I just read the silliest thing on Facebook. An article in the Birmingham Mail says that now Facebook is responsible for black cats not getting adopted. As if they didn’t already have enough problems! The article goes on to say, “Black cats are said to photograph poorly for Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and the like, with more colourful felines pre-furred. Owners just don’t like snapping selfies with them.”
Really? I think this was just a publicity ploy for Cats Protection Birmingham (and I’m all for whatever it takes to get a kitty adopted) but mom took it as a challenge. Since we have little Beyonce, the foster kitten, here with us, mom decided she should learn at an early age how to take a selfie.
Well, let me tell you, Beyonce had other ideas! She was not the least bit interested in learning to use the camera and take a selfie. All she wanted to do was play with her mousies! She finally gave it two tries and said, “NO MORE! Give me that mousie!” I think if she had put a little more effort into it, she could have had a darn good one. I mean, look at those green eyes!
As you may have seen on my Facebook page, I have been practicing my selfies. I’m starting to get the hang of it. Here’s one I took the other day. It’s far from perfect so I’ll keep working on it.

Black cats are beautiful I meow. My mom had a black cat for about 18 years…Coco. I saw a picture and she had the most golden eyes. There are website with tips on how to take better pics of black cats, but beyonce’s whole face shows well and not just her purrty green eyes. Good job! =^,,^=
That is a great selfie! Beyonce does have fantastic eyes! Mom says BJ (Black Jack) her Panfur who came before was beautiful and she loved to photograph him 🙂

We think both these selfies are totally pawsome! Black cats are hard to photograph as a rule, but that article is just hogwash! Thank you so much for joining our Blog Hop today and for purrmoting it on your blog. We are so tickled that so many have decided to pawticipate.

I’m a black cat and I agree that photos can be a challenge, but since kitties are not vain (that’s a human thing) we know we all look great regardless of the color of our fur or whether or not we’re photogenic.
I think both your selfies look great. Beyonce looks a little surprised at herself and you look very relaxed.
I think your selfies are great and I LOVE the name Beyonce for your kitty! Have a great day!
