Tiny – Female Black Long Haired
CONGRATULATIONS TO TINY!! 🙂
Caught in a backyard, Tiny is an 11-week-old kitten needing immediate adoption to a loving home. She has long hair, a black coat and golden eyes. She was found with her brother Tiger.
Spay/neuter surgery will be provided for each cat soon, once they are of age and weight for surgeries. Both kittens have tested negative for FIV/FELV and have been dewormed.
They have also been fed a high quality diet of Blue Wilderness grain-free kitten food.
This sweetheart almost died in the extreme heat, but is now thriving with loving attention.

A 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).
In 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.
- 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:
- 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.
