Did you know that black cats have the lowest adoption rate and the highest euthanasia rate? Why? Maybe it's superstition. Some people say they can't see or make a connection with a black cat in a poorly lit kennel. And ebony felines don't always show up in photographs as well as those with brighter coloring. For whatever reason, black cats are statistically less likely to be adopted.

It is true that Lost Our Home black cats often take longer to find homes, and that they take up much-needed foster space during this time. But black cats need love and a safe home,

so all black cat adoptions are now half off from through the end of August.

Speaking of black cats, the mascot for all black cats at Lost Our Home is Pryor, an 18-month-old, male cat rescued from an abandoned home. He is very silky, healthy and very loving to humans and other cats. Pryor is neutered, tested negative for FELV/FIV, current on shots and is microchipped.

If interested in Pryor or any other Lost Our Home black cats, contact Florine at (480) 897-1865 or call (480) 540-9322 or email lohkoe@gmail.com to arrange a meet and greet at the Tempe PetSmart at Elliot Road and Priest Drive. View other adoptable cats and dogs at www.lostourhome.org.
