Black cat day

National Black Cat Day



National Black Cat Day is back


Thank you to everyone who sent in a picture of their black or black-and-white cat for our National Black Cat Day poster.

We were sent almost 1,400 pics from over 300 different owners and the great news is that we’ve tried to include at least one from every owner.

You can even download a copy of the poster and those that submitted pictures can search for their cat!


The poster is currently up in a shopping mall in Burgess Hill, Sussex and they'll be used nationwide by our adoption centres and branches all year round – so keep an eye out.

Last year’s National Black Cat Day reached more than 330,000 people on social media, and we think that this year’s event will be even more popular.

And if you’re thinking of adopting a cat, why not consider a black or black-and-white one?
