Richard Jury is still dealing with the guilt of the accident that sent Lu Aquilar into a coma. But then he gets assigned the case of a beautiful woman who was murdered on the grounds of a pub called the Black Cat. And the only witness is a black cat. The woman is unidentifiable-but Jury is going to see that the person responsible is known to all...

I caught Salem sitting like a lil weirdo last night and when I starting squealing about how adorable he is and taking pictures . His one eye started bulging out in surprise. He was like “mom really!!!??”

#ScreamathonPhotoChallenge #BlackCat @4thhouseontheleft In fifth grade I had this demon kitten named Rayn. My teacher had found a whole litter of kittens in a flooded tree stump, and the mom was ran over so she was giving them away. Big mistake.

4thhouseontheleft But she looks so cute! 😹 2mo

When you make your own vinyl stickers, and your obsessed with cats in general, it‘s makes it hard to choose which mug best fits today‘s #BlackCat prompt. I think I‘m going to have to go with the Black Cat Society one, since I designed the cut file myself. 🖤 #TeamSlaughter

Lizpixie Ooh, I‘d love copies of these!🐱🖤 2mo

I love cats, and always look for them when I‘m out. This dark gray (almost black) one often crosses my path when I‘m doing my audiowalks. The only problem is, instead of fully crossing he lays down in my path until he decides that I‘ve scratched him enough. #FallIsBooked

Hey guys! Sorry I‘ve been a little distant from Litsy lately. I‘ve been dealing with an abscess tooth for the last week and a half. ☠️ I just had the root canal today, and although my jaw is sore.. I‘m feeling much better. Just wanted to let you all know that I‘ve been keeping track of all your #blackcatchallenge entries! Can‘t wait to see what else you have for me! ♥️☠️👻

Here are my black cats 😍

CouronneDhiver Ouchie! Feel better soon. Have you got any of your wedding photos back yet? I‘ve been hoping for a peek! 14mo
Clwojick @CouronneDhiver YES! I actually just got them on Monday 14mo

So, evidently today is #blackcatappreciationday? Well, then, here is Loki, my 16yo daughter's 9 month old kitty. He's a 15 pound big boy, quite a difference from when we got him at 6 weeks! (Yes, he's sitting in the bathroom sink. *sigh*) #catsofLitsy #LittenKitten

Who knew it was Black Cat Appreciation day!? @Texreader - here‘s Pepsi. She does have white paws so not quite all black.... She‘s over 20 years old so getting on a bit....

ErinGoBragh1011 Have you had Pepsi her whole life? She's super cute! 1y
squirrelbrain @ErinGoBragh1011 - you should post pictures of Annabel Lee - she sounds cute! We‘ve had Pepsi (we had her sister Cola too) since they were about a year old, which was 20 years ago. Cola was very different - she was orange, black and white and a much cleverer cat than Pepsi, who‘s a bit dippy, bless her! 1y

Yes, this is a cat and not a book. But we said goodbye today to this handsome gentleman, Melvin. I‘d had him almost 11 of his almost 17 years. He was with me through 5 homes, multiple boyfriends and taught my husband how awesome cats are. He beat diabetes, but he couldn‘t beat old age and cancer. I will love him forever but he‘s better off now. #catsoflitsy

Jen_Reads I‘m sorry for your loss. He was definitely a very handsome boy. 1y
