Our Niece Ninja

Just Harry and I have a human sister in Orlando and our human sister has three cats and a small dog. About a month ago, one of her cats, Ninja, a beautiful but feisty black girl, spied an open garage door and disappeared. Our sister was terribly sad and kept looking for Ninja. But then, a few days ago, just when she had almost given up hope, she caught a glimpse of a familiar black tail hiding underneath something a few houses away. Knowing Ninja's independent personality, our sister got down on her knees so as not to scare her away She waited and waited, and little by little, a tiny black nose emerged from the hiding place, then two paws, and a furry body, and Ninja was back!!!
After more than a month out on her own , Ninja's awfully skinny, but a check-up with the vet showed nothing else is wrong. The vet said that, if she eats and drinks to gain her weight back, she'll be just fine.
We don't have to tell you that, like most of our kind, we're not too crazy about cats -- but Ninja is our niece, and she is black, and it is Hallowe'en, so we thought you wouldn't mind if we featured Ninja in our blog today.
And, while we are at it, speaking of black cats and Hallowe'en, we want to wish Joe the Cat, a friend of ours over on Mr. Doodle's Dog, a very happy 13th birthday. How cool is that? Black, and 13 and Hallowe'en!!!
FYI: This unique, for us, paw shake across the species does not, however, extend to all those scalawags who hide under our cars (see JH's photo a blog ago).

That is so great that Ninja came home. Halloween can be a scary and dangerous time for black cats out on their own. I'm glad she's safe!

That's so great that Ninja came home safe. I'm a cat friendly dog. They tend not to eat al their dinner at once I find, so you can go and help finish it off!

I wonder where the cat went? Maybe it got shut in somewhere. I'm glad it found its way home, even though its a cat.

Our sister, Sabrina, also just tried to take an unannounced holiday. Our mother found her under the house and sat for an hour or so trying to get her out. Sabrina had been under there for 2 days. Silly kitties. We are glad that everything is OK now for your niece.

I think most dogs know I like to chase cats. But if I had a nice friendly one that lived with me, I might regard it as special.

Mistress says Ninja looks very pretty.

Ninja must be a boomerang cat. Very cool that he made his way back home! Hope he gains some good weight!
