Black cats bring good luck...especially if you wear black pants.;-)
Awwww. Too cute. I have a black cat and he definitely brings lots of luck and lots of love. :)
So did mine until the day he died at a biblical age! :)
I'm so sorry for your loss, TA, but I'm so glad that your baby got to live a long life filled with love. :) My cat is 8 years old, but still thinks he's a kitten. Heh. I've only had him for 2 years--he just showed up in my neighborhood one day, and it was love at first sight. :)
That's pretty much Gypsy's story as well (hence the name)! A skinny, dusty-gray fur ball who showed up in the neighborhood one day and, on closer inspection (helped by frequent and diligent combing and plenty of food) proved to be a gorgeous, loving, gentle, faithful, silk-furred and generally adorable four-pawed gentleman.

And talk about "still thinks (s)he's a kitten" -- not Gypsy but Holly, the only one of my cats who is still around! I adopted her when she really WAS a kitten ... in her own mind, she's apparently never really grown up. Except for being much more lazy now, thank God; when she was a baby, a bouncing ball had absolutely nothing on her! :)

Aaahhh, cats ...

They say that black cats are the hardest to rehome in shelters :(

Yeah, it's sad. They tend to be active but easy going and friendly. Superstitions are fine when they don't defame anyone.
What gorgeous kitties.

OMG, that second one looks just like my little kitty Angel. She was so small. Not even a week old when some stray dogs got her momma, I raised her with a medicine dropper. She's now big, healthy and I think I gave her the wrong name Lol. Such cute kittens and cats. Yep, I think the white cat crowd is behind all the bad luck misinformation too :)

Aww, I didn't know that SilverThistle. That's a shame, they have so much to offer. The only thing I hate is that they're invisible in the dark lol. Other than that every black cat I've ever owned has been nothing but a blessing.

I have a black and white cat, Trinity, but the white is on her tummy, so when she's curled up on our black suede couches she's nearly invisible and nearly gets herself sat on weekly by both human and dog alike.

If you are looking for black cats in books, don't forget "The Master and Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov :)
