They’re not just for Halloween! Black cats are adorable in all seasons.

Did you know that black cat breeds are the most likely to be abandoned, and the least likely to be adopted from shelters? It’s sad, but it’s true, and there’s just no good reason for it.

Throughout history, black cats have been saddled with a host of associations, from prosperity and good luck in Egyptian and Celtic folklore, to dark magic and ill fortune in Continental Europe and North America. The early American Pilgrims thought that black cats were witch’s familiars, or even that they were demonic! On the other hand, sailors preferred black cat breeds for their ship’s cat because they were supposed to bring good luck. But black cats have a lot more to offer than whatever superstition says.

The Cat Fanciers’ Association recognizes these 22 black cat breeds, each with unique traits and personalities. Some are cuddly, some are quiet, but every black cat deserves to find its fur-ever home.
