In Praise of Black Cats

Praise seems appropriate on our special day.
Local kitty blog The Cats Meow, reminds us today that we black cats are indeed genetic marvels. The genes that make my fur so dark and luxurious are recessive. It takes two copies of the black fur gene to make us black cats so mysterious...

Black cats rock Mortimer, and so do you. There's also some weird gene missing in black cats, the agouti gene, it gives the white fur in tabby stripes - so, really most black cats are also secret tabbies.

My boring human forced me at gun point to type all that^
