    I believe it comes from black cats in America having much lower adoption rates, as people associate them with bad luck. It was dreamed up to help them find homes, because many of them were being put to sleep. So not to be cat racist! Quite the opposite, in fact.

    Thanks for that info

    But once you mention America I know there's no common sense response (wonders who started the conspiracy theory about black cats)

    Seems like we've taken it on, on a different day:

    cats.org.uk/bla…ats

    daysoftheyear.com/day…ay/

    Though I can't be 100% which came first.

    Don't worry Phil, when you come up with #WFM I think you've already lost your common sense somewhere X)

    Wikipedia says it's Germany's fault they are thought of as bad luck:

    en.wikipedia.org/wik…cat

    Also there as some connections to black cats, bad luck, pirates and pilgrims. Pilgrims probably being where America comes in. But how much do you want to hear?

    Funny really, because sailors though cats on ships were good luck:

    I refuse to answer that on the grounds of diminished responsibility

    But if you can prove where I stated I had any common sense I'll gladly retract the former statement

    Ridiculous argument .. I maintain the moral high ground if I don't eat meat ?? . The fact that cats kill things for entertainment . Maybe I should ask the local slaughterhouse if I can come and torment a couple of cows before they die .

    You don't have to torment the 900 million plus birds reared each year for your enjoyment, they already have a miserable existence for you.

    Sweeping generalisation at what my ethics are about food and what I eat to justify cats killing 275 million other creatures , and not for food , for fun. Added to the disgusting fouling of people's gardens , where children play , spreading alsorts of diseases . And impacting on millions of people's generosity in feeding the birds in harsh winters , only to see them stalked , attacked and left to endure a lingering death when the cat is bored of it .
    After all " it's all about you " .. Numpty.

    What's ridiculous is that you can't recognise that cats don't have morals, no animal does. But there you are competing with them.

    Arrogant cat owners . Dog owners can fined £1000 for their dogs mess ... Lazy cat owners just kick their fleabag out the door to hopefully(not) avoid the traffic , kill wildlife and spread disease by fouling other people's property. Shame on you.

    ​Dear me. My heart bleeds for you having to share the planet with our feline companions. Unfortunately i have to share the planet with scum that enjoy torturing innocent animals for fun (you're giving signals that you don't object to this...). And you have the audacity to call cats heartless killers?

    And yet a policewoman's dog eats a little baby and severely injures his brother and faces no fine or prosecution and you're here crying about cats?

    Besides, get a grip, man is the biggest killer of wildlife. Do you drive? Eat meat? Shame on you.

    Interesting to see the ridiculous comparisons used to justify lazy cat ownership. I presume you are over the moon when your cat drags in a half eaten still alive blackbird , after all it's a present , and are totally unconcerned that your pet uses someone else's property as a toilet . .. The mind boggles . If next doors dog used your garden you would be the first to complain and the owner would get prosecuted .. No such problems for you lot eh ?

    I would like to share the planet with wildlife also .. But next doors 3 cats have killed it all

    Ok here's the deal . I moved into a house and set aside the back part of the garden for wildlife . Bird feeding stations , a small pond and wild area for hedgehogs , butterflies etc . Very successful over 30 species of birds , frogs toads and even newts .
    A year later next door moved in with 3 cats . After finding numerous dead birds and even frogs , I had to stop feeding the birds , as luring them to almost certain death didn't really feel that good . Seeing the cats sitting on the fence and trying to catch anything that ventured by was not entertaining in any shape or form . Now there is more wild life in a tesco car park than my garden , which has also turned into a cat toilet .
    So yes selfish cat owners have impacted my life for the worse . Any advice from the cat loving elite on here ?

    You could get a cat, chances are that he'll end up with your garden as his territory so you'll be on your way to a happier life. I'm unsure how the unfortunate cat would fare though.
