I've been told if you own one they bring you good luck :) Maybe some truth to that! We live with (2) pure black beauties such as the one pictured here. My grandmother always told us that if you befriend/rescue a stray cat - of any color - you will ALWAYS have enough of everything you need! She referred to these feline rescues as "MONEY CATS!!"
Aw! This looks like Stanley except my monster has green eyes. Black cats are truly beautiful and such a joy to have! I hate that people are so superstitious that they hate black cats and as a result most are euthanized at shelters. It's devastating.
