Why so selfish about Black Cats?

How can you resist this little fella?


You can’t right, well if that is the case then you don’t take ‘selfies’ with your Cat!

Apparently there is a growing trend in the UK, and probably everywhere else for that matter, of giving away Black Cats because, and wait for this you won’t believe it either! Black Cats don’t look good in selfies – selfies are the self taken pictures taken by people who are preoccupied with err… themselves, which are then sent to friends, who haven’t asked for them by mobile phones and tablets – Steve Jobs you have a lot to answer for!

It has been reported by no less an august organisation than the RSPCA that 70 per cent of more than 1,000 cats in their care in Britain are Black or Black and White and the same can be said for any number of animal sanctuaries around the UK.


First this Cat pleads with any nice, non-selfie taking people to adopt a Black or Black and White Cat as soon as you can, and secondly please stop anyone you see taking a picture with a ‘cuter’ Cat or at least get them to ask the Cat’s permission first.

Lastly it was mentioned, and I only include this tidbit in passing, that Tabby and White or Tabby Cats are the most photogenic. In an unrelated matter, have you seen the cover of my book?
