About Us
Ebony, the Cat of the Day
Name: Ebony
Age: 21 years old
Gender: Female
Breed: Bombay
Home: Magnolia, Texas, USA
   Our Ebony has taken care of our family for so long, it is hard to remember life when she wasn't here. Although she has slowed down a little (she doesn't jump from the floor to the tops of doors anymore), she lovingly watches over us as she always has. Our girls were in high school when our daughter brought Ebony (then ten weeks old) home from the Humane Society in Indianapolis. Our girls are now in their 30's and Ebony continues to be an important part of "home" when they bring their families here for a visit.

    Although very lady-like in behavior, Ebony has never pleasantly meowed. Instead, her Siamese-type yowl can be heard in all corners of the house. She is the senior member of a five-cat household, and although she is the smallest among them, she keeps each and every one in their place.

    Watching birds used to be a favorite pastime, but Ebony's eyesight isn't as good as it used to be and she is now a little unsure where we are calling her from because her hearing has weakened. But, she has kept her girlish figure, and her lovely black fur is as silky and beautiful as ever. She loves to curl up beside us in "her" chair, and we hope the good Lord will keep her healthy, happy and here for a long time yet.
