    I knew that there were superstitions, but I didn't take it too seriously and didn't realize how deep some people go. is this the only reason?

    I hear that they're often left in shelters and the least adopted cats. Why is this?

    Some people hate black cats because of the silly superstitions about them being bad luck, cursed etc and then even worse than that, some people simple don't adopt black cats because (and I'm not joking here) they aren't good for selfies! That is the most stupid reason of them all but sadly, its quite common these days.

    Its heartbreaking that people will abandon animals and pass them by in shelters just because of how they look and then because of silly superstitions. The next cats I'll be adopting will be black and I even have their names chosen already I'll be looking to adopt more less adoptable cats such as older cats, black cats, disabled cats etc.
