Black Friday is a great time to raise awareness about black cats.  Did you know that
black cats are the least likely to be adopted?

Here are some silly reasons to adopt a black cat:
1. They will look adorable in your Halloween photos
2. They like to dress up and wear ties (see Nibbles above)
3. They have the finest tastes
4. You can impress your friends by naming your cat something non-traditional or post-modern, like Sparkles, Snow, or Spot.  Or heck, go with the cliché Midnight – there’s a reason it’s popular!
5. Black is slimming – being around a black cat makes you look great!
6. Black cats are considered lucky in some cultures.  Who doesn’t need a little extra luck now and then?!
