Hey, Little Appreciation, OK?

Today happens to be Black Cat Appreciation Day! These little critters were adopted from Wonder Cat Rescue in San Francisco. Photos by The Furrtographer, of course.




  1. Black cats are gorgeous!

  2. The Little Myrmidon says:

    We have a black cat (Midnight) and she is beautiful, but pure evil.

  3. Black cats do have a bit of a negative rep because of superstition but that mystique also makes them kind of cool and black cats are still cute.

  4. I Love this guys super whiskery eyebrows!

  5. I’ve had some AMAZING black cats over the years.

  6. Wackadoodle eyes in second picture! BTW, I love black kitties!

  7. My boy Pushkin says “Black cats are the greatest!”

  8. Black cats are really cool. I can’t wait to adopt one. 🙂

  9. AWW 😀 I so want to adopt a black kitty or two or three or more in the near future 😀

  10. Black kitties have the softest, plushest fur. I don’t know why but they do.

  11. 5 out of our 6 cats were inkies. They are sweethearts.

    I heart black kitties!! They are so “Halloween” which is obviously a big plus and never a minus!! 🙂

  13. It’s Toothless in the second picture!

  14. I love black kitties too! Had one growing up named Midnight (a male), an almost completely black Tortie named Diana (until 2012-still miss her!), and a female one now that I named Shakira, after a female character in Warlord comic books, who could shape-shift between a human and a black cat. Love those black cat eyes, too!

  15. Emmberrann says:

    Not so much “Toothless” as Clawful! Not to mention the wackadoodle eyes!

  16. Very “toothless.” Every time I watch that movie, I have to go hunt down my black kitty for a hug. If I can’t have a giant, purple dragon, at least I can have a little black overlord, uh, kitty.

  17. Totally Jersey says:

    In response to my friend’s freakout about a black cat crossing her path, I responded with this:
    “I have a three-legged black cat who sprints zig-zags in front of me, drapes himself across me, and drools on me multiple times daily. I think you’ll be just fine.”

  18. Totally Jersey says:

    I am a chat noir lady for life. Viva Black Cat Appreciation Day!

  19. Yes, definitely resembles toothless in pic #2. 🙂

  20. I read that some silly people don`t like black cats because they are hard to photograph for selfies! Seriously, black cats have a hard time finding homes – promote them like crazy!

  21. Black fur, yellow eyes, against a purple background. Nice color choices, Furtographer! Meow!
