My Journey with Black Cats: Welcome to Midnight Mouser!


Hello, cat lovers! Welcome to the very first blog post of Midnight Mouser. I wanted to take this opportunity to share a bit about myself, my lifelong love affair with black cats, and how this passion led me to create Midnight Mouser. I’ll also give you a sneak peek of what to expect from this blog and our unique product line. So let’s get started!

My Story: A Life Enriched by Black Cats

From my earliest memories, black cats have been a constant in my life. My family has always been drawn to these beautiful animals, adopting them from shelters or taking in strays that mysteriously showed up at our doorstep. Growing up, I was fascinated by their sleek coats, piercing eyes, and the air of mystery that seems to follow them like a shadow.

As I grew older, I noticed that black cats often had a bad rap, steeped in superstitions and myths that had no basis in reality. In many cultures, they are wrongly considered unlucky or malevolent. It was heart-wrenching to learn that black cats are less likely to be adopted from shelters, often waiting longer for their forever homes than cats of other colors. This unfair stigma further fueled my desire to make a difference.

The Birth of Midnight Mouser

I grew up with a very logical brain and a strong attention to detail. However, I also had a creative streak in me. I've spent the last few decades building my professional career as a paralegal. This profession speaks to my eye for detail and my logical nature, but it doesn't do much for expressing creativity. I felt a desire to incorporate some creativity in my life, and what better way to do that than to combine it with one of my passions? I've always felt a special connection with black cats. My house does not feel quite like a home without one. It felt like the perfect marriage. Thus, Midnight Mouser was born!

I create designs that focus on black cats and speak to those who love them. I want to use my logical skills to produce products with the highest quality possible, leaving no detail unchecked. I desire to create a space that not only offers high-quality black cat-themed products, but also educates people on the joys and benefits of sharing their lives with these amazing felines.
