Good Luck Cat Cafe, Holidays & Model Search

Rainbow bridge day

What a wild week since the eclipse! Settle back dear ones, we have jam-packed Black Cats Tell All Monday with yours truly, Clyde and ta da, a new model search contest. Plus you’ll want to scroll to the end to see my mentor who rocked bowties and dispensed wisdom and stardust. As you may know, I loathe being photographed but indulged Layla, who by the way is home from the hospital. She’s none to pleased to have to take it easy but very pleased and appreciative of the kind good wishes. So, what was I saying…right… being old is for the birds. I’m started to feel it in my bones. See the arthritis in my leg? Ach, well I am pushing 18 and could use all the luck I can get.

Cat cafe’s are cropping up everywhere but here’s a new twist. The Good Luck Cat Cafe is a part of Boomerang, a thrift shop in the St. Lauderdale area in Florida. My mom Layla loves thrift shops and some the best ones are in Florida. So you can browse for fun finds, have a coffee and cuddle some kitties. They partnered with Good Karma Pet Rescue and Lady Luck Animal Rescue  and I featured one of their cats on Instagram named, K’Ehlair. What a cool name! Is this photo not begging to be captioned?



She is youngster about a year old and was found at an Auto Nation in Miami with half of her ear missing. I don’t think it was a feral cat ear-tipping since she’s super friendly. She is the cafe greeter, always at the door, always talking to our visitors! She may even sit on your lap if she likes your vibe. She loves to cuddle and be kissed.  As a wise old black cat, I can assure you she will bring good luck to whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. Check them out on Instagram @_goodluckcatcafe

All of the cats (7 currently available) are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on their shots. The adoption fee is only $75.  All the cats are socialized and comfortable being around lots of people. The nonprofit organization offers snacks, drinks/coffee, buttons and bracelets for small donations. Unlike other cat cafes, Good Luck Cat Cafe is free to visit.

Although there are several photos of me in our Black Cats Tell All: True Tales And Inspiring Images book, I did not grace our 2017 calendar. Wah.

BTW, Every copy sold feeds 5 cats  click to buy at the discounted price. Prices go up next week when we launch a new version on Amazon.

We’re purring with excitement to announce a Meowdel or Model Search for our 2018 Black Cats Tell All calendar.

  1. Pipo: I am only black if the lighting is wrong, MOL!

    I hope you get so many entries that it will be hard to choose one. Merlin sure looks dapper with that bow tie!

    So glad you are out of the hospital and may you get the rest you need…don’t forget to rest…that is not petcretary’s motto either, MOL!

  2. Sending good health wishes and whisker kisses from Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red! Also kisses to our old friend Clyde. May all homeless cats find such wonderful loving homes – as he did.

  3. Layla, I am glad you are out of the hospital! I am still pretty ill, but I feel better than I did a week ago. Merlin looks so wonderful in his bow tie! I bet he and Nellie are having Lobster shakes as they watch the stars tonight.
    Love Barb

  4. Sounds like a nice cat cafe, I love thrift stores too. I need to start taking some photos of my black cats to try to be in the calendar. I hope you are feeling better Layla. XO

    I am 50 miles south of Boston now… in a new apartment… in horse country… where you can barely find a post office.. but lots of hale bales and horses.. Teaches me to relax…

  6. The only model I have now is …orange… Mao now lives in ATL with dotter, and he’s not all black. I got Cheddar, who howled for Mao the fist night, but seems to have adjusted. This is a great, great, great idea… Keep it up! Black Cats the world over thank you.
