10 Reasons Why Black Is The New Orange

BlackistheNewOrangeGraphic

Here at GreaterGood, every day is National Cat Day! We work all around the world to improve the health and welfare of our feline friends in so many ways, whether it’s via support specifically for blind cats, funding basic comforts to shelter cats, or providing medical supplies for diabetic cats.

This time of year, we also want to remind you that black cats especially need our affection and admiration. Here are ten reasons why Black is the New Orange, plus a few easy ways you can help make life better for cats right now.

1. They are often the animals most in need of adoption! Despite all the stellar reasons we’re about to cite, many people still believe black cats are evil or bring about bad luck (hard to believe, but true). They are also often more challenging to photograph than other shelter animals, simply because their darker coloring can make it difficult to capture the expressiveness in their eyes.

GreaterGood’s One Picture Saves a Life program helps fund photography workshops to help shelter workers take better pictures. Get involved.

We also have programs specifically designed to help shelter cats now through our Cats R Cool program. Watch the video to learn more, and donate.

2. In parts of England and Ireland, a black cat cross your path signifies good fortune.

3. Black cats go with every décor!
