Happy National Black Cat Appreciation Day

Need a cure for the Monday blues? Our photo feature is here to help provide a brief diversion from your workday routine with a small dose of squee, wow and awwww. Enjoy!

Bad luck? No way! Sadly though, black cats do sometimes have a tough time finding homes. So National Black Cat Appreciation Day was created to help dispel superstitions and, instead, promote the beauty of coal-colored kitties. This August 17, join us in celebrating national black cat day 2016 by enjoying some photos of black cats who just happen to need homes.  Perhaps one of these images may be just the inspiration to adopt a mini black panther yourself.
