For some odd reason, many people associate black cats with evil, when the truth is that they should associate evil with unthinking, selfish people (think politicians and corporate executives). The result is that black cats tend to be adopted at a slower rate than other cats, solely because of the color of their fur.

That’s why today is National Black Cat Day to highlight the joys of owning a black cat despite any superstitious nonsense associated with black cats. Black cats can be just as loving as any other cat. In fact, they can be more lovable than 99% of the people you meet at work or in the public, so don’t judge a black cat because of the color of its fur.
