What a really interesting article. Ginger cats will always be my favorite. I don't own an all black, but, that will be my next cat. They are the angels of my shelter, and are highly adoptable.

Think only one of my balcks was a tabby. Doesn't make much difference tho - black is beautiful, so are all the other assorted colors of cats.
