Black cats are once again basking in the spotlight! Brickell Magazine, a high end magazine focusing on leaders, important trends and success stories for the downtown Miami area, featured a one page article on Le Chat Noir.
Under the "Entrepreneur" section, the title was "Kitty Care". The article spoke about the conception and the event called Le Chat Noir, the Cat Network's inaugural Black Cat Gala, to raise awareness about the uniqueness of black cats, reduce their euthanization rate at shelters while increasing their adoption rate.
NOTE: there was a misstatement in the article that I need to correct here. It was NOT the state of Maryland that mandated not to send black kittens. It was the shelter in Bowie that made the call. Please know the article was the draft the reporter wrote and I had corrected it but the reporter is no longer with the magazine. I had sent several emails to the reporter and editor with corrections but this was earlier in the year.
There are plenty of black cats for adoption within the Cat Network. For example, Johnny Walker and Audrey Tiffany Hepburn are a great pair.

To the future parents of JW and Tiffany, you'll receive a beautiful gift basket with essential food and toys (a $75 value for free) PLUS a bottle of Coppola wine donated by Christopher R. Coppola and Biker Cat!
Le Chat Noir was a beautiful, exciting and memorable event! More importantly it raised awareness, funding and started to overturn long-held myths about black cats and cat women. Black cats are lucky and there are plenty of sexy Cat Ladies in Miami!
Here's to saving more than 9 lives!
