Black Cat Auditions, 1961

I love these old photos of black cats auditioning (for what?). I am amazed to see so many on leashes! These auditioning cats all look so calm! Years ago, I made the mistake of trying to put my black cat on a leash and taking him outside. I thought he’d like it. Instead, he got freaked out by all the crazy smells and noises and became very startled and tried getting out of his leash. That day, I learned that kitty prefers taunting me indoors than to enjoying the outdoors with me.
