They say a black cat who crosses your path is bad luck. Shakes has been good luck to me. He’s kept the plague rats away from me so far. I’m glad he’s here. He’ll keep away the ghosts in the castle too! I don’t like feeling scared. With All-Hallows nearly upon us, I’ll need Shakes to stop me feeling afraid. The nights grow darker now and the cold starts to creep in. People will walk around with masks on to ward away evil but they look evil themselves! Thankfully warding off witchcraft involves lighting a glorious fire which we love. Shakes always purs in the warmth on my knee.
