    OMG – I love kitties with their tongues sticking out. We have one black, one orange, and 2 tigers.

    We also foster for the humane society so they all get some lovin and hope that makes them more lovable for people.

    I have had a black cats for the past 40 years….I just love them……as of now I have a small black female & a flame point siamese(not pure) so basically I have a black & a white cat, I have always wanted a pure white & a pure black cat, so I got pretty close with these two….

  4. Winston says:

    I love black cats… I’ll adopt a black cat next time I am adopting a kitten.

  5. Colleen says:

    My black cat is awesome too! Her name is Junior and she is my ‘scaredy cat’ (out of the five). She is afraid of everything. She is lazy and funny. She is adorable!!!

  6. Hanna says:

    It’s always seemed very silly to me – the stigma against black cats. I had a black cat growing up and she was sweet and amazing.

  7. Linda says:

    My black cat is lying right next to me as I type this. She is the love of my life. BLACK CATS RULE!! =^..^=

    There’s no such thing as a cat that isn’t just beautiful, and black kitties, with their fur so shiny, and almost blue-black, are just adorable! One favorite of Harriet’s and mine was Mr. Ralph, a beautiful, tall, lover of a cat who just adored us and our Jasmine–as well as his human dad. Personality? He had it! We miss him, and Jasmine, who actually liked him! They went to the Rainbow Bridge several months apart.

  9. Shadow says:

    I have had the pleasure of owning 3 black cats so far. They truly are awesome cats, and are full of personality! :)

  10. John says:

    I have a wonderful black cat–wouldn’t trade her for the world! Thanks for making this video and standing up for black cats everywhere.

  11. Bianca says:

    They are my top number 1 favourite the best to be adopted when I am able to!!!!!
    My lover (cat) was a black cat who talk to me during bad times, who cheered me up, who brighted my day! Miss him very much!

  12. Shelly Lyon says:

    Black kitties are exceedingly beautiful and wonderful.

  13. carole says:

    people are just ignorant.they should take a page from stevie wonder when you believe in things you dont understand you suffer.superstion aint the way.

  14. Kat says:

    I absolutely love black cats and this video is fantastic. Mary is my second black cat and my only issue with them is that if you forget to put the light on before you go up the stairs, you fall over them if they’re lurking there!

  15. Maysoun says:

    i love all kitties

  16. eva says:

    Thank you for posting this. It is true that black kittens and cats are less popular with adopters. And they are awesome – just as awesome as all cats!

  17. Courtney says:

    I don’t get it either. I think black cats are especially beautiful!

  18. KellyAnne says:

    Black cats are elegant and practical — they go with everything! I have a little black cat, and I adopted her specifically because black animals are less likely to get adopted. I’m lucky to have her.

  19. KellyAnne says:

    They are tricky to photograph, though — my beautiful black cat always ends up looking like a Rorschach test on camera.

  20. Jude says:

    thanks for sticking up for black cats and educating people that they are last to be adopted. people connect them with bad luck, sadly.

  21. katie says:

    All cats are beautiful no matter what colors they are. Old wives tale!!

  22. vonneybeth says:

    I just adopted a black cat and she’s a sweetheart. Cats are cats, no matter what colour they are, just like people.

  23. pumbie says:

    I find black cats to be gorgeous. It’s only because of superstition that they are refused; as if they had something to do with “bad luck” or so!!. In any case, it’s a stupid thing, they are as mischiveous, beautiful and funny as the rest of the cats. Are they “responsible” for their colour??. Long life to our beloved cats: all of them!!!.

  24. Angelique says:

    I love black cats. They are beautiful and their eyes look cool with the black fur around it.

  25. Lori says:

    my daughter always insisted in black kitties. . after her sweet fluffy pure black kitty(who had the longest nose we’ve ever seen on a kitty) named Morganna suddenly had to cross the bridge, she was heart broken but after a year she was ready again and when she went to the shelter and was over whelmed with white kitties,there all of a sudden a tiny black kitty ran right up her leg purring and kissing her.Luna has been her loving little clown with none stop face kissing ever since.Bcats rule!

  26. Peggy says:

    I have a black cat named Squeaky. He’s the greatest!

  27. Chris says:

    I have two black kitties – Chaos and Mayhem. They seem to have more personality than other sorts of kitties. I’ve never had trouble photographing them, either. :)

  28. Karin says:

    I had a black cat, her name was muffy and she was my best friend growing up. She was also a great friend to my mom after I left home.

  29. Hanah says:

    I have a black cat. She’s PURE black and so beautiful. She’s a little mean though, with slight mood swings. One second she’s purring and a second later, she biting and clawing me. But our whole family adore her, just bc she’s so cute.

    AND I have to agree with the guy in the video, yes, black cats are awesome :) actually, all cats are!

  30. Karen says:

    My sister has a black cat named Charlie and he’s beautiful! He has a really bright pink tongue which looks even pinker against his black fur (he licks his chops after having a yummy meal)!

  31. Lori says:

    Hanah,I had a pure grey kitty once,(Russian Blue)got her at 5 weeks old,she too would either puurr till drooling and then bang clawing,biting and hissing then leave,she never out grew that so she was named “Wild”,she grew to really protect me but I was never off the list,lol of a good hiss or claw. she lived to 20 yrs I guess Black,grey, calico ,it doesn’t matter, they know they rule.that’s what makes us love’em all the more.PS BK vid,awesome eyes,freakie even,luvs

  32. Dee says:

    I was just thinking about how much I love black cats this morning. They are the sweetest, most loving and funniest kitties. As a foster I have kept a few blackies born in my home because they don’t get adopted and rescue groups refuse to take them. Oh well it’s their lose and my gain.

  33. Shauna says:

    Shorty is so handsome! I’ve always wanted a black cat.

  34. Claudia says:

    Boring? Where? They rock! xo

  35. I have one. His name is Samson (named after my first cat Jake’s brother). He litterly came out of the woods behind my vet’s office. I had to wait to adopt him because I still had Jake (very sick) and I was going away for Christmas. When I came home I called the next day and picked him up. If your hand is any where near him he will lick it. I love him.

  36. Elaine H says:

    Thank you Shortythecat2010 (and to Salem for sending me the link)! I’m a huge fan of black cats, having adopted several in my life. There is something extra special about black cats. I think they have may more magic than other cats.
    P.S.- I just subscribed to your You Tube Channel! =^*^=

  37. Marsha says:

    I have 5 black cats, and I love them all to pieces!!!!

  38. Risa says:

    I LOVE Black cats! I wish I could have more:)

  39. NAN says:

    We have a black cat named ‘Duff’. He’s about 8 months old. We love him and he was born here on our property. Our other cat ‘Chant’ is a grey Hemingway cat(also born here) that really loves my husband and will immediately roll over for him when he sees him. It’s a riot. The 2 cats get along very well together. We call them ‘The boys’:-)

  40. Sue Bee says:

    That’s a bummer that black cats are the least adoptable; so unfair to these precious creatures! All my cats are rescues and usually there’s at least 1 black kitty in the bunch. Right now and for the past 11 years that honor has gone to my bestie Mr. Big! We bottle-fed him since he was the size of a tennis ball. Now he’s a very fluffy, fuzzy 14 pounder, that’s still a love-bug! These black kitties need a spokesperson to do a public service announcement about them!
