Black Cat Appreciation Day 2015

To celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day, here's a little picture from a while back...

Its an imaginative characture of our own little black cat, Twinkly, who we sadly lost cancer in 2013 at the age of 12. Second-in-command to our matriarch Jelly and mother to Pumpkin, Twinky was a tough little cookie. Rescued from the drains at just a couple of months old and having been chewed on by rats and ants, she made a swift recovery and grew into a strong, independent - albeit stunted - cat.

We miss her dearly, but can definitely say, from firsthand experience that black cats are very special, and very cool!

Because of superstitious beliefs in some cultures, black cats are sometimes associated with bad luck and, sadly, are more likely to be put to sleep or wait a long time to be adopted from shelters. Black Cat Appreciation Day was launched to show people that a black cat could be the perfect cat for them, and help raise awareness about black cats in general.

 If you’ve been looking for a rescue cat yourself, why not consider a black cat? Not only are the superstitions about them bringing bad luck completely untrue, but you might find a black cat to be a fantastic feline companion for you!

Check out these 10 reasons why you should adopt a black cat.
