About The Editor
Michelle is the owner and editor of KwerkyKats.com and all of the associated social media pages. You can find us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
Michelle grew up in a rural area in North Carolina where it wasn’t uncommon for Tom cats to come by for the summer or people to, unfortunately, dump unwanted animals, especially kittens.
As such, she’s been around animals and has been an animal lover pretty much her entire life. When she graduated eighth grade and her mother asked her what she wanted as a gift for the accomplishment, she wanted nothing more than a black kitten of her own instead to add to the family of dogs they had and the stray cats that would occasionally come by.
Soon after, her first black cat, Tinkerbell, was added to the family and she hasn’t gone through life without a cat ever since.
About The Cats
One of the first things usually asked are all of your cats black? Most of them are, yes.
Michelle was drawn to black cats by their beauty but as she grew up she came to learn that black cats are usually the least sought out and thus take the longest to be adopted.
So, she and her husband, Tommy aka Mr. Kwerky, always seek out black cats from shelters and rescues when the opportunity comes up to expand their family.
How does Mr. Kwerky feel about the cats? He’s always been an animal lover and when Michelle brought her own cat to the relationship he knew he would happily always be a cat dad and may have initiated adding a couple to the family himself.
You’ll notice there is also a gray and white cat in some of their photos and videos. He was found in the road one day as an approximately 4-week-old kitten when Mr. Kwerky was on his way to work and immediately stole our hearts.
All of our cats have come from shelters and rescues through the years as we thoroughly believe in adopt don’t shop.
We hope our photos and videos bring a little joy to your day!
Please note that we always ultimately suggest you speak to a professional, such as your pet’s veterinarian, for any issues, especially health and temperament related. We are not in any way experts but we have spent many years caring for cats and are happy to share our tips and advice developed from our own experiences.
