The first comic told the sad story of a little black cat who found itself in the company of the grim reaper after it had been deliberately hit by a car.

Sad tails of black cats

Jenny Jinya, the artist behind the comic, wanted to use her talents to highlight the discrimination that black cats face every day. Some people associate black cats with bad luck and even death.

Jenny hopes that her comic will give a voice to abandoned cats.

Black cat sequel

She has carried on her work by releasing a sequel to her comic. And this promises to be a tear-jerker too.

It starts with an old lady weeping over the loss of her little black feline friend.

Meanwhile, at a rescue shelter, an elderly black cat with one eye is looking for a new home. But no one wants her. Just as the future looks bleak for her, the black cat’s friend, the kind old lady, arrives to take the cat.

The grim reaper wakes the black kitten in heaven and takes him to the old lady’s house. The black kitten watches the new cat sitting on the lady’s lap. The kitten says, “that’s my mum!”, and is delighted to see that his owner has saved another life after his passing.

The moral of the story: if you can, honour your pet's life by adopting another in need!
