Statistically, black cats are much less likely to be adopted than cats of other colors.  According to a new study in LiveScience and out of the University of California, Berkeley, it's NOT just because we think black cats are unlucky!

No . . . people avoid adopting black cats because we think they HATE US.  The researchers found people think black cats are more aloof than other cats, so they don't give off that "loving" vibe . . . and people are less likely to adopt them.
