We’ve Done It Again, We’re Famous!

Black Cat Rescue of Boston

We know we’re famous. We just have to wait for the rest of the world to find out.

And we couldn’t more pleased to use our stardom to help other black cats. One of our favorite family photos is included in their latest blog post “Black Cat St. Patrick’s Day” (bet you can’t guess which one that is), and we hope that people can see how great black fur goes with green! And how sweet and silly we can be! And how, once people figure out how having one black cat is an excellent choice, having lots of black cats will make you famous! So you should run out and adopt one or two or many of all those sleek and awesome black cats who get left behind in shelters after all the other flavors are adopted.

About Black Cat Rescue

Black Cat Rescue is a no-kill cat rescue organization in Boston, MA., and here’s what they have to say about their mission of sharing black cats with the world:

Did you know that black cats are only half as likely to get adopted as cats of other colors? Our all-volunteer network of foster homes in the Greater Boston area is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless black cats and kittens by providing quality foster care while actively seeking loving, permanent adoptive homes.

About black cats

Obviously you know “we” at The Creative Cat think black cats are pretty special, especially since “I” am outnumbered not only by cats but also by black cats. I, the human in this operation, love cats of all stripes and spots and shades, but a very special black kitty changed my life for the better at an important time, and he is the reason I began rescuing cats, which led to living with cats, which led to drawing cats and writing stories about cats and you can see where that got me.

And just as obviously, you may be reading The Creative Cat because of my special black cats—I’m well aware that the big attraction is often what they’re doing each day and not what I’m doing, and that’s fine with me. But we need to spread the word that black cats really are simply wonderful felines, there is no superstition or evil involved.

And because I believe part of the reason black cats are not adopted has more to do with the fact that they are very difficult to photograph and they don’t stand out in a crowd of cats of brighter colors and enticing patterns, I do my best every day to create the most accurate and beautiful photos of them so that viewers are enchanted with these graceful house panthers and will helplessly run out and adopt one. Sorry, not Mimi nor the Fantastic Four are up for adoption, but you’ll find one you love. Visit Black Cat Rescue on Petifinder, or your local shelter or rescue.

    Well done! Black cat fame is the most desired lol. Austin is starting to feel that being a tuxie is a bit infra dig! 😉

      Dorothy, if everyone adopted just one they’d all have homes. I wouldn’t even mind if we all got them fixed and there were no new ones for a while.

    It’s the same for black dogs, they are the last to be adopted. I adopted my black dog 9 years ago. He is the BEST!

      You’re right, Pam, and I hear it’s the same for rabbits. I think it has nothing to do with superstition and everything to do with bad lighting! I’m so glad your black dog has been with you for nine years–I know how it feels when “BEST” is in all caps.

    Angus and Donal (brothers of Lucy from one of Mimi’s earlier litters) are proudly carrying on the black cat tradition in our household. Before that we’d been owned by Genghis who’d been properly trained in the black cat arts by Kublai, himself.

      Aunt Amby, it’s so good to hear from you and our cousins! We do come from a long line of noble house panthers.

      Caitlin, they are a constant inspiration, as I’m sure your kitty is. If you’re ever so inclined, please send a link so we can enjoy your art.
