Black, black & white cats/kittens
Always Overlooked black, black & white cats/kittens
Black and black-and-white cats make up around half of all the cats in our care – and sadly they wait much longer to find their home than the average cat although they are just as loving and fun as any other cat.
Could this be a result of silly superstition?
Historically countries in Europe have considered black cats to be a symbol of evil
omens and the familiars of witches.
Could it be because they don't
People say black cat's features don't show up in photos and are also harder to tell apart than others with distinctive markings. First of all, don't
ever judge a cat by its colour and look at its personality instead
secondly, it is
possible to get great photographs of black cat it just takes a bit of skill maybe buy a real camara instead of using a phone or learn some photography basics instead of blaming the cat. This is a problem as some people give up their black cat because they don't look good in selfies.
Could you look BEYOND the COAT..?
Look beyond the coat, and black cats have all the charm, and charisma of their more colourful cousins. Not to mention their sleek glossy dark coats which complement their bright shining eyes. They are stunning, regal looking animals; each one an individual. Black cats are just as wonderful as any other, with exactly the same needs - love and care, in a home of their own. If you enjoy the company of cats whatever their colour, please consider adopting a black cat.
