Whether it’s the superstition that it’s unlucky if a black cat crosses your path, or their age-old association with witchcraft, adoption rates are far lower than for their more colourful counterparts.

An old English myth says that if you give a black cat to a bride on her wedding day, it will bring her good luck. Sounds like a good enough reason to me!
