|Celebrity Cat: Otto from Los Angeles|
Le Chat Noir was a fabulous event and a success!
If you missed this exciting, inaugural event, there are many photo slideshows to watch.
The day started with a Harley motorcycle ride from Peterson's South dealer to the EPIC Hotel in downtown Miami--the only five star hotel that allows pets!
The celebrity guest was biker cat, Otto, and his chauffer, Christopher Coppola (nephew to Francis Ford Coppola and brother to Nicolas Cage).
Thanks to a wonderful photographer, Claudia Rehder, she captured the essence of the event!

The event raised awareness about the plight of homeless cats and shone a spotlight on black cats to turn around myths associated with their black color. The video below shares the positive history of the black cats, photos of famous celebrities with their black cat, and Top 10 Reasons to Adopt a Black Cat.
