Looking for the main cat, Luna Lovegood.* Couldn’t find her. Cats are like that. They hide in wonderfully difficult-to-find places, and they resist entreaties to come out, even for dinner. Luna wasn’t coming when called . . .
In the bedroom, looking around, calling, to no avail . . . 25th call (or thereabouts), a black plastic bag on the bed sorta came alive. Luna opened her eyes, and outed herself.
Do black cats know that they are black cats? I think they take advantage of their mono-color camouflage, and that they do it knowingly.
I also think they do it because they think its funny we can’t see them.

* We adopted her from the pound, through Pet Medical Center of Duncanville. As a black cat, she wasn’t much adoptable, and had spent six months waiting for a home. She was named by the pound, or the vet. Since she answered to the name, she kept it.
