It's sad but true . . . black kitties have among the highest euthanasia numbers among other fur colors. It sounds crazy to those of us who love all cats, regardless of color, but many of these kittens end up dead due to their sheer number.

There are black felines of all shapes and sizes at your local shelter or cat rescue group just waiting for their new forever homes.

Another benefit to adopting is the impact it has on our health. A recent study conducted during the COVID pandemic has shown how it can improve humans' mental health and well-being in isolation, something many of us still go through.

According to shelter surveys, the population these days are full due to the increasing number of strays, which makes it harder for volunteers to provide help. Adopting one can save a spot for another creature who needs help.
With that said, what's stopping you further from giving a cute little rescue his or her forever home? Take up your favorite rescue shirt and adopt a sweet kitty now!
