  5. @Brian, I agree! I learned A LOT that I never knew about black cats. I sooo wish I were allowed to have more pets here (we are only allowed 2) I would get a black cat with green eyes! :)

  7. I've heard about this form of prejudice (which is really what adherence to such a superstition boils down to) before, from several black-cat friends... but that doesn't mean I don't continue to be shocked and saddened by it. Personal preference for certain fur colors is one thing, but to not even be willing to consider adopting or purchasing a cat *because you think his/her fur is 'bad luck'*?? We might as well be living back in the Middle Ages, with that kind of attitude... :(

  8. I LOVE black cats! My uncle's black cat was twenty years old when he died and had the sweetest nature. The only reason I'm glad mine has some white on him is I can see him in the dark :>)

  11. That is a great video. My first cat was black, except for a tiny white under his chin. He was a great cat and lived to be 18. Mario is the 4th cat and he happens to be black and white, but I've never considered either of the black ones to be bad luck. The black cat/bad luck thing is just some dumb myth that's hung around even tho there is no truth to it.

  12. @Mario, yes I agree it is! (both a great video and a dumb myth!) So glad you enjoyed the video!

  14. Love this video! Love ALL cats of all colors, genders, ages, kinds, and species -- and the black cat has always had a very special place in my heart and home. Currently, it's Calo "The Gipsy King" who's our resident House Panther, very strong, protective, and affectionate, not to mention HANDSOME!

  15. What a great video! I had heard that black dogs are the least likely to be adopted, but somehow hadn't heard the same of cats. I have always firmly believed that it is GOOD luck to see a black cat.
