CAT lovers have a lot to celebrate this Black Cat Day (October 27) with Cats Protection’s news that black and black-and-white cats are no longer overlooked as they once were.

Since we created the awareness day in 2010 to highlight that black cats took longer to rehome than other cats, they now spend 11 days less on average in care than before, prior to moving to their new loving homes. 

Around 65,000 black or black-and-white cats have been homed through our adoption centres in the past decade. We would like to thank readers for helping us make a real difference.
