, but graces Äiti with occasional permission for a head rub. He does however eat from her hand when there's fresh raw beef in it! We all love Ruska as he's  a great big fluffy panther. 
He's smart, and masters those wicked 'interactive' treat dispensers. 
He's helped many of us have our rightful snacks by giving them a whack for us.
He and I share mightily fluffy tails!
 And Ruska's fur is gloriously shiny in the sun. He loves the sun on his luxurious fluffy body.
We cannot understand why anyone could think black cats are unlucky. Humans are so stupid: in the UK a black cat crossing your path is unlucky, or lucky , depending on whom you talk too. Humans are so inconsistent. And there are even some who don't see Halloween for the great commercial materialistic extravaganza it has become and maintain old misguided ideas of being mean to black kitties on the day. This is unspeakable in our view, as is any cruelty. We would happily zombify anyone who crossed our path and tried that with us - then they'd know what unlucky meant! So, keep everyone safe tonight and give special treats to all the handsome black cats you meet!

As a black cat myself, I thank you for your Majesty's wise message on this day. I was not certain that Finnish cats celebrated such crass commercial holidays, but perhaps vestiges of ancient lore (NOT involved ill-treatment of kitty kats, Kingly or otherwise!) litter the landscape of Kiimamaa, my ancestral lands...oh, wait, no they're not--my, uh, recently-acquired lands. With a$$es, or something. I gotta get over there and homestead that acreage.

Ruska is a very handsum fellow! Those shy mancats really are Mommy's thing. We can't imagine any wanting to hurt a kitteh, period. Mommy would kick their asterisks!

Ruska is beautiful! Love the crossed fluffy tails!

Saila said...

Our black home panther Musti totally agrees. Ruska is gorgeous! And interestingly also his fur is clearly very very dark brown in sunlight. Musti is exactly the same. And, as the matter of fact, so are black panthers who in truth have a very dark pigment but their spots can be seen in very bright light - Musti's stripes can also be seen in very good light. Not that there is any now.
Lots of raw beef to Ruska, I'd love to sent cuddles but since he's not into them...

Katie Isabella said...

Ruska is a very very VERY handsome mancat and a most worthy companion for anyone who would take the tie to give him reason to treust them. What a beautiful panther.

Wonderful Ruska Reportage!

Don't know what it's like up your way but Halloween is pretty much a non-event here...

Purrs,
The Chans

Zepa said...

Black cats are my favourite! (Don't tell this to Harmaa)

Mr. Black said...

Ruska is a very handsome mancat! Sometimes I envy the kind of fluffiness he possesses, especially on chilly days (not your kind of chilliness, of course).

Thanks for your message on black cats!

Pretinha said...

Ruska sorry that you're so shy because you are very beautiful. Loved your photo with flowers.

Colehaus Cats said...

Thank you for telling us about Ruska. Black cats are lucky cats around here. Just ask our Olivia who is no longer a shy girl but talkie and loving. Happy Treat-Filled Halloween to you all! Purrs...

Ginger Jasper said...

Ruska is a stunner for sure. In the UK we say black cats are lucky if they cross your path but mum thinks all cats are gorgeous no matter what kind, type or colour.. Happy Halloween.. Hugs GJ xx

Kari said...

We love black cats and, goodness, Ruska is one gorgeous black cat! And such a beautiful face. It makes us sad to know that he cannot relax enough to enjoy your Aiti's boundless love. But we are overjoyed that he is very loved by Aiti and family.
Love and kisses to him from all of us. Kari, Gran (our grandmother) and all of us cats.
