Top 10 Best Things About Black Cats

Black cats are some of the best cats around – ask anyone who is lucky enough to have one in their lives.  Sadly though, black cats are usually the last to be adopted, despite the fact they’re just as loving and wonderful as a cat of any other color.  A quarter of the cats we currently have for adoption are black.  Most of them are adults, further lowering their chances of adoption.

In honor of Black Cat Day, here are the Top 10 Best Things About Black Cats featuring some of our very own kitties currently up for adoption:
