National Black Cat Day: Show these beauties some love!

It's National Black Cat Day! It is on 27 October each year and is a time to celebrate the beauty of black cats.
With four days to go until Halloween, today is a chance to celebrate an animal that sometimes gets a bad rep and needs a bit of love!
