Rescue groups and shelters alike have some of the most beautiful, hearty, and execptionally good natured black cats and kittens.
Sadly they get passed by for more colorful kitties. Domestic shorthair black cats are being euthanized in shelters more than any other cat and rescue groups find them the most difficult to place into safe and loving homes.
This is sad and heartbreaking because black cats are extremely intelligent, affectionate, and lack many of the health problems associated with other breeds.
Please consider adopting one of these wonderful bundles of personality and fun. Give them a chance to touch your heart and bring some love into your life! Call people who have black cats and hear their testimonies. We can assure you - you will have a change of heart.
