CONGRATULATIONS TO DALLAS:  Dallas was adopted at Petco on 7-29-2013.    Dallas (2)Dallas is a squishy 2-year-old, medium-haired male cat. His beautiful coat is soft and sleek.

Dallas was rescued from a very high kill shelter before he could be put down.

He is quite the big boy. He’s very affectionate and loves to snuggle. Dallas is extremely well behaved and loves to purr.

Dallas is neutered and tested negative for FeLV/FIV. He’s received a rabies shot, microchip and vaccines.

If you’re ready to bring this cuddly fluff home to snuggle, please use the form below to contact Pammy’s 2nd Chance Rescue.

black cat is a feline with black fur. It is not a particular breed of cat and may be mixed or of a specific breed. The Bombay, known for its sleek black fur, is an example of a black cat. The all-black pigmentation is slightly more prevalent in male cats than female cats. Their high melanin pigment content causes black cats to have yellow (golden) eyes (irises).

Dallas PicIn some cultures black cats are considered good luck, and in others they are considered bad luck.

Any cat whose fur is a single color, including black, is known as a “solid” or “self”. A “solid black” cat may be coal black, grayish black, or brownish black. Most solid colored cats result from a recessive gene that suppresses the tabby pattern. Sometimes the tabby pattern is not completely suppressed; faint markings may appear in certain lights, even on a solid black cat. A cat having black fur with white roots is known as a “black smoke.”

Black cats can also “rust” in sunlight, the coat turning a lighter brownish shade.

In addition to the Bombay, The Cat Fanciers’ Association allows solid black as a color option in 21 other breeds. The color description for those breeds is:

Black: dense coal black, sound from roots to tip of fur. Free from any tinge of rust on the tips. Nose leather: black. Paw pads: black or brown.

The exceptions are:

Dallas (1)

Oriental – EBONY: dense coal black. Free from any tinge of rust on tips or smoke undercoat. Nose leather: black. Paw pads: black or brown.

Sphynx – BLACK: black. One level tone from nose to tip of tail. Nose leather: black. Paw pads: black or brown.

Ragamuffin – Although black is not specifically mentioned, the standard allows for “any color, with or without white,” so technically speaking, an all-black Ragamuffin would be allowed under the breed standard.
