Oscar: Compassionate Companion, Genuine Caregiver
I'm a black cat. We have been much maligned in Europe and America over the centuries, being (wrongly) singled out as associating with black magic, witches, and such like (all types of cats, slobberdogs, and other animals could just as easily claim supernatural affiliations). Black cats were especially prized, nay, worshipped, by the ancient Egyptians, and they built the pyramids, for crying out loud. Black cats are actually good luck. Ask any of their companions.
Felines, like slobberdogs, horseys, moo-cows, and lots of other animals, are, frankly, psychic. Face it--our awareness is broader than most humans. (Okay, humans are animals, too, and there are psychics among them.) There are too many well authenticated cases to dispute this historical fact. One such demonstration of what biologist Rupert Sheldrake (remember him?) calls extended mind is featured in our book trailer below.
You can read Scowl-Face's blog (zzzzzzz....) for a traditional book review. Oscar is an amazing cat, plain and simple. His story is intriguing and unforgettable. Some people might think he's spooky or a grim reaper, but they don't understand kitties. Sharing our companionship is a genuine act of caring and, in the case of the terminally ill, of compassion as well.
Proud to be a Black Kitty, You Bet Your Boots,
