Due to centuries of superstitions and completely unfounded prejudice, black cats are often associated with bad omens, not the positive fluffy feelings that are quite often associated with cute kitties. For years, shelters have been fighting this stigma in order to find black cats, who are often passed over for adoption.
Unfortunately, in this age of Millennials and also Snapchat stories, black cats are now facing a new issue. They are beginning to be overlooked by potential adopters because some believe dark fur won’t photograph well. The main reason for getting a cat should never be how many likes a cat’s picture can garner on Instagram, but even putting that aside, black cats make beautiful models.
To prove just how great these kitties look on social feeds, PEOPLE PETS found 13 black cats on Instagram that are natural beauties with major followings.
These black kitties are just – gorgeous!
