My husband and I used to have a beautiful Himalayan cat by the name of Oscar. My mother in law absolutely hates any animals and was never fond of any of our three cats. Oscar was a typical Himalayan with a black face, paws and tail. The rest of him was smoky.
At one of the dinners we were hosting at our house, she got a bit tipsy and decided to talk to me. I can't remember what the conversation was about but all of a sudden, she leans close to me and whispers,"Doesn't your cat look like a devil with a black face?" I was somewhat taken aback but just smiled and told her that I think he is gorgeous. She didn't speak to me for the rest of the evening.
