Black cats don't always have the best rep - shelters report they have lower adoption rates than animals of any other color. This is totally crazy, of course, since black cats are in fact utterly purrfect specimens of feline-kind. Here are just a few reasons to appreciate them.

1. Like a tuxedo or little black dress, black cats have a timeless sophistication and grace.

In the end, of course... All cats are the best cats. When you're adopting one, choose a cat whose personality fits your lifestyle and who you connect with - not based on a color!
