No One Wants to Rehome Black Cats Because Theyre Bad At Selfies Screen Shot 2018 01 30 at 09.26.22zoodomkorolev/Instagram

Black cats are less likely to be adopted when compared to others but they still need forever homes.

There are various reasons why black cats struggle to be rehomed with many people still associating them with witchcraft and bad luck.

Some would also incorrectly argue that tortoiseshell, tabby and ginger cats have distinctive markings which make them more attractive.

Now a cat rehoming shelter has said the real reason black cats don’t get rehomed is because people don’t think they look good in selfies and photograph badly.

67-year-old Christine Bayka set up cat rehoming centre The Moggery in Bristol 21 years ago and says the situation is worse than ever.

For the first time all of the shelter’s 40 felines are black but no one wants to adopt them.

Christine is right – people should really be adopting a cat because they fall in love with their character and personality, not because they would be great for photos.

And as all owners of black cats will know, they are gorgeous creatures that look great in photos if you wish to take them.

Take my Holmes for example, a black kitten I adopted last year who is already a handsome boy.

Of course I am biased but you can’t argue with the fact Holmes looks beautiful in this selfie:

Sadly it is a common theme across the country with rescue centres agreeing that black cats are much less likely to be adopted.

Amy Buckle, branch manager at the Last Chance Animal Rescue Centre in New Romney, Kent, currently cares for 12 cats of which five are black.

If you want to find out more about how to rehome a cat, the RSPCA website has plenty of useful information.

Ten-year-old Jewel may seem like a happy dog now, but her past was anything but that. In 2009, she was seized from a house in northern Florida by Nassau Humane Society animal control officers.

The poor dog was in horrible shape. She was extremely skinny and malnourished, and had sores and cigarette burns all over her body. Someone had also cut her ears off with a scissor. By her appearance, and the way she cowered when people went near her, it was obvious that she had been previously abused.

She was rushed to a vet where she was diagnosed with heartworm disease and treated accordingly. Aside from trying to get healthy, she was also caring for her litter of puppies. The vet believed her former owners used her just to have multiple litters to sell.

A woman named Hayley Baer took Jewel in as a foster and eventually adopted her. Despite everything Jewel had been through, she remained in positive spirits and was extremely friendly toward people and even other animals.

Especially cats. Jewel loved cats and the cats loved her back. Baer’s cats, Lavender and Lily, whom Jewel first met, initially watched Jewel from a distance. But once they got more comfortable with having her around, they started to get closer to her. Eventually they became friends and were soon cuddling together!

Sadly, in 2012, Jewel’s cat friend duo passed away. Baer knew how much Jewel loved cats, so she decided to start fostering other kittens. Jewel welcomes in every single cat that comes into their house, and the cats surprising respond with the same warm reaction.

It’s safe to say that Jewel is a cat whisperer!

Later in 2012, Baer started fostering two street kittens who had been living under a porch. The cats, named Anderson and Cooper, also formed a strong bond with Jewel. When it was time for the kitties to go to a new home, Baer knew she had to adopt them.

All these years later, the three of them are still the best of friends! They enjoy playing together, snuggling, and are absolutely inseparable. Baer says that they are more of Jewel’s cats than they are hers.

It’s so heartwarming to see animals of different species getting along and loving each other unconditionally!

You’ve probably heard the phrase fighting like cats and dogs, right? While there’s certainly some truth in the stereotype of cats and dogs hating on each other (they do having naturally conflicting temperaments, dogs are more social and playful while cats prefer their independence), with a little bit of luck and some very careful introductions the two can and do live together in relative harmony. Because who says you have to choose between being a ‘cat person’ and a ‘dog person’ when you can have the best of both? Even so, when cats and canines do become roomies there’s always going to be some drama.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of photos of those times when our furry friends just did not get along, natural instincts took over and they fought like, well, cats and dogs. Which one is your favourite? Do you have both cats and dogs together as pets? Let us know in the comments below!

You’ve probably heard of Crop Circles but have you heard of Cat Circles?

Cats all over the world are being “trapped” by their owners with common household items such as masking tape, hula-hoops, electronic cords and many other small items placed in the form of a circle.

It all started when Reddit user Admancb posted a photo titled Trick Your Cat With a Circle. He discovered that his cat was drawn to circles. One of his power cords looped around unintentionally forming a circle on the floor. He watched his cat walk over and sit down right in the middle of it. He started wondering if it would work with other things too. So he made a circle with red masking tape and watched, as his cat seemed powerless to resist, walking over and sitting down right in the middle.

The moment of discovery! (Photo Credit: Cat Circles – Reddit – Admancb)

It is not known why cats are drawn to circles and when I say circle I use that word loosely. As you can see by the photos many of the circles are not exactly round.

Tips for Cat Circle Testing:

  • Take any object that you can shape into a circle and make a circle on the floor. Try different sized circles, your cat may like small circles or big circles.
  • Try other shapes. Cats are unique. Perhaps your cat will feel more compelled to sit in a square or triangle. Be creative.
  • If your cat is oblivious, you may want to draw your cats attention to the circle so that he or she sees that it is there. Once the cat is aware of the circle be patient, make sure you’re ready to capture the results of your test. Have your phone or camera handy to record the results of your scientific testing and wait.

Note: Felines are highly intelligent. Not every single one is going to take the bait and become trapped by their owner’s Cat Circles whim but most cats seem powerless to resist the circle.

Why are cats drawn to circles?

One possible explanation of the Cat Circles phenomenon could be instincts and their desire for warmth. Experts say when a cat sleeps in a circle they are conserving body heat. A lot of cat beds are circles. Cats could be drawn to circles because the circle subconsciously makes them think they will be warm inside the circle, drawing them in.
