Black. The absence of visible light. The darkest color. Hue-less, and also one of the first colors ever used in Neolithic cave paintings. Definitely more than meets the eye.

Thread: Rescue Of An Itty Bitty Injured Black Kitten

Coming across an abandoned tiny and helpless kitten on the street is a heart-wrenching thing each and every time. Our hearts cannot help but go out to them, and yet, as much as we wish we could help, that's not always a possibility. Thankfully, this injured awwdorable itty bitty black kitten has lucked out, being rescued by some wonderful people. 

After not finding the kitten's mom, Covidnineteen on imgur picked the kitten up and took it home, bringing it to the vet, feeding it from a bottle, gently introducing it to the purrfect senior cat and the dog in the house. Not everyone would have undertaken such a task, so we feel like we absolutely have to say thank you. We wish this adorable rescued kitten as well as its family a long and most happy life together.

Poor guy has sores all over his foot pads. He spent the whole drive trying to feed out of my beard.'

Cats Are Not Bad Luck: Twitter's Awwdorable Black Kitties

All cats are purrfect. That is fact. No matter the color, no matter the size, no matter the age or the breed. Every single cat is absolutely purrefect. That - of course - includes black cats

Yes, they may be creatures of darkness, and sometimes their eyes scare us when they're glaring at us in the middle of the night. I also may have sat on mine one time, but it wasn't my fault, it was his own fault for sitting on the black blanket that was on my sofa. These are not disadventages though, these are reasons to get a black cat. Black cats all make life that much more entertaining. More than that, as an owner of a black cat, I can safely say that they love their humans just as hard if not harder than other cats.

Same Energy: Mini House-Panthers Vs Panthers

Hands up if you have a mini house panther! We have a deep love for black cats. Mostly because black cats tend to be misunderstood and underappreciated when it comes to the variety of different cats out there. For centuries black cats have been getting a bad rep but recently things are starting to change. We feel more people now than ever are seeing black cats in a new light, and it's so wonderful to see. 

Black cats are the least likely to be adopted from a shelter but we're here to tell you, scratch that, we're here to show you why you'd want a black cat. A cat black means you'll best friends with a mini house-panther. And who in their right mind wouldn't want a panther of their own? It's like Rajah from Disney's Aladdin, only way cooler.
