We've always had both dogs and cats but in the last two years we lost our mastiffs to old age, so now it's my wife and me and our cat family. We're partial to black cats since they're so loving and beautiful but are the most overlooked for adoption. Pictured here are our black cats Barnabas and Spooky and our black/white cats Baby and Oreo. Resized95IMG952017050795104937.jpg

Adorable! I wonder why black cats are difficult to adopt out? Black cats are my favorite DSH. I kind of wish I had one.

I think a lot of it has to do with superstition and the stigma they've developed from that over the years. People think they are mean or evil and nothing could be further from the truth. They are super sweet, loving cats.

Some people don't like black cats because of superstition.

When we came back from overseas with our 3 cats...........1 was a black smoke persian and 2 of his off spring that were mostly black all with green eyes.
We were out front of LAX waiting for Hubby to go find our vehicle in the parking lot...........that was an adventure and another story all together.

Anyway I had the 3 kennels stacked up against the wall along with our luggage and a lady came by and asked if her daughter could look at them.  
I said yes so she bent down to look and started freaking out.  She was very superstitious about black cats for sure.
Told her kids to get away and don't look...........there are black cats in there and started yelling something.......I have no idea what.
Then they jumped into a car a sped away.

My daughters who were 8 and 12 are looking at me asking what is wrong.
I was freaked out after that because there was a lot of tension still going on in LA at the time.  This was not long after the riots in '92 (ooppss just told you how old i am lol).
I at this point just want to get out of there quickly.

You have very beautiful cats!  We used to have cats and dogs, now we just have dogs since our last one had passed away a few years ago.  I loved having both as the cats always kept the dogs on their toes.  [smile]
