I love meeting the many black cats at the sanctuary and count among them some of my closest cat buddies (Colin and Shady to name just a couple), but that doesn’t stop it from being a bit of a struggle to get 100% positive ID’s on a lot of them, particularly just from a photo.
Here are a few photos from over the past few years of black cats I’ve admired but either hadn’t met properly or couldn’t confidently match with a name at the time, and so never got to include in blog posts. I offer them here as a mini photo essay in celebration of our black cats.
(And of course if anyone’s confident about a name or two, please write it in a comment. There are 12 photos; you can refer to them by number and I’ll fill in any names as they come in.)
