Cats Protection’s Eastbourne Adoption Centre is holding its annual National Black Cat Day on October 31 to encourage people to find a place in their hearts and homes for an unwanted black or black-and-white moggy.

Around half the charity’s cats are black or black and white and, on average, each of these cats waits around a week longer than other moggies to be rehomed.

To get involved with the many other activities and celebrations of black and black-and-white cats,Cats Protection is asking cat lovers to visit Eastbourne Adoption Centre’s social media sites at: Cats Protection Eastbourne Adoption Centre on Facebook or Eastbourne CP on Twitter.

To find out more or to adopt a cat, visit or call 440101.
