|I tend to look evil in pictures, but I promise I'm a sweetheart.|
Unfortunately, not all black cats get such a cushy life. Black cats get a bad rap. They are seen as "unlucky" and "evil." All of this is totally false, of course but they still have a hard time getting adopted from shelters according to the ASPCA. This is terribly sad, and something I did not know when I went looking to adopt my cat, who turned out to by the aptly named, Onyx. In fact, when the Husband saw Onyx in the cat enclosure when we visited Manhattan's ASPCA shelter, I thought I'd have to jump through more hoops to adopt a black cat, thinking shelters saw too many prospective adopters looking for back cats for nefarious purposes. Turns out I was not wrong about black cats and some bad adoptions.

Now, my regal Onyx is one of my muses and just a great cat. My Black Cat crosses my path everyday and never causes any bad luck.
