Evidently black-furred animals have a lower rate of adoption as pets. Who knew?
And the Austin NAACP has lashed out against Williamson County's "Black is Beautiful" campaign to adopt the darker-furred critters.
Some folks need better things to worry about.
Personally, I think the reason for not adopting black kitties is that so many may qualify for this site. And I know we have had two of those in our neighborhood.
For the record, The Monk's handicapped black kitty (he has scoliosis) is the most spoiled furball in the house (we have three . . . or four if you include me). He's also the sweetest. So go adopt a black kitty or one with that really cool charcoal gray color.
