                                                          Protection designated this holiday to celebrate the
                                                          virtues of black cats (often called a “sab cat” or “sabo-
                                                          tabby”).  In America, Black Cat Appreciation Day is
                                                          August 17 .  Cats Protection’s research shows that it is
                                                          much harder to find new homes for abandoned black cats
                                                          than for any other color of cat.  The reason most often
                                                          given is that black cats are un-photogenic, but the true
                                                          root of the problem goes much deeper.  Black cats are
                                                          bad luck!
