Black Cats Are Being Abandoned Because They Don't Look Good In Selfies

(A black cat's version of giving the finger)

Black cats are lucky - but not if their owners like taking selfies, say the RSPCA.

They say the popular trend of people taking pictures of themselves with their pets is leading to a rise in unwanted black moggies and they're urging pet lovers not to judge their cats by their colour.

Officials are worried pet owners are dumping the animals simply because they don't photograph well because of their darker features.

That's why they believe a whopping 70 per cent of more than one thousand cats currently in RSPCA care at their 16 national animal centres are black.

A spokesman said: "In UK folklore, black cats symbolise good luck, yet sadly in reality they are not so lucky."
