Did you know that black cats are less likely to get adopted? According to myths, black cats are often associated with spooky things like Halloween and witches and bad luck.

However, thanks to Marvel’s Black Panther movie’s success, there was an adoption rise for black cats in that period and many of them were named after the characters like, T’challa, Okoye, Shuri and even a Killmonger!

Due to long exposure to the sun, their fur might become lighter just like how our hair gets lighter when we are in the pool for too long. No to worry as they will regain their shiny black fur as they shed their old one.

They also can be more prone to sunburn, especially if they have short or thin fur. It's essential to protect them from prolonged sun exposure, particularly in sunny or hot climates, to prevent sunburn.

Black cats almost always have yellow eyes. There are some with green eyes or those with gold or copper, like the bombay cats. Do note that all kittens have blue eyes when they are around 4-8 weeks old and change when they are around 3-4 months old!
