What could be more beautiful than a cat? This is Holly, an ordinary black cat. Nothing special about her. No pedigree. No extraordinary colouring. Not particularly long hair. Just an ordinary cat.
But what is ordinary about a cat.? What is ordinary about her? Just look at the grace of her body, the curve of her paw, the gloss of her coat, and the linear loveliness of her tail.
August 6, tomorrow, is National Cat Day. Humans can celebrate it by celebrating the beauty of all cats. Not just the special ones, not just the ordinary ones, but also the scruffy ones, the elderly ones, the starving ones and the disabled cats.
So, if you can, give a pound or a dollar to your local cat rescue, and next time you want a cat, adopt a rescue cat.
We cats say thank you.
