Cat Lady No. 13...Lucky Thirteen
Cat Lady Diedre thinks she's the luckiest gal in the world to have Mystico the Black Cat in her life...She adopted him when he was just 13 weeks old from a shelter on 13th Avenue on the 13th of January exactly 13 years ago. You can't get any luckier than that!
Mystico enjoys hiding in shadows then leaping out to grab Diedre's ankles, without using his claws of course, because it's all in fun. Diedre always shrieks and then laughs hysterically.
Over the centuries, the mysterious black cat has been both revered and reviled...Here is an amusing quiz about some of the curious beliefs and superstitions we have created about black cats: BLACK CAT QUIZ
