    How sad! My friend had a couple of black cats along with her others. One of them did exercises with me while I was pregnant, we have a picture of it, quite funny. Black cats are silky and smooth. I like smooth, silky, black hair on people too!

    Too many people nowadays are too superstitious.

    As well as already living in fear, so I could see a low rate on black cats.

    I own two cats- neither of them are black.

    balck and cats doesnt go hand in hand, they are scary, people tend to be more scared of black animals, plus their eyes are glowing at night...

    I've had black dogs, and I've been around black cats. I like them, because I like the colour black.

    I did have a bad experience once though with black cats. I saw a couple of black cats in the neighbourhood, and during the week I had this pretty horrific nightmare which involved black cats.

    This is odd, I've never heard of anyone specifically not choosing a black cat because it was black.

    He was 17 years old, and the nicest and friendliest cat I have ever known.

      I am SO sorry to hear that!

      I love cats.  ALL types and Especially black ones.

      My pitch-black cat named *MIDNIGHT* is totally the most awesome cat I have.

    I love black cats and have never heard of anyone saying they didn't like a cat because of it being black.  Either people like them or they don't.  I at this time have one black cat and two black dogs.

    I am a proud owner of a beautifull BLACK CAT..OUR STORE IS EVEN NAMED THE BLACK CAT BOUTIQUE after her...

    People need to grow up and give up on allthe stuoid Black Cat myths, its simply the color of heir fur, they are like any other cat..I have the Black one and an orange tabby that looks like Morris from the commercials, and there is no difference..they are both simply cats, but hey do have different personalities, but all hmans do to..

    I would love to have a black cat and scare the heck out of my neighbors big_smile. Seriously, I would love to have one if I don't have dogs already (they chase all the cats that they see sad).

    I like black cats, they are misterious and I like the fact that my friends feel somehow intimidated by my little pussy cat!

    I adopted a black kitten for my ex as a Christmas present. Probably why we broke up. Nah, I'm not superstitious, she just sucked.

    I think Black Cats are mysterious and if I see one, I love the challenge to see if it will come over to me. About half the time they don't but maybe that is because they know I won't give them any food for their efforts!

    I think if anyone wants a cat, they generally will not shy away because it has black fur. If anything, they will judge the cat on it's behavour before deciding on whether or not to take it home.

    Though not pure breed black cats I think are more adored than other common domestics. This is thanks to the media and Halloween of course but it is far from true that nobody wants them. smile

    Granted, cats and dogs are in excess so in general there are many unwanted ones since people don't know when to NOT breed...

    Adopt fosho.

    My daughter's cat is black, and my son's cat (no relation to my daughter's) is black.  My daughter's best friend's cat is black.  Our next door neighbor has an adorable black cat who has made himself our little friend too.  Based only on all those black cats around me, I'm not under the impression people don't want them.  smile  (I know some people are superstitious, though - maybe just not in my little circle.  lol )

    I've had two black cats at once, one passed last year, old age sucks. but ya, nobody wants black cats from the spca, and they don't let them get adopted around Halloween, at least here, because people are insane.

    I know it will sound funny. I have heard that your day becomes unlucky if a black cat crosses your way tongue

    Black cats don't get eaten at night....

    I think the majority of my friends who have cats have black cats actually.

    I have adopted a black cat as it had been abandoned by the neighbor beneath our apartment when they moved out. She is great at catching mice in our old tenement apartment, the only disadvantage to a black cat is trying to not trip over them at night.

        Exactly, we only noticed as she was a fairly fat cat but over the course of a month was getting thinner and thinner.

    I like the black color but I am scared of black cats. and somehow in most horror serials they associate black cats with ghosts and other evil things. Though I have never seen a ghost myself but still I'm scared of it. In the day time I really have no problems with black cats but at night it will of course frighten me to death. I 've cats in my neighborhood and I feed them sometimes when they come over to my place.
