Black Cat Appreciation Thread

(93 Posts)

I love black cats. I love the way sometimes they look like four-legged holes in reality, and the way they disappear all except their eyes when sitting in a dark spot. It makes me really sad that they're so often the last to be adopted at rescue centres, because people are superstitious about them.

So I'm starting a black cat appreciation thread! I'll come back shortly on my phone and post some pictures of our black rescue boycat - please come and show me pictures of your own black cats or just random black cat pictures off the internet if you don't have one. grin

Yay! Mine is a 4 year old female and she is a grumpy cow but I love her! We got her from a rescue centre. She was the last one and the staff said they had trouble homing black cats sad

Hopelass LOVE that upside down sleepy picture. "Can't talk, snoozing. Unless you have something nice for me to eat could you come back later?"

Also, can I add that another excellent thing about black cats is that sometimes if you look at them in the right light you can see they're black with black stripes grin

Splendid cat, Meow smile

Here's my boy in his favourite spot. Black cats rock.

I love black cats. I had the privilege of having one.
He was a total loon, a complete massacre of wildlife and a total idiot when it came to roads.
He liked going for walks with me.
Sadly he died after being run over for a second time, after I had him for just over a year.
Will always miss him. sad

My black cat is a black cat with stripes! He has white feet though and a white chin so isn't fully black, though we love him.

My old cat was black too. He was a giant. We miss him.

does a black and gold cat count? this is teddy and she has a ginger wig so we sometimes call her Donald Trump. also a Ziggy Stardust face, one white paw and a tiger stripe at the tip of her tail. she is bonkers.

Somebody is trying to get me to adopt a black stray... I would love to but am away for extended periods of time so its not fair on the little moggy. He is beautiful and the adoption people are trying to help with solutions

My beautiful 3 legged boy who passed away in November. The most gentle soul. Miss his sweet face sad

OTheHugeManatee Sat 13-Feb-16 16:17:06

So many gorgeous cats! ❤️

Potap - what breed is your cat that's black with black spots? I want one

OTheHugeManatee Sat 13-Feb-16 16:19:59

PS Here's boycat again, showing off his adorable black boots.

JeepersMcoy Sat 13-Feb-16 16:27:48

I adore our 2 boys. They often walk us down the road and its like having 2 small panthers. We are quite famous down or way. grin

Roseberrry Sat 13-Feb-16 16:34:15

Oh I love this! I've never understood why they're always last to be adopted, they're beautiful smile

Here is mine. I've had him since I was 11, he's been everywhere with me. He was a rescue and to be quite honest was a horror up until he was about 9. He's really mellowed out since then. Think he's on his last legs now though sad

Here's my black Devon Rex boy - Bertie (Bassett)
