100 Years of New Year’s Eve Cheer With Cats

100 Years of New Year’s Eve Cheer With Cats by Layla Morgan Wilde.

Happy New Year  or New Year 2018. It was a rough year of ups and downs but 2017 will always be a special year since it’s the year we published our first book Black Cats Tell All: True Tales And Inspiring Images.

We’re happy to say farewell to 2017 and ready to welcome a fresh new year and yes, a new book! Before we say hello or goodbye, thanks for being here. May the new year bring you an abundance of purrs.  We hope this odd assortment of new year’s greetings old and our new creations bring cheer.

Much love and best fishes,

Layla, Clyde, Domino, Odin & Nou Nou


This very royal black cat actually dates back to 1896!


We come across cat graffiti everywhere.


Some World War I cheer from black cats with a dash of the 21st century.


And no matter what language you speak, black cats bring good luck.  Bonne Annee to our our French speaking friends.




We drink a toast to you but please keep all alcohol away from cats. It’s toxic but you know that from our regular dispensing of cat wisdom.



Not only are we celebrating a New Year but it’s a super full moon. Let’s hope your cats aren’t going wild like these kitties. How about you? How are you celebrating?


We are celebrating making a difference in the lives of black cats and will continue to advocate for all less adoptable shelter cats.

Sorry we have been so under the radar….one step daughter has been in the hospital/rehab facility since the 19th……….(sepsis, kidney stone, UTI and other issues, the one with the spina bifida)…spent last night at the ER with the youngest stepdaughter, was there from 10pm til 4am today…….she is pregnant (VERY early on) and was having issues……..praying all will be ok………it’s been super high stress for us and some of it will be entering 2018…….ugh…………praying 2018 ends up being MUCH better than 2017 was! xoxo

  4. Layla we hope that you ALL have the best year EVER in every single way…….2017 is a year we shall all not be TOOO sad to wave bye-bye to…..but even a bad year brings lessons and learning so it wasn’t all bad. Much success in 2018 and always.
