Could you offer a home to a black cat this Hallowe’en?
That’s the question being asked by Wood Green The Animals Charity.
Traditionally, the black cats brought in to the Godmanchester shelter take longer to rehome than cats of other colours.
Theories range from a belief they are less photogenic, to a fear they bring bad luck.
Wood Green cat section manager and feline behaviourist Juliette Jones said: “It can sometimes be harder to take pretty pictures of black cats depending on lighting - and the shyness of the cat - but we have plenty of camera friendly black cats in with us, like gorgeous Jasper (pictured), caught getting into the festive spirit by our volunteer photographer Nigel.
“Just like their patterned and more brightly coloured friends they make wonderful companions and certainly shouldn’t be judged because of their colour.”
To highlight what perfect pets black cats can make, staff at Wood Green will be dressing as Hallowe’en cats from today (Friday) until Sunday.
