All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize.
This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.
Hip Hop Black Cat

For Carol Seaman’s
‘genius showcase idea’
Hey hey furry friends
What’s up with that?
A room, a showcase
For all things bb bb Black Cat
Are you stylin’, or at play
Do you party all day?
Slinky, shiny, silky
What have you got to say?
Licorice, jelly bean, ebony, jet
If I take you with me, what will I get?
Come to the window, I may take you home
A family to love you – you’ll never be alone
I promise to treasure you; give me your trust
All your needs will be met, I know that’s a must
Don’t be afraid, just ‘MEET ME HALF WAY’*
My hand and your paw, will show us the way
So come on over, Black Cat with jewel eyes
Let’s Meet and Greet - between us - no surprise
Your forever home is waiting - show me what you’re about
Happy is today - you catch the last flight out.
