I always wanted an all black cat, since I was a little girl. My mother didn't want to get one for whatever reason, superstition most likely. I moved out of her house into my own apartment and within 2 weeks had adopted Midnight, an all black cat who was 6 months old at the time, from the local SPCA. He will be 11 next month.
Our most recent addition to the Pride is Romeo, an all-black domestic medium hair, also from the SPCA. It's funny looking at the 2 black cats together and seeing how alike and how different they look at the same time.
