National Black Cat Day

National Black Cat Day banner

Some heroes go unseen.

For too long black cats have waited in the shadows as their colourful counterparts found homes. In 2017 alone, black cats took 13% longer to rehome than cats of any other colour.

It’s time to recognise these unsung heroes.

27 October is National Black Cat Day, a time to recognise the beautiful black cats in our lives and raise awareness of those still waiting for a loving home.

In celebration of black cats everywhere, we’re looking for seven lucky black cats to form a league of dark-furred defenders.

Tell us what makes your cat a hero and submit a photo to be in with a chance of winning. We’ll choose our favourites and announce the winners on National Black Cat Day.

The winners will get their paws on a range of gifts including 2 x tickets to the National Cat Awards, exclusive Simon’s Cat art, and much more.

Because all heroes deserve a happy ending.

Please read the terms and conditions before entering our photo competition.
