Careful! Black cats = bad luck

I've been feeding this strays' colony for over a year now. Only today did I realize that when the 100% black cat (whom I dearly call "Grone") seems to have had enough to eat and leaves, then later comes back and is ravenous again and I don't give him a full second portion of the chicken - it's actually 2 different black cats!!!

One of them got hurt in the back of the neck lately, so when I was checking the injury today, and a few minutes later he came to me without the injury, I realized it's actually 2 different cats.

Poor, poor, poor black cats! They had been getting less food and attention for over a year! Since it's so hard to tell one black cat from another, these dearest kitties of mine were soooo unlucky! Now I know to count one more cat for the chicken portions, and always give the black cat double! And double attention too. I even think they may be 3, but I'm not sure. I know I always found it puzzling that he seems to be everywhere I go, and I thought he just loved to roam the neighborhood, but since I've seen him in 3 sub-colonies, I'm now checking to see if they are 3.

Be careful when feeding a black cat, make sure it's indeed only one.

I've also made a note to feed an additional meal in the daytime once a week or two, to be able to observe the cats better.

This makes perfect sense! I always wondered how ONE little black kitten could cause so much chaos..... I must have two or three of them living here!

PAHAHAHAHAHAH! Thats greatness Krissy! I too must have more than one pocket panther in this house. Too much chaos for one little kitty.

Seriously though, poor little ferals. So luck to have you feeding them!

Thank you, Kobster. All black cats in my area now get extra everything for 1+ year as compensation!

No wonder Midnight, the wild cat, eats enough for two. There's another one right behind him!

I read in Great Britian black cats are considered good luck. who is the jerk who started the bad luck B S here? Id like to take them out. So many people think its ok to abuse cats esp black cats.

I had great pictures of a black cat we had for adoption. His brother looked exactly like him. Im the only one who could tell them apart. So we used the extra pictures of the cute brother for Petfinder to advertise for the quiet brother who wouldnt perform for the camera. unfortunately the quiet shy black brother still hasnt gotten adopted. Its gona take a special person to see his potential which is there once you gain his trust. Then he is a happy big goof ball and loving of other cats and affectionate with "his people".

Be careful, GT I think Midnight is sub-letting his dwelling in your garage to a look-alike.

Shiva means "return". Is that why you named her that?
