In 2015, 45% of cats taken in by Cats Protection were either black or black and white. Yet it takes on average 22% longer for these cats to find a loving home compared to cats of other colours.

Whether this bias is historical or based on superstition, Ely and District Cats Protection are keen to stress that black and black and white cats have just as much love to give and make equally good companions as cats of other colours.

One such cat who is currently in the branch's care is Tulio (pictured), a 2 year old black male. Tulio is a friendly boy who is good with children and other cats. He is looking for a home outside of Ely City.

If you are able to give a cat a home, please contact the branch on 01353 699430 or visit www.ely.cats.org.uk.
