Top Ten Reasons to Adopt a Black Cat

There are no hard numbers, but informal surveys done at animal shelters show that black dogs AND black cats typically take much longer than animals with lighter-colored fur to be adopted (if they are adopted at all). Why? Possible reasons run the gamut from superstitions and negative connotations to the perception that it is more difficult for people to read the expressions on the face of a dark-furred pet.

  • They look like little panthers

  • When you love a black cat, luck is on your side
  • They are a great accessory to any outfit

  • You’ll save $$ on their Halloween costumes
  • Love knows no color
