Cornwall's Unlucky Black Cats
8:01am 3rd August 2014
It is claimed more and more black cats are being abandoned in Cornwall.
It is apparently because they don't look good in selfies.
The RSPCA says that is one of the reasons so many are coming through the door.
Other examples include someone who said "all you can see is the eyes and it'll frighten my daughter'.
Toni runs the Duchy HQ at St Columb, she said: "Over 50 percent of our cats are black or black and white, I think it's just people think they are bad luck still, they don't take such good photos so you don't get such a good idea of what they look like on the website, but we really need some black cats to be rehomed.
"I think people have always thought black cats are a bit unlucky, being associated with witches and witchcraft, people don't like black cats walking in front of them do they as they think it's unlucky, but I think in the old days black cats were actually good luck so we are hoping that can come around again."8:01am 3rd August 2014
