There have been many recent reports in the Press about how black cats are being discriminated against simply because of their colour! Unfortunately it seems black cats do not photograph as well as other cats and so do not make good companions in selfies. The fact that it’s hard to ‘show off’ your cat on social media has led to black cats being rejected and sent to shelters where, because of the same reason they are not being re-homed as quickly as other cats. In some cases they are not able to be re-homed at all!
