I'm not overly find of cats, but growing up I had a black cat named Whiskers. I got her at the age of 4 and she died when I was 21. She got sick suddenly but held on until I could get home from college and say goodbye. I missed her a lot in the beginning and think of her every time I see a black cat. I ♥ you Whiskers!
A black panther is typically a melanistic color variant of any of several species of larger cat. Wild black panthers in Latin America are black jaguars (Panthera onca), in Asia and Africa they are black leopards (Panthera pardus), and in North America they may be black jaguars or possibly black cougars, or smaller cats...
