|Mo and Farah on the podium|
Mo and Farah are a classic case in point. They have the most endearing personalities yet people aren't seeing beyond their colour. The second time I saw them in their foster them one of the boys was bouncing around, being incredibly entertaining, whilst the other one just climbed up onto my lap for attention, purred away and feel fast asleep. This level confidence and sociability with strangers is not commonplace and even more remarkable considering they were found dumped in a box.
We have many more black kittens, not old enough to be rehomed yet, who will most likely endure the same extended wait for new homes. I'm hopeful this bank holiday weekend will find people browsing the internet looking for new furry friends and will consider and a noir variety. In the meantime here are a selection of beautiful, black cats.
|Bob was abandoned in a box|
|Earl is an older chap whose elderly owner passed away|
|Emma was forced to live outdoors by her owner as a tiny kitten|
|Gary is a highly entertaining chap. He was dumped outside a vets.|
|Gonzo was found on a dual carriageway. We suspect he was abandoned.|
|Pepper came in with his siblings and mum. His owner was over-run with animals and unable to look after herself.|
|Pepsi, mum of Pepper, has come such a long way. Initially frightened and shy she now loves rolling on her back whilst you tickle her tummy and has found her playful side!|
|Vic was abandoned in a box with Bob. He has a special 'boggle eye'.|
