My first cat was a tuxedo cat. My current cat is almost all black, with just a bit of white on his belly. His name is Tommy and he’s such a sweet, friendly loveable guy. I don’t have any photos though, they’re all on my computer and I’m using FI’s computer since it’s waaaaay faster…

I have a black kitty and she’s wonderful. Sadly, she’s a recluse and avoids cameras like the plague, so the only time she shows up in pictures is as a black blur.

I love my black cats! They are so different and so alike at the same time.

Here’s Felix.

My parents have a black cat named Little Doug that I adopted from a shelter on their behalf while I was in college. He and their orange tabby Mr. Kitty are best friends and spend all day playing and lounging together. This is an old picture but you get the idea:

 

Another six months later Little Doug is probably pushing 14 pounds or so and is getting chubby. He’s bigger than Mr. Kitty now.

Now that my fiance and I have our own apartment, we also adopted a bonded pair of cats. One is a flame point Himalayan and the other is a striking black and gray domestic longhair. Unfortunately I don’t have any pics of them though since I haven’t been able to find the camera since we moved!

@roxy821:  I’d never heard that about black dogs before, especially the racism thing! I have a black lab mix (he’s part Australian blue heeler, also, so he’s on the shorter side, plus some other muttly things that make him stocky and very solid) that people have been afraid of, but that’s usually because he expresses his excitement by running up and hopping up and down as he goes and it makes him let out these little gruff barks. And also because he especially likes to do this at night, where people can’t see him. Personally, I think it’s hilarious to see people be totally shocked when he’s suddenly RIGHT THERE because they didn’t see him coming. (He’s always on a leash, don’t worry.)

Anyway, I did know about the issues with black cats. This story is a bit of a downer, but I recently worked for a pet cremation company (while heartbreaking, it was amazing to be able to help people find the closure they needed, especially when a large chunk of society looks at being devastated over a pet’s death as something silly or ridiculous or eyeroll-worthy. It was the best job I’ve ever had and the one I believed in most) and most of the strays that were brought in were black cats, as well as those that died in the shelters. We also had an influx during the weeks surrounding Halloween because of all sorts of nasty “rituals” involving black cat torture. 

On a much happier note, my parents have a black cat called (creatively) BC — for Black Cat. Over the years, he transitioned into an out door cat, which I hated to see happen, but he sticks around their house, which I appreciate. He’ll materialize from the shadows and sit outside the window and start talking. And then when you say, “Hey, BC!”, he keeps meowing and carrying on a very loud conversation until he gets bored and eats.
