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.
