Celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day: Here are 7 reasons why black cats rule

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day! Here are seven reasons why black cats rule:

1. Black cats look sleek and sophisticated.
2. They match any décor.
3. Holding a black cat is very slimming!
4. Black cats are great at hiding in the dark.
5. A lint brush isn't required for a black-tie affair.
6. Black cats are easy to name.
7. Some house panthers are even famous, like @sophie_themodel and @coleandmarmalade.

Unfortunately, black cats are less likely to be adopted but they have so much love to share. So visit your local shelter and adopt a black cat!
