A Guide To The Black Cat Selfie

Welcome to my guide to the black cat selfie. Christine Bayka founder of animal shelter The Moggery, reports that black kittens and cats are being passed over time and time again because (wait for it), apparently they don’t take a good selfie.

I take umbrage to the whole concept of black cats equating to bad photos, and reveal why in fact, the black cat is the most superior selfie partaker of them all. Evidence of the black cat selfie, if you will:

Black cats are normally the most chilled moggy you can find. They like to have fun.

They’re helpful around the house, excelling at most chores.

After a long hard day, they’ll even cook you dinner.

Then run you a lovely bubble bath.

They have an eye for the outdoors, but equally, are excellent at indoor horticulture. (You think this lemon tree would still be alive if it wasn’t for Reg?)

They’ll never shirk DIY responsibilities around the house (unlike the husband).

They have varied interests, and take part in an assortment of extra curricular activities. Rugby, for one.

Tree climbing, for another – naturally.

They have a penchant for entertaining – enjoying a whole host of great music.

They’ll make the best Halloween selfie accessory you’ll ever get.

And when it comes to the most wonderful time of the year – WHO SAYS Father Christmas isn’t real?

In fact, these guys love all manner of weathers, what better way to spend a snow day than building a snowman?

They scrub up well and are always on time and on form to mark even the most momentous of occasions in their LBD and black tux.

They make the most brilliant garden party guests.

When you’ve just given birth and you come home a tad shell shocked and wonder if the cats will get on with the baby? Not a problem.

They’ll insist on testing out the pram for the new arrival – just to make sure it’s completely suitable.

In fact – if you need a baby sitter while you nip to the toilet…

Or at the end of the day, when the rest of the family are in bed and you just want a cuddle…

They’ll always take a little time out to spend together – but that’s OK, they deserve it.

Taking selfies with black cats since about 1987.

I’m here to tell you that a bad workman always blames his tools. Yep. For those of you that haven’t quite got it yet – there’s one simple rule (besides keeping your camera lens clean) – face the frigging light, people! Don’t blame the black cat, you have no idea what you’re missing out on.

In tribute to my beautiful boy Reggie, who sadly passed away on 1st June 2019, and to my childhood beloved first cat, Pip.
