    On our local Cats Protection page, they commented that black cats don't get adopted often. Its so sad. We have a black kitten and he is the cutest little thing.

  • Our Libs and Daisy are both from rescue centres. So were our other cats Fred, Smudge, Spud (all black) and Jess. Hamish we fostered for a friend.
    I just don't get what sort of mentality makes someone dump an animal, if I start talking about it I may start enunciating expletives in a very unladylike manner - just don't get it at all. If you haven't the money to care for an animal take it to a rescue centre but don't dump it.

  • Black cats and dogs have always been the hardest colour to rehome, even before the selfie craze started. Some people see them as unlucky, and I guess they're often overlooked in favour of more 'interesting' colours :(


    As a child, I had a black cat and a black dog and they were both lovely. In the future i'd like to adopt a black Staffie (which happens to be the hardest breed to find homes for, as well as the hardest colour!), I love black dogs :wub:

    I've been tripping from sipping the dripping dirty water tap,
    i've been thinking i'm drinking too many drinks all by myself.
    I've been poking a voodoo doll that you do not know I made, for you, of you.
