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 created to show people that a black cat could be the perfect addition to their family, and help raise awareness about black cats in general.

If you’ve been looking for a rescue cat, why not consider a black cat? Not only are the superstitions about them bringing bad luck completely untrue, but you might find a black cat to be a fantastic feline companion for you!
If you already have a black cat in your family, we would love to see their photos. Share them with us on our Facebook page!
