Monochromatic Cats

Calamity Jane
For some reason we have an abundance of black and black and white cats and kittens. Which is just fine, because they’re all amazing cats that will make wonderful pets. But one of my goals as Cat Coordinator is to keep a variety of types and colors on the adoption floor at all times. Usually, I wouldn’t want 11 of out 13 adoptable cats and kittens to be the same color. But somehow it’s happened. We have 6 black kittens, 3 all-black cats, and 2 black and white cats.

It’s monochromatic.

Which brings a few ideas to mind.

How about we have a black tie event where everyone wears their evening dress and comes to adopt a cat that matches? It can be the formal adoption weekend. Don’t you think a cat like Bali would look great draped over your arm as you sashay about in your evening gown? 

Or what about we go Goth instead? Let’s celebrate our inner dark child, cat loving selves. Wear black lipstick and nail polish. Put on that all-black outfit you love to wear. Come adopt a cat to match your look.

Then there’s the black-cat bad-boy. Wear your biker boots and a bandana. Walk with a tough guy gait. Come get the cat to match. Embrace your inner bad child.

What do you think? Instead of disparaging over the lack of color on the adoption floor, let’s celebrate this! After all, it’s not going to happen very often. I’m going to try my darndest to keep variety for all of you color-philes out there. But for the monochromatic lovers: Come adopt yourself a beautiful, loving, wonderful black or black and white companion. There’s lots to choose from. And they’re waiting patiently to go home.

Here's a few more color-less cats you could meet this weekend!

  1. I'm happy that a lot of these kitties have found homes, but there still are some left! Black cats rock! I have one :)
