Debunking the Black Cat Myth
A common question asked by our volunteers is “Why do black cats have such a hard time finding homes?“. Sadly black cats have long been considered bad luck, and have unfairly been linked to witchcraft and superstition for centuries, but anyone who has adopted or met a black cat will agree that this is not true! For the month of February ALL of our black cats over the age of 8 months have a reduced adoption fee of $100 (vs. $175) in an effort to help them get adopted and debunk the classic negative black cat myths. View their profiles now!
Black Cats Are Often Unwanted: True.
Sadly black cats are the hardest cats (or kittens) to get adopted. In fact, they are only half as likely to find homes as more colourful cats. Certainly very unfair and unjustified, as they are beautiful on the inside and out! Help set the record straight and adopt Ella for some added sweetness this February! ADOPTED!!
Black Cats Bring Bad Luck: False.
In reality the color of a cat’s coat has nothing to do with bringing you good or bad luck. Did you know that in Japan and the British Isles black cats are thought to bring good luck? We know many adopters of black cats who would agree, and feel very lucky to have their feline friend! Adopt gorgeous Audrey for some extra luck this February… and always! ADOPTED!
There is nothing evil about playing or trying to sneak onto your lap for some cuddles. If you are lucky (and remember you will have extra luck with a black cat in your home) a black feline will greet you with a little nuzzle, purr, lick or meow to make you feel loved. Does that sound evil? We think not. Adopt Nunu for some added fun in the home!
Black Cats Make Awesome Companions! True.
Black cats may get a bad rap, but really they are just as lovable as the next furry feline. Help us turn their luck around and adopt a new family member. Help break the black cat myth spell and adopt Moon this February… she has been waiting for years, she is purr-fect and she has been ADOPTED!!
Please share this cat feature with your friends and family and help our black cats find loving and deserving homes this February.
