Folks say that black cats get the short shrift at shelters because our puny eyes have a hard time distinguishing their adorable features. Something about … we can’t see facial definition with all of that light-absorbing dark fur, and that makes black cats less appealing to us. We don’t know; we’re not pyschologists. But we are animal people, and we do know that shying away from black cats is utter bunk. Take Bandit for example. He’s currently our longest-term resident, having arrived in April. If Bandit were an orange tabby, he’d have been frolicking in someone’s living room months ago. Because gosh darn it, he is one of the most outgoing, engaging, affectionate cats on our adoption floor. He loves to talk, perhaps because he got so tired of people ignoring him in his dark fur that he decided to speak up and TELL them how interesting he is. We hear him saying, “So I’ve got a light-absorbing face. What about my love-absorbing heart?”
