You’ve probably heard of “Black Dog Syndrome,” the term used to describe the phenomenon that makes potential adoptive families overlook dogs in shelters nationwide because of the color of their coats. But what many people don’t realize is that this same color bias also applies to cats.
There are no hard numbers, but informal surveys done at animal shelters show that black dogs AND black cats typically take much longer than animals with lighter-colored fur to be adopted (if they are adopted at all). Why? Possible reasons run the gamut from superstitions and negative connotations to the perception that it is more difficult for people to read the expressions on the face of a dark-furred pet.
To help combat this unfortunate prejudice, here is a top 10 list why we should all consider adopting a black cat or kitten:
#1: We are always sleek, stylish and elegant looking.
#2: You’ll never lose us in a snowstorm.
#3: Black fur won’t show up on your [chic] black clothing.
#4: Statistically speaking, we are friendlier than other cats.
#5: We are happier because we look thinner!
#6: In many cultures, we are considered GOOD luck.
#7: We can be slimming when draped over your lap.
#8: We can easily accessorize our collars because everything goes with black.
#9: We are always appropriately dressed at cocktail parties.
#10: We take the longest to get adopted and need your help the most!!!
Thank you to our generous sponsors of the black cats:
