Here at Cats Protection, we believe that black is beautiful, and so we’ve created a collection of handy colour charts to help you identify your own black cat’s true hue. Are they a Sirius Black, a Thunder Grey or even a Posh Penguin? Take a look at our fifty shades of black cat to find out!
We’re also taking this opportunity to showcase some of the black cats waiting in our branches and centres for new loving homes. If you need convincing that a mini panther would make a wonderful addition to your life, have a read of this wonderful story of how a beautiful black cat called Melissa has changed her owner’s life for the better…
Rachael Elliott and her partner Nick adopted eight-year-old moggy Melissa from Cats Protection’s Croydon Branch in April 2018 and she has already become the centre of their home.

“Not only is she the sweetest girl, she takes a wonderful photo too – contrary to some media articles I've read about black cats being 'unphotogenic' (as if!).”

“Since adopting Melissa, Vanda and I have become good friends,” said Rachael. “We often meet in the local Croydon area for breakfast and really enjoy each other’s company! What's more, Melissa loves Vanda. It's a true pleasure for us both to get together and spoil Melissa with strokes and attention.
