Day Thirteen – Black Cat

When I started this series, my Irish stepmother was quick to point out that black cats are considered lucky in Ireland.  When I was plotting out what I would draw for each day, Friday the 13th seemed like the best choice – a mix of good and bad luck!  This black cat is extra special; it is of the Manx breed, originally hailing from the Isle of Mann.  The Manx cats come in two main types: Rumpy and Stumpy, which signifies how short their tail is.  Here the Manx is shown with the coat of arms from the Isle of Man, featuring the triskelion (3 legs) with the quote in latin that translates to “Whichever way you throw it, it will stand.”
