I had a black cat (RIP) and loved her to bits; she was absolutely stunning with a seriously large personality. I don't think we have the same level of prejudice here in Australia, as you rarely see a black cat in a shelter. I just love them.

I found an abandoned black feral kitten who was too young to eat on his own. I fed him kitten milk from a small bottle and that was four wars ago! He is a very faithful and lovingkitty and we are blessed to have him as a pet.

I love black cats so much! I wish I could rescue them all! My aunt had a black cat and she had to be very careful not to let it outside, as she always heard people make rude comments about her "unlucky" cat... she was afraid someone might try to hurt him if he got outside. Thank you for posting this!

People love black cats in Australia. In fact they are the first to go in s litter and tabbies are probably the last to go. People think it's cool to have a black cat here but most also just think they are beautiful. Many do think they are lucky or have s special good energy. Australia is s very secular county and not superstitious or connected to any religious beliefs
We have s black cat and she is not only beautiful to look at but sweet natured
