Black Cat Appreciation Day

Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day!!  

Did you know that black cats are less likely to get adopted from shelters than their more colorful friends?  We don't understand why; black kitties make wonderful companions!  

To celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day, we'd like to tell you about a few of our special friends at Cat Care Society in hopes that these wonderful black kitties will find the purrfect home.  


Whenever I visit Cat Care Society, I really enjoy spending time with Cairo.  She's a very sweet, beautiful black lady cat.  She enjoys being pet and brushed.  She also likes playing with toys when you drag them on the ground for her.  

Cairo is 13 years young.  Her age qualifies her for the Perpet-U-Care program, which will pay for a portion of her medical care for the rest of her life.  She came to the shelter when her human passed away and would love to find another great home.  She is spayed, litter box trained, and up-to-date on her vaccinations.  You can find her in the upstairs hallway at the shelter.


Brietta is a very sweet and friendly black lady cat.  She can be nervous at first, but once she gets to know you, she is very affectionate.  Sometimes she'll even sit in your lap.  

Brietta is a special needs cat.  I know she has arthritis, but I'm not sure if she has any other medical conditions.  She is 13 years young and also qualifies for the Perpet-U-Care program.  She is already spayed, litter box trained, and up-to-date on her vaccinations.  You can also find her in the upstairs hallway at the shelter.


Tara is an affectionate medium hair black lady cat.  She is active and likes catnip and playing with toys.  She doesn't really enjoy being picked up, but she'll sit right next to you, and sometimes she'll even jump into your lap.  

Tara is 14 years young, which means she qualifies for the Perpet-U-Care program.  She is spayed, litter box trained, and up-to-date on her vaccinations.  She prefers a home without dogs.  You can find her in the upstairs hallway at Cat Care Society.

Cat Care Society is located at 5787 W. 6th Avenue.  

Cairo, Brietta, and Tara will make someone fantastic companions.  If you have room in your heart and home for any of these loving kitties, please visit or call the shelter to learn more about them.  You can visit Cat Care's website here.

  11. Thanks for celebrating the black ones. I love black kitties - so sleek and plush.

  12. They're BEAUTIFUL! Black cats ARE beautiful. Don't know why some peeps don't get that. Weird. They're really gorgeous, for sure


  13. Furry beautifur kitties, all of them.Black kitties are as sweet and loving as any other. We would love one, but, well meowmy is allergic to non-orientals, weird but true...sigh...she has lots of really strange ones. Isn't it fun to be unique? MOL!

    We hope those kitties find new homes to call their own.

  14. We love black kitties!! They are so beautiful. Our mom's first cat as a child was a black cat named Madeline. She was wonderful. We just don't understand why black cats are adopted less. We hope these ones you've shared find homes soon!
