Thousands of cat enthusiasts have come together on Facebook for a special Black Cat Appreciation Day.
The organizer wrote
"Black Cats are frequently the last to be adopted and are often put to sleep. I came up with this idea in the hope that opinions could be changed and the Black Cat would be a welcome addition in everyone's home! Black cats are playful, loving, and sometimes even remind you of miniature panthers with their shiny black coats! Save a life and get a wonderful friend...adopt a black cat!!"
Here's our very own Cleo, trying to nap in where else... a cardboard box.
