Black Cat Appreciation Day

August 17 is Black Cat Appreciation Day.  For some totally inexplicable reason, some of you humans do not like black cats.  Even less understandable is that black cats are the least likely to be adopted.

So to celebrate, I will try to educate those of you with misconceptions about black cats.  For a more scientific explanation on "melanistic" cats see this  National Geographic article .  Wikipedia explains how black cats result from a recessive gene and why you humans misunderstand my fellow black brethren.

And of course, what would be a posting about cats be without one or many videos ?

Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day !!
