The Cutest Kittens Are Black

If you love cats, sharing makes us purrrr :-)

During Black Cat Awareness Month, the cutest, most adorable and adoptable kittens are black. You might not agree but I hope one day more cat lovers will come over the the “dark side”. Who knows, maybe one of kittens featured below will become Instagram famous. In any case, they are all lucky.

I’m so happy to see soft cones for post-spay recovery like this one. Most of the cats featured today are being fostered and up for adoption now or soon. Neo-natal fostering is often difficult, heart-breaking but desperately needed and so rewarding. To Foster (video) check with your local shelter of rescue group. Kittens are more plentiful in spring but the need for fostering is year round.

Hello, WORLD! This is Mabel. All kittens have blue eyes and adult black cats have a range of green to gold eyes.

Paws crossed for little Voodoo who is at the vet.

It’s a toss up for the latest Instagram account for a black kitten. I found two launched in the past week. This cutie is Storm. It’s lovely to watch these accounts blossom as they chronicle every stage of kittenhood to adulthood.

Some of my favorite black kittens are here for the price of a Latte. Take a peek!

While the vast majority of kitten foster folk are women, it’s always heartening to know some are men.


Talk about LUCK or destiny. This kitty was found in a bush behind a Halloween store a few days ago. He now has a home, Instagram account and fancy pants name, Guassamire the Grave. I love how black cat accounts have tripled since I launched @Blackcatsofig

The easiest time to introduce cats to dogs is in kittenhood like Drax with his big fursib, Rosie the Great Dane.


The snuggle is real. I confess to preferring older kittens like Koda.

The best time to leash train cats is early like Neo, the latest Adventure cat on Instagram. Look at that confident tail. It’s going to grow into a gorgeous bushy wonder.

It’s all treats and well maybe some tricks when you are owned by a black cat.

It’s not an accident that I chose a cute black kitten for the cover of my book.

Happy long weekend if you are celebrating Columbus Day, Indigenous People’s Day or the Canadian Thanksgiving.

xo, Layla, Odin, Nou Nou and our black cat angel, Clyde.

    Alas all of the pics except the last one say view on instagram which I cannot do!
    You know how I feel about the Black kitties.
    BTW I lost my oldest girl Blackie (black of course) a few weeks back, as best we can calculate she had to be around 21 or 22. I also had some one bring me a wee black baby at the same time but he had been severely injured most likely by a bird of prey and could not be saved. The two are buried together heart to heart. It just seemed right to do it that way, a guardian for the wee one and a baby for the old one. We have suffered so many losses again this year.
    On a up note we have a new member of the tribe named Jagger, Black and white and looks like he/she (not sure of gender yet) has large black lips that made us immediately think of Mick Jagger LOL. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away…………….He seems to know what is needed so I try not to question.
    Luvs and Happy Black Cat Awareness Everything.

      Ha, I know you’d be a tad biased. Gingers are probably the quickest to be adopted. All the more reason I promote black πŸˆβ€β¬›πŸ˜Ή
