It’s not easy being a black cat, especially during the fall, when the black cat’s dubious distinction of being a bad omen rises with the lore of Halloween.
It’s a myth that can be hard to overcome when trying to find a new home. In fact, said Katherine Juette, a volunteer with the Los Angeles-based Kitten Rescue, black cats are the most difficult ones to find adoptive families for.
But that doesn’t mean black cats are unloved. In fact, once a year, the nonprofit organization stages its “A Black Cat Affair” to connect loving families with the furry felines.
