We have a black kitten and she's so sweet, loving, funny, easy-going, playful, friendly... she's just the greatest cat. She's very expressive, but anonymous is right about not photographing well -- it is so hard to capture her cuteness on camera (we do better in natural light at least). My sister's black cat was probably the other sweetest cat I've ever known.
I have a flat-coat retriever. He's all black and has the most expressive eyes ever. He's an absolute sweetheart and I am lucky to have him!!!
I've also read that black dogs and cats take longer to adopt because they don't photograph well, so they get sometimes get overlooked on shelter websites. We have a black dog who's the absolute ray of sunshine in our house and I can't imagine life without her there. But it is hard to get a good photo of her. You almost have to have her outside, in the sunshine, with all of the auto settings shut off and then pray she holds still for five seconds!
lol i have a black cat AND a pitbull...my home must be scary!!!
I love my black lab, although she can be kind of hard to find in the dark!
I have one black kitty and a black and white kitty.... Have also had a black lab and a black (with a few white spots) great dane. Hmmm... I'm noticing a pattern!
I have a black kitty and I LOVE him. Wouldn't trade him for the world.
And I have a black pit bull with the most expressive face...
I think this has to do with ability to read the "expressions" on black colored animals. They definitely do take longer to find homes.
