Cool Pets: Black Cats

Black cats aren’t just for Halloween season.

Black cats are most likely to be overlooked in favor of cats with more varied color patterns — and that may be due to superstition.

Here are five reasons why they make good pets:

  1. You can always find your black cat on any light-colored surface such as your carpet or your floral bedspread — or easily out in the snow.
  2. Black goes with everything — and chances are you won’t see their fur on your clothes, meaning you’ll go through less lint rollers.
  3. They look like a sophisticated little panther roaming around your home.
  4. When you love a black cat, luck is on your side.
  5. Black cats make great companions all year long.
