Draw a Black Cat for our Black Cat Friday logo!
At Shropshire Cat Network every Friday is Black Cat Friday!
We declare every Friday the day to celebrate all the gorgeous Black Cats – big and small!
Did you know that Black Cats are the least likely to be adopted? You ask any Rescue Centre and they will agree. It’s the same for Black Kittens! Add a fluffy coat into the mix and well… they stand even less of a chance!
It’s National Black Cat Day on the 27th of October so we have decided to hold a Draw a Black Cat Competition and we will use the winning design on a logo for Black Cat Friday.
It can be any design, any shape, quirky, comical, a caricature, a doodle – anything at all – as long as it looks like a Black Cat and can be used as our logo!
Check out You Tube, there are some great videos on how to draw cats!
When – Now until midnight on the 30th of October 2020. Samantha and Anthony will choose the best drawing (that is suitable for the logo) 1 November 2020 and announce the winner!
Entry Fee – No fee but feel free to make a donation to help Black Cat Nahla and her 5 Black Kittens! Nahla is named after the cat in the book “Mildred the Crazy Cat Lady” by K.S.Horak and her 5 gorgeous Black kittens are going to be named after characters from the book. The fans of Mildred the Crazy Cat Lady will be asked to suggest suitable names.
The Winner – Your Black Cat will be featured as our Black Cat Friday logo, and you get to adopt this gorgeous statue of Bastet the Egyptian Cat Goddess – who actually looks a bit like Nahla!
