BBC.co.uk - 27 October 2016 - Black cats: beauty is more than fur deep To mark National Black Cat Day, Cats Protection has released research which found that, on average, black cats have to wait 22% longer to find a new home ‘compared to their more colourful friends’.

Cats Protection’s Social Media Manager, Gemma Croker, said: “There is a tendency to see the black cats as less exciting, which we think is because they are much more common among the cat population.” The article reports how there had been a spike in the number of online searches for black cats and a surge in tweets using the hashtag #blackcatday.
