Black Cat Appreciation Day, August 17th

In honor of Black Cat Appreciation Day, here are just a few of the black cats we've known and loved.  Especially Mr. Kitty, our "favorite" if there can be such a thing.

Black cats are often overlooked in shelters and rescues (so are black dogs), and have been given a bad rap with all that "crossing your path" baloney.

Give a black cat a chance!  If you're thinking of adopting, don't skip over them at the shelter.  If you see a black cat cross YOUR path, maybe, just maybe it's a sign of good luck.

Here are our black beauties:

Mr. Kitty (ok, yeah, he was allowed on the table!)

Mr. Kitty, we loved you so, and still do
