It’s hard to believe, but black cats are overlooked because of their colour!

It’s a problem shared all over the world. And yet black cats have as much to offer as any other cat. Through no fault of their own, they are overlooked, as most people tend to choose ‘prettier’ coloured cats. Even black kittens are the last to be adopted, while their more colourful siblings are chosen first. And so, black cats spend longer in foster care, waiting for someone to see past their colour…

In some countries black cats are seen as lucky, but in the main it seems they are rejected on a superstitious basis; that they are somehow unlucky or a ‘witches cat’.  Added to that, black cats can be difficult to photograph so their pictures never do them justice.

We know black cats are just as wonderful as any other, with exactly the same needs – to be loved and cared for. If you enjoy the company of cats whatever their colour, please consider adopting a black cat.
