For some reason or another, black cats have some of the lowest adoption rates of any cats at rescues or shelters. People often associate black cats with being bad luck, but such is not the case. Black cats deserve a fair chance to be loved just as much as any other cat does. Here are 5 reasons why black cats are special:
5. Those Eyes!
Obviously cats have stunning features, but the eyes might be some of the most beautiful among them. But a black cat? Their striking eyes stand out like no other against that silky black fur on their face. Meow!
4. They Match Everything
I'm a lover of black and gray clothing, and if you have a black cat then you will always match! Which basically means you won't have to worry about cat hairs showing up as much on your clothing. And have you ever seen a tuxedo black and white cat? Those are just the cutest!
3. Black Cats Look Like Mini Panthers
Sleek and shiny with a beautiful raven black coat that glistens in the sunlight, black cats almost look like miniaturized versions of panthers! Rroooarr!!
2. A Black Cat is Actually Good Luck
In other countries around the world, a black cat is actually a symbol of good luck or fortune. When one is present people take this as a sign of good things to come in countries like Britain or Japan. If a black cat crosses their path, they're excited about it! Fun fact: Some of the most famous television and movie cats were black.
1. Lots of People Claim They Make the Sweetest Cats
Maybe if more people took a chance on black cats, they would realize that these cats are some of the sweetest around! If you are thinking about adding another cat to your family, rescuing a black cat is something you will never regret!
