A couple of times now, people have commented on how lovely my cat is as they see him in my sig.  The black cat in my sig is actually a series of random black cats whose pictures I find on the internet and I just add some words or otherwise edit as I fee necessary.

My own lovely cat is in fact an elderly tabby cat who would tear me to ribbons if I dressed her up as Santa.  laughing2.gif

No, well I always assumed that nobody would think they were mine but a couple of people recently have given me the impression they think it's my cat.  I thought I'd better fess up.

Black cat is my alter ego.

As a cat person yourself, if you knew who I was, you'd probably laugh.

I always thought you had taken a series of pictures when your cat was a kitten and just changed your signature as and when it was appropriate.

You weren't the only one.  You just made me feel like maybe I was defrauding EB so I thought I'd better put it out there.

FWIW I did have a lovely black cat just like in the pics.  He probably would have let me dress him up.  He was gorgeous but perhaps a bit touched in the head.  My current cat is senile and deaf and stripey.

Sometimes I am a cat very similar to the one in the photos.  But my true identity must remain secret so when I go out I wear a costume.

Oh good lord - who does that to a cat?! oomg2.gif

I thought they were random internet pics, but very cute all the same.

My cat would make me bleed if I waved so much as a piece of tinsel in her direction. She's 20, but 'feisty' (a word that means "has all her claws and most of her teeth, and isn't afraid to use them").
