Beauty thy colour is black…thy name is cat #thepussycatriot


Misguided beliefs and stupid superstition lead to Black cats being the least likely to be adopted from shelters..leading to larger kill rates…

Surely an enlightened society can see this is unacceptable..i have had the honour of sharing my life with 5 Black cats..and I would like to share Cleo the fifth of our Black Cats with you…

She is beautiful..photogenic…fun..cuddly…curious…and all these attributes come from within her fur…she would have them no matter what her fur colour..she is as individual as you and I…imagine missing out on all she is because of this ridiculous bias.

  1. I agree, black mini panthers are beautiful… look what the light does with her fur, no other color has so much nuances than black. Even the Stones loved this color and tried to paint all things black :o)

  2. Cleo is a most gorgeous and sleek panther girl……….we’ve never understood the black cat thing other than people ignorantly believing in old tales of witchcraft and black cats! Such a shame too because black cats are so pretty and shiny and their eyes shine SO bright in that black fur……….Maybe one day people won’t judge a book by its’ cover?? (!!)

    Hugs, Sammy and Mom

  4. We’re on to our third beautiful black panther. They are gorgeous and photogenic – only problem being you really need to capture them outside as their shiny black fur does make photographing them with flash difficult πŸ˜‰ Cleo is stunning and your photos do her real justice. As for the prejudice which leaves black animals in shelters, go figure 😦

  5. Beautiful Cleo. Black cats are supposed to be lucky, so can’t understand why people don’t want them.

    Polly says ‘Us black beauties have to stick together and spread the word on how fab we are’.

  6. Well we know some hoomins are very ignorant and too stupid to know they are ignorant….I know that seems harsh but what else can I say….to be black is to be different and I always thought different was good. More fun with someone different….they have different experiences and see things in another way….thusly…are fun.

    sloppy kisses to you Cleo,

  8. I adore black cats, and she is no exception. Just beautiful! I am a bit of a witch though! haha! only joking, it IS a serious issue and I can’t quite believe in this day and age it still makes so much of a difference. It’s sad, what’s worse is that we are the ‘superior race’ apparently. Poppycock, Bev, Poppycock!
    Hugs, Carrie and Pups x

  9. SHE saw an article in the US trying to get black dogs adopted. Apparently they are usually overlooked by people. We dogs, on the other hand will chase ANY cat.
