Everyone believed that black cats brought bad luck. That was before the Black Cat Bonanza occurred.
Black cats have a bad rap. All I’m are trying to do is to find some food. I’m careful to avoid the big guy in the red house. Every time he sees me he picks up a stone and flings it at me along with a curse.
He changed his tune after the Black Cat Bonanza. It was the talk of the village. Nobody believed that cats could do it but they were wrong.
For a long time the small Mom and Pop businesses went out of business on Main St. Only big banks and junk food restaurants could pay the exorbitant leases. We cats liked those small businesses. The guy in the pizza place left us bowls of milk and uneaten pizza. The lady in the bakery left us bread and cake. They were good people.
On the other hand the bankers gave us nothing. The red-faced loan officer kicked me several times when I got out of the way too slowly. Us cats decided we weren’t going to take it any more.
One thing that cats do well is to hunt mice and rats. So what did we do? We went on strike. At first no one noticed. When the rats started to dance in the bank tellers’ windows the crap hit the fan.
Needless to say, the Mom and Pop businesses returned and we went back to work. We got rid of the rats and mice and our bowls of milk started appearing again.
The people in the town called it the Black Cat Bonanza.
It’s nice to be appreciated.
