Black cats and kittens are often overlooked when looking for new homes, and can be last to be selected by prospective new owners.  Why should this be?  the reason often given is that black cats are unlucky, but in most cultures it is quite the opposite.  In fact, it is said that to have a black cat cross your path will bring you good luck! Black cats can have just as lovely personalities, are just as affectionate as other colours, and make just as great pets. 

Cats Protection is celebrating all things black cats on 25 October 2012, and we are hoping this will raise awareness of what people are missing in passing them by.

On average black cats take a week longer to rehome. Let’s make it a day to remember and here’s to getting those 1,400 black cats currently in Cats Protection’s care a loving new home.
