Black Cats in Need of a Home

October is National Black Cat Month and we are celebrating our beautiful black moggies: Harry, Shadow and Tina.

This month is about raising awareness of these stunning and glossy creatures, however there are many unwanted black cats which have to wait longer to be adopted due to the colour of their fur.

There are many superstitions associated with black cats which stops some people from adopting them. Fear of a black cat crossing your path started in Europe in the Middle Ages, however in ancient Egypt, all cats, including black ones, were held in high esteem and protected by law from injury and death.

In England, black cats do not bring bad luck, but instead they are meant to bring us good
luck. There are many tales such as, if a black cat is seen in the audience on an opening night of a play then the show will be a success. Also, a black cat as a wedding present is thought to bring good luck too.

Myra Grove, Cattery Manager for Bluebell Ridge said: So many times our black cats have been overlooked purely because of their colour, its frustrating because it shouldn't be about what a cat looks like. What really matters is the chemistry it has with the owner. All cats deserve the chance of a better life.

Harry (Top) is a black and white short haired male. He is 5 years old and is the longest resident at Bluebell Ridge. He is very confident, inquisitive and can be on the chatty side. So he is a great all rounder to have in a home. He likes a fuss but also likes his own independence to explore. He would suit an older family and would need to be the only cat of the household.

Shadow (Middle) is a black and white long haired female. She is only 18 months old and has a heart of gold. She is a shy girl to begin with but once she is settled, she loves a fuss and loves to be groomed. She has a quiet gentle nature and is looking for a new home to call her own. She could possibly live with another cat.

Tina (Bottom) is a black short haired female. She is only 1 year old and is a very beautiful little cat. Tina can be quite shy to begin with but soon settles and becomes an affectionate and sweet natured girl. She is a quiet cat who loves a fuss and a groom and would make a loving companion to a quiet home.

If you would like to give a home to one of our cats then please contact us.

Black DSH female, 7 1/2 years old.Sasha is a beauty with a sensitive nature. Although she finds new situations a bit daunting, she soon settles down to become a loving and affectionate little lady. She is looking for a fresh start with a nurturing owner or older family. In return, she will be a faithful friend and a joy to have in your home.
Black DSH female, 8 years old. Bella is a poppet through and through. She is so gentle and kind natured. Although she's been a bit shy in her new surroundings, she soon comes out to have a fuss when you spend a little time talking softly to her. She is very affectionate and people oriented, going all soppy when she's given attention. Bella is looking forward to being part of a new family in a loving and nurturing home. She's a lovely little person to have as a companion, and could possibly settle well with primary age children and older.
Black and white DLH male, 8 years old.Mufasa is a gentle placid cat who loves attention. He is a cat who loves home comforts and can be found snuggled in his bed. He now deserves a forever home where he is loved. Mufasa will need regular grooming to keep his coat in good condition.
