Happy Caturday!

Today I want to celebrate Black Cats.

So, let’s celebrate these wonderfully lovable and spooky felines- starting with mine and then let’s move on to some great artwork by  Théophile Alexandre Steinlen and quotes from the Black Cat by Edgar Allen Poe.

“This latter was a remarkably large and beautiful animal, entirely black, and sagacious to an astonishing degree.”
― Edgar Allan Poe, The Black Cat

THÉOPHILE STEINLEN, 1900
” Cat In The Moonlight “

“The fury of a demon instantly possessed me. I knew myself no longer. My original soul seemed, at once, to take its flight from my body; and a more than fiendish malevolence, gin-nurtured, thrilled every fibre of my frame.”
― Edgar Allan Poe, The Black Cat

Théophile Alexandre Steinlen

“With my aversion to this cat, however, its partiality for myself seemed to increase.”
― Edgar Allan Poe, The Black Cat
