Did you know that black cats have the lowest adoption rate and the highest euthanasia rate? Why? We're not quite sure. Maybe it's the superstition factor. Some people say they can't see or make a connection with a black cat in a poorly lit kennel. And for folks browsing the internet for pets, black cats don't always show up in photographs as well as their lighter colored brethren. For whatever reason, black cats are statistically less likely to be adopted than more brightly colored felines. Black cats are also most often ignored by many rescue groups because they are so hard to place. These cats are often left waiting in pounds and shelters with hopes of finding a loving home, only to be destroyed once their time is up. It’s All About the Cats does not discriminate based on color. It is true that our black cats often take longer to find homes – and that they take up much needed foster space during this time. But our philosophy is that Black Cats need Love and a Safe Home Too. Well hey there, ho there! My name is Jackie O and I'm one swell of a cat. I'm about 2 years old. I'm quite young if you consider cats can live up 20 years or more! I was just rescued from a crowded shelter. Everyone kept overlooking me--I have dark fur and it made it hard for people to see me in the cage. I'm a young cat with beautiful, soft, shiny black fur and bright round eyes. I'm such a beauty wouldn't you say? I am an absolute LOVE BUG! I cannot get enough! I will let you hold me any which way and will even let you scratch my belly! I have a cute little white belly too! I will lay on your lap... I will follow you around the house. Attention please I will demand with my cute meow! I dream about the day I get to go to my forever home where I can be spoiled to pieces! I get along okay with the other cats in the house but since I'm new I keep my distance from them. I wouldn't mind being your one and only so I can get all the lovin'!
