Kimpton animal centre's plea to give black cats a bit of luck
THIS Halloween the local Blue Cross is urging people to spare a thought for the many unlucky black cats which are in desperate need of loving homes. Despite some myths that black cats are lucky, those at the centre in Kimpton have been less than fortunate
THIS Halloween the local Blue Cross is urging people to spare a thought for the many unlucky black cats which are in desperate need of loving homes.
Despite some myths that black cats are lucky, those at the centre in Kimpton have been less than fortunate and their numbers far outweigh any cats of other colours.
Just one of those is kitten Ice (pictured below) who was born at the centre after her pregnant mother was bought into the centre as the owner could no longer keep her.
Centre manager Lynda Campbell said: "We don't know why some people don't want to adopt a black cat, perhaps they are superstitious about it and think they are unlucky.
You may also want to watch:
"We're urging people who are thinking of adopting a cat to take a closer look at the black cats we are caring for - they really are just as affectionate and loving as the brighter coloured pets."
For more information about re-homing Ice or his siblings, or any other cat, dog, rabbit or guinea pig in their care, contact 01438 832232.
