I have had black cats, and they sweet and affectionate. They are my favorites.

Thanks for this story. My family has never gone without a black cat for very long, over the years. We have never bought into the negative light in which black cats are often portrayed. At the current time, we have a black cat "with an attitude" named Sascha.

Since Bete Noir showed up at my house and adopted me, every day is Black Cat day, and he sure is appreciated.
Great cause. Like black dogs, black cats have less of a chance of adoption.

I had no idea that there was such a day! But I love black cats, I think they are gorgeous, and all the black cats I've ever known were extremely loving. If I weren't allergic to cats I would have one!

I LOVE black cats. My own cat is black, apart from a little whit mark under his chin, making him look like a reverend. I would always choose a black cat, because I know less people seem to want them.

TY Simone.
Two out of five of my kitties are black. This is why I have them - no one wanted them. Silly people, they have no idea what they're missing. Toby - short for October - is the nieghborhood's greeter kitty. He loves everybody and kids love him. He only goes out when I can keep on eye on him, though. You never know :(

Thanks for posting. I love black cats and we have 2. I am sorry I didn't find out about this appreciation day until after it was over. We will celebrate late and remember to mark August 17th on our calender for next year.
