Black Cat Love

Because of superstitious beliefs in some cultures, black cats are sometimes associated with bad luck and, sadly, are more likely to be put to sleep or wait a long time to be adopted from shelters.

Black Cat Appreciation Day was launched to show people that a black cat could be the perfect cat for them, and help raise awareness about black cats in general. – DotY

Black Cat Appreciation Day 2018

What you can do to promote black cats in a positive way:

  • Politely disagree with anyone voicing negative opinions. They are the same as any other cat. One crazy Pope blamed them hundreds of years ago – still the label sticks. This is wrong and it stinks!
  • Black cats bring you luck. My mum had a wedding charm to carry up the aisle and it was a silver horseshoe with a black cat nestled in it!
  • “Put your lab coat and goggles on: Researchers at the National Institutes of Health discovered that the genetic mutations that cause cats to have black coats may offer them some protection from diseases.” – Spruce Pets
  • Adopt a black cat FIRST. They are less likely to be adopted due to fear and ignorance. Fight this ignorance, adopt a black cat into your family today.
  • If you can’t so that, sponsor a black cat at a local shelter. Let them know Black Cats Matter!

To anyone who has shelter black cat love, Thank You. You have saved a life that might have had no hope, due to human failure, human lack of knowledge and stupidity. Yeah, we said it, we think people who hate black cats are stupid.

So support your local black cats today on Black cat Appreciation Day 2018. Be Black and Proud kitties!

  1. I have always LOVED black cats, I think they’re the most sleek beautiful kitties! Being a New Yorker, for us Black is always in fashion!! One of my favorite works of art is the Chat Noir portrait. Thanks for this great post, and for pointing out that the color black in cats is genetic.
    Love & Biscuits,
    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  2. Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day, sweet friends! It’s true … Black Cats ROCK! Of course, we are slightly biased … we love our housepanthers Gracie and Ava, and our Angel Zoe. 🙂
