Celebrate National Black Cat Day by Adopting Black Cats and Kittens!

Friday, November 17th is National Black Cat Day! This makes this week the perfect time to adopt black cats or kittens. Luckily we have plenty of black kitties available for at Adopt & Shop. We think they’re unbelievably beautiful and super cute!

Did you know that some cultures believe black cats are good luck? That’s right, in some places these cool cats are a sign of prosperity. Some Scots think that a strange black cat arriving on your doorstep bodes good fortune. Black cats are considered good luck in other parts of Britain and Japan too. Some even think women who own black cats will have many suitors! Sailors sought out these kitties as “ship’s cats” for good luck at sea. And Egyptian households thought having a black cat would grant them favor from Bastet, the cat goddess.

So what are you waiting for? Adopt one (or two!) of these babies today. We have a wide variety of adorable cats and kittens in every size and color, including solid-black, tortoise, calico and black and white. Just stop by Adopt & Shop Culver City or Adopt & Shop Lakewood, choose your new best friend and order them an awesome ID tag designed by us!

All of the cats listed below are at our Culver City location except for Elvira, Frankenstein, Grape and Olive – they’re in Lakewood.

Solid Black

Solid black cats look so elegant, don’t you think? They may not have the permanent tuxedo of a black and white cat, but their jet-black fur is simply stunning. They even look like tiny black panthers. These kitties have fur that ranges from bluish black to a brownish black.

Black and White

These are the cats that are always ready for a black-tie event. Check out these great kitties that always wear their Sunday best no matter where they go. And many of these cats and kittens have little white paws. They look like tiny white socks! D’aww!

Is a patterned black cat more your style? It seems that no two tortoise cats are alike. They are truly unique – just like you!

  • Grape


Calico cats are also truly one of a kind. These black, orange and white beauties are a patchwork of fur. You can find little Crystal in Culver City. Pay her a visit and we’re sure you’ll fall in love.

  • Crystal

Come by either of our stores and check out these feline friends in person! We’ll arrange a playdate for the both of you so you find the perfect personality match. Whether you want a sleepy sourpuss or a wide-awake wonder, you’ll find the right cat for your household. All of our pets come fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered. While you’re at the store, you can buy all you need to make your cat feel more at home. We have collars, beds, toys, treats and more so stop on by!
