Maybe it is me but I do not see a photo?

Chico has some lovely photos of her black cat (also named Chico) and I used to take pix of my black cat - when I was a child. (a much loved cat who lived a long 22 yys!) but any errors were mine alone - I am still not the best photographer, lol

They are tough to catch, I have deleted many duds of Harley and Huxley. Here's a good shot of them.

Oh - DMC123 - your kitties are gorgeous! It always catches me by surprise when I see a black cat with a tail! Shadow is a rumpy ManxX and my last cat was too - so tails on cats are foreign to me :)

You are right about black cats being hard to photograph! We've taken hundreds of duds. But here is one I managed to get a few days ago. (too bad you can't see their cute faces!) Sunny actually let Salem on his window shelf.....but not exactly on the shelf -- luckily Salem is small enough to fit on the window ledge. Oh well, it's a step in the right direction!

Thanks JanM, my girls' tails are almost as big as their bodies! lol Their older brother Cody, is part manx, no tail at all, so they still surprise me at times, too!

JanM,thank's,both pics are of my Chico,I only have one black kitty:)
Badger,those are a couple of the few that are quiet good,you really have to watch the lighting and background for a good pic,often he turns out looking dusty:laughing:
Love Bird:lovestruck: is he becoming a permanent resident,number???
A couple more of Chico,he loves playing with snowflakes,or raindrops:cat:

So many pretty black cats! :cloud9: My first "my" pet (other than goldfish, lol!) was my little black cat Pepper. I'm on the wrong computer to post any pics (if I've managed to scan any in :o ).

Maxine, those are great pics, especially the cuddly pic. :lovestruck: If you think you need to do better, I can't wait to see pics that meet your approval! ;) :laughing:

The more pics, the better! :D

It's hard to me to remember that my bro's cats were all semi-feral kittens and that Dexter came back to my bro just over a year ago and was untouchable and forever hiding (the man that had him had to call my brother anytime Dexter needed anything done to him because only my brother could touch the cat at all, so it was just better for Dex to rejoin his siblings/cousins/however they are related colony mates). :laughing: He's over that now!

Hi - I was going to post these on there own, but remebered there was a 'black cat' thread going -- such beautiful cats :cloud9: -- So, I thought I'd add our little Salem here!

Such a serious little guy -- he's going to get that evil stick!!!

Here is a picture my daughter took that shows how cute he is!

He's just a little doll! :lovestruck:

We'll add some of Sunny soon! I'll get my daughter to take some of him -- she seems to be much better at taking pictures of these little guys than I am!

I took a photo of 7 black cats at once a while ago. There were more, actually, but they were a bit restless, like any black cat, and didn't want to stay all in the picture.

My Chico also has a whiteish heart on his tummy:cat:
