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.

That's my confession wink.gif

I don't believe it for a second. I think you're just trying to lull us all into a false sense of security . . .

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.

....slinks off to edit that embarrassing post from earlier today........  ph34r.gif   laugh.gif


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").
