Do you like black cats?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
We brought home another cat - no, kitten, she's yang. So. She's black with white. and my husband loves her, though he says he doesn't like black cats.
And what colour do you like? Or Dislike?

I like all colors of cats, including black cats, which were once associated with witchcraft here in the U.S.

I owned an all black cat named Midnight for 13 1/2 years.

I really like grey cats, but I love all colours and patterns

So far I've had like.. 4 black cats? And one of them still lives with me right now. I can say from a foster moms stand point, these black cats can be pretty darn hard to adopt out!

Yes I like Black Cats too..... I had a marvelous boy a long time ago and he had golden eyes. I used to call him Sir, but he always reminded me of a warlord or similar. Slinky, shiny all black and he had a habit of looking right at you all the time as if he could put you under his spell by hypnotising you with his magnificant eyes.He was sadly missed when he died.

I adopted Midnight two weeks after moving into my own apartment, and we've been through it all ever since as a team! He will be 12 yrs old this year. I have always loved black cats and wanted one since I was a little girl.

Oh, I love black cats! for some reason they seem so noble... Including these pictures you posted here, guys! they are so beautiful

At the cat's shelter (CWSI) we have a huge handsome cat called Bagira. He is black like the night, and looks amazing!!! He's such a sweet giant!

I don't know. I'm up to 10 cats (including leo) and non of them are black. Black cats just don't seem to find me...and dh isn't going to let me have anymore kitties for a very long time...unless some new ones wonder up

I have 4 orange tabbies(Neo, moemoe, sherbert, and Leo)
4 white cats (Snowwhite, blizard, nimbus, stormy)
1 grey brown tabby (lilly)
1 grey and white (ashton)

No black kitties I have always wanted one sooooo bad. but i really am at my limit with cats! maybe one days one will wonder up

Here's Faile when she was about 3 months old.



And a little over 1 year. She has to get into anything that I put on the floor.



We had a black cat when I was a kid, too.

I also have an orange tabby. Here's Molly as a baby, maybe 4 months old.



And here she is now.

i met an all-black kitty prince, named Prince Arthur, at a recent cat show. He was GORGEOUS!! Shiny and slick hair, and very adorable and alert. His owner and i shared grooming tips, and he was a total sweetheart!

When i help out with kitty adoptions, i see that many potential adopters would not go for the black kitties at first. Many times, i blame it on the stories we were exposed to as kids, that associated black cats with witches, and with "evil." It is sad, but even to today, most black cats are very much badly misconstrued.

i have several outside kitties that are black and white -- Patches, Sally and Adonis (with orange specks), and they are so beautiful in my eyes.

i also like tabby cats as well, especially the orange tabbies, that resembles a mini tiger (see Brownie's pix below.)

i have two white kitties, and Venus was born deaf. i feel that white kitties are of pretty high maintenance. The dirt on a white kitty can not be "camouflaged" at all.

Personally, i feel how you bond and interact with your kitty matters a lot, as opposed to the color or the type of breed.

Cheers!

Did you know, that while in most of the world, black cats used to be considered "bad luck," in some places WHITE cats were bad luck? Can't remember where, it may have been Russia. A long time ago, of course . . . I thought it was an interesting factoid.

What's not to like?

I love all colors and sizes of cats! But, black ones are my all time favorite. Mostly due to my very first baby, Midnight. We just had a deep connection and I miss him dearly.

Vader, my big black cat is so affectionate! He thrives on attention from humans and the other cats!

A big black cat found me about this time last year - I know the stories of black cats being associated with witchcraft etc, well all I can say is utter rubbish!!!!

Ferdy is the sweetest, cuddliest and most affectionate of my 3 cats - he was a stray who had been hurt, and who would not have been here if we had not taken care of him and got him to the vet.

Hubby was adamant - sayin no more cats, 2 are enough . . . but it was actually HIM that suggested we adopt Ferdy. I'm so glad we did as I love the big old boy to bits.

Basically I don't think it matters what colour or breed of cat it is - all cats deserve love and a good home, and good luck/bad luck stories should not really be believed.

I love all cats. Even the hairless ones, but I prefer hair!

My very first cat was a long haired black cat names Sabrina, and I currently own an almost all black tuxedo named Trouble. When I got her the people I adopted her from said it was hard getting her a home because she was almost all black. Their loss, she is a little lovey!

My sister, Kathleen, had a black cat named Alexander. He was so beautiful and huge. The vet said he was one of the largest cat's he had ever seen. Not fat, just large. He was very social and when people saw him they would actually ask if he was a cat, because of his size. He was 15 years old when she had to put him down due to cancer. He was the best cat with the greatest personality. She really his death hard and did not get over the loss for years. She still cries when she talks about him. My sister is the one who talked me into adopting Max, she even paid the adoption fees for me.

Thanks Nunny, Kathleen now has one pure white kitty named Cleopatra (Cleo)and two cocker spaniel litter mates named Isabella (Bella) and Bartholomew (Bart). They are her children, as Kathleen and her husband John can't have any (human) children.

Well, my black cat is associated with witchcraft since his owner is a witch He's my familiar

Funny story though- the shelter we got Onyx from was getting all kinds of calls from people looking for kittens, but who wouldn't take Onyx because he was all black and 'bad luck'.
