Blackie was born in Chicago, the son of a female cat named Peaches. He is the result of the day Peaches escaped her happy home with Lillian and Robert Dowling and met up with an unidentified “Tom.”
He was adopted by Hetty as soon as he was weaned and spent all of his time in Chicago living within the confines of her apartment. Since moving to Hendricksville, he’s discovered the great outdoors and is very pleased about it.
His greatest pleasures in life include being standoffish with everyone but Hetty and hissing and slapping and pouncing at Andrew whenever the opportunity presents itself. But his greatest joy comes when curled up on Hetty’s lap while she knits.
