C’mon guys, adopt a Black Cat!
Harvey :- Silver, what’s this about August the 17th being Black Cat Appreciation Day? I’m white and I don’t have a special day of my own?
Silver :- * looks up from his laptop* Well, Harvey, no, but you are not considered unlucky, or evil. Black Cat Appreciation day is when we point out all the good things black cats are and stamp hard on the ugly untruths. Mum told me these ancient superstitions and lies come from the Middle Ages in Europe (before the USA was even born)!  The Middle Ages was, in case you didn’t know – about 500 to 1500 AD.
Harvey :-  * indignant * But, but…. but….. Black Cats are not lucky or unlucky they are just cats of a different colour!

Black Cats make Awesome Bloggers!
Silver :- * thinks * OK Harvey, we can be an help for friends can’t we.  I had better get a couple of tips down for pals to share!
Harvey :- Too right Silver mate, go for it!

  • See a cat adoption on the horizon? Adopt a black cat – go on make it TWO for the company they give each other when you need to work, and for the fun you will have with two kitties when you get home.
  • Our favourite ‘black panfurs’ are Panky and Troyer – much loved pals of @EdnaAtNutro a Twitter pal of ours Check the pictures, and the lovely quotes Miss Edna finds. She loves her Black Cats!
  • If you already have a black cat, or know a black cat or two, or three, spread the word to squash the frightening misinformation and superstition that puts Black Cats AND Dogs at risk of a much earlier death.
  • Let the world know you love Black Cats. Positive comments, thoughts and images shape how we think – so let’s make Black Cat Appreciation day a top priority.

    We are fans of cats of all colors but having had two black cats we can say that they are not evil or unlucky but they are lovable and deserve a good home just like any other cat.

    I am sure that someday my human will have another black cat in her life. Her parents have almost always had one.

    We agree with you, it make no sense to say that some colors are more or less adoptable than others ! We hope that this special day can help black cats ! Purrs
