Black cats

Spooky or Spectacular?

Its spooky season and orange is most definitely not the new black around here as we celebrate black cats at Mount Noddy. Black cats have a hard time with being viewed as symbols of bad luck in folklore, but did you know that in the early 19th century sailors believed them to be symbols of good luck and that they could protect ships from dangerous weather. So, if you’re not a fan of rain, maybe a black cat could be the one for you, and even if the myth is not true, what’s better than cuddling up with a feline companion away from a storm.

Statistically black cats wait longer in rehoming centres for their forever homes than other coloured cats. Although we love working with black cats due to their outstanding personalities, we would love to help change this statistic and show that black cats are the best choice. Some say that black cats are unphotogenic, one of our cats at the centre has volunteered to show off her modelling skills to prove this theory wrong, and doesn’t she look purrfect! 

If by now you’re not already convinced that black cats are the best, here are a few extra bonuses of black cats to bring you over to the dark side. Firstly, they are magical cats as at night they have the power of invisibility, you won’t get this skill with a ginger kitty. Secondly, they are snuggly and love to cuddle up and keep you toasty on cold nights.  Thirdly, black goes with every colour, so if you’re into your fashion no need to worry as a black cat will always match you.

What’s better than one black cat? TWO! Kittens at Mount Noddy love to be rehomed in pairs as it means they always have a buddy to play and grow with. So, if you’re thinking about adopting a black kitten from us, consider the benefits of a pair.
