  2. Black is Slimming: These black beauties will always look great in selfies #blackcat

Unfortunately, the black cat often has a difficult time getting adopted at shelters and rescues due to the stigma associated with her coat. One need only consult the black cat's ever-telling crystal ball, a.k.a. the Internet, for proof of the beauty and love expressed by and toward black cats. This regal lots, with their silky black coats and large amber to green-colored eyes, deserve just as much love as all other cats.
