The Black Cat Project started with a kitten named Imogen.
Casey Christopher adopted Imogen from the West Los Angeles animal shelter last December. She fell so in love that she decided to volunteer regularly at the shelter, too.
Then she noticed something sad: Black cats weren’t getting adopted as frequently as other cats. There’s actual research about this. 13% of Americans think black cats are bad luck and 26% said color matters when deciding which cat to adopt.
So since she’s also a photographer, Casey started taking photos of these adorable black balls of kitten fluff.
“With this photo series, I tried to showcase their personalities to counter the belief that black cats are bad luck,” she said.
