Black Cats Aren't Getting Adopted Because They Look Bad in Selfies [View all]

https://www.wideopenpets.com/black-cats-getting-passed-look-bad-selfies/


A shelter in England has gotten some pretty ridiculous feedback.
When asking adopters if they were flexible with the color cat they were interested in, the cat rehoming shelter The Moggery in Bristol, England would get the answer "yes, as long as it's not black."

While black cats have always had trouble getting adopted from shelters due to their unfair association with bad luck, the shelter says it's worse now more than ever. Founder of The Moggery told Unilad.

It's worse now because black cats don't show up in selfies. Now everybody wants to take selfies and put them on Facebook. It's a very narcissistic use of social media.

The Moggery has near 40 black cats that need to go to good homes.
