We Love Black Cats

Hug a black cat today

Here at Modern Cat love black cats. We can’t understand why they have the lowest adoption rates because they are as sweet, wonderful, and loving as any other cat. Luckily, the lovely people at the ASPCA have a whole day dedicated to Black Cats. They’ve even come up with this handy-dandy list of reasons why you should love a black cat:

  • Black cats go with everything—and they’ll never go out of style!
  • You can tell your kids you adopted a miniature panther.
  • Their fur won’t show on your little black dress.
  • In most cultures, black cats are a sign of good luck.

Looking to adopt a black cat, and make a new best friend? Check out the Black Cat Rescue! Another great organization taking care of these sadly underappreciated felines.

Let’s make every day Black Cat Appreciation Day!

    I have 2 black kitties. They are sometimes quiet but they turn my apartment into a race track. Chasing each other sometimes one will hide behind something then will jump on the other one and off they go again. They are Teo and TwoTwo sister and brother.

    I’m currently owned by my second black “Tuxedo” cat, so soft and cuddly, I count myself lucky anytime he curls up in my lap (or on my chest!) for naps or petting. My previous Little Man was with us for almost 20 years and he spoiled me for any other color when he passed. The black fur is breathtakingly beautiful, and if you’re lucky enough to have white whiskers and eyebrows … !! I’m convinced black cats have a special and unique personality.
