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. They are usually the last to be adopted and the first to euthanised. Some organisations do not even allow the adoption of black cats in October for fear of animal cruelty!

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!
