If you're considering adopting a cat please give the black beauties a second glance before deciding!



Thank you. It's mostly in the USA that the black cat=unlucky superstition exists. Black cats are actually considered lucky in many cultures. We have a whole house full of black (or mostly) cats: all rescues. The main reason we have so many is that we had trouble getting them adopted due to the superstition. They are all very sweet in their way and some of them have the most luxurious coats.

Screw that! I am a straight man and I wear several of these cute cat shirts in public... especially to adoption events for the cat rescue group I work with.

ROFL... oddly enough, the original shows up in the quote. I think "Katie Kaboom", not the B word, would actually be a cool name for a cat. I'm an Animaniacs fan, so I know where the name came from.

Ugh, it took me a while to convince myself to pay $12 for this. Then when I was checking out I was hit with sales tax. I can't justify $13.20 for a shirt that I'll probably wear once.

I used to grow a patch of four-8 leaf clovers in the side-yard of our old house. Was so sad when we had to move. This shirt bring back some of the happy peacefulness I had there. Def getting this one. ^-^

This is my very first green shirt purchase!! I really dislike the color green, but I LOVE this design (and shirt). And I will finally have something to wear on St. Patrick's Day that is a true green. I bought two (one for mom). Black cats rule!

Thank you ramyb! Your kittie is absolutely purrrrr-fect!

Also, where do I sign up for this 'ramyb' army? Making people cry over insignificant, first-world problems, like what shirt they can't buy on a website, and then drinking their tears is a hobby of mine. Do we get guns or just pictures of cute animals?

EDIT: Oh, I forgot to ask - what was the title of this Derby? ... That's right! It was "Kitties!" A cute animal shirt for this derby? You're right, that's just stupid.



Mate, I think you've taken this a bit too seriously. T-shirt designs on an Amazon.com commerce site isn't anything to imagine anyone would be upset enough to "cry" over.

It's a simple expression of opinion, and if a person expressing their opinion that the majority of one artists' fare is eye-rollingly repetitive (if not lucrative for the site), then let them be. Just jog on.

Man, we have a pair of black cats, and I'm part Irish, so I'd love this shirt... but it's WAY too "cutesy" for a 6'4" married man to wear.

It just breaks my heart that people overlook black cats just because of some stupid superstition. Kitty racism isn't cool. >_>



This is sadly true, from what I understand. I have also heard that some people find it funny to adopt them around Halloween, then abandon them at the shelter shortly thereafter, but I am not sure how true that one is. Furthermore I have been told to keep an eye on black cats during that same season, as people sometimes steal or hurt them. Again, I think (or hope, at least) this is urban legend. One thing is certain -- black cats are harder to see at night, which is another reason to keep them close by, because being hit by a car is very unlucky.

I have an eleven year old black cat, but I've only owned her since June, when a colleague flippantly decided she was not willing to take care of her animals anymore and was going to take her to the pound. The 'kitty racism' is the exact reason I rescued her, as I knew it would be a death sentence for the poor thing. She is fat, sneezy (has several allergies), is declawed and has an overbite (aka vampire teeth), but she is the sweetest thing and cuddles me with fierce desperation. I'm glad I took her in.

Our daughter loves cats, but since the rest of the family is allergic to cat dander in varying degrees, she can't have one. She will demand I buy her this shirt, if she sees it. And I will comply, out of guilt.

Curse you, Woot!



FYI, there are such things as 'hypoallergenic cats' (ones that do not cause cat allergies.) I used to have a gorgeous white cat that I found in a shelter that turned out to be a Siberian -- a breed great for allergy sufferers who still want a cat. How not-allergy inducing was this cat? I had a roommate whose son had major cat allergies AND asthma, and he never had a single reaction to the cat. They also say female cats, and neutered males produce fewer allergens.

Info on the Siberian breed: http://www.catster.com/cat-breeds/Siberian

Also, hairless cats are incredibly sweet, and -- while they ARE hairless -- they are still unbelievably soft and wrinkly and fun to pet.


Get that kid a cat, pronto!

Never. Rarely if ever do I take anything serious - life is too short to live with a scowl. My words, despite their harsh appearance, are meant with a grin, a wink, and a poke. Emoticons can be seen as insincere, so I use them very sparingly, despite the difficulty of conveying emotion in this medium. I guess, in the end, I could have shortened my posts to: "If you don't like it, don't buy it, and don't waste your time complaining about it," but where's the fun in that? ;) Then again, who am I to tell people how to waste their time? If they derive enjoyment from complaining about a t-shirt... rock on, but don't be surprised when some random Pinky on the internet says something stupid in return. ;) Cheers, and take care. I really do mean that...

I'm a 5'11", sometimes-bearded man with long hair and I wear shirts like this. I've lost count of the compliments I get. Men, women, children - even old ladies at times. The man makes the clothes, friend! Stand up tall and rock this shirt.

$15 has always been the regular price. It's only discounted on the debut day.

$2 of that "extra" $3 goes to the artist, so think of it as buying the shirt for $13 (from Woot) instead.

Unfortunately this is all too true. I have seen what was left after some people's superstitious nights. You should not let your black cats out around here anytime within a week before or after Halloween. I won't let my kitty out either and he is only a tuxedo pattern.

I thought there was some saying like "black cats bring gold, white cats silver" in China or Japan. That's why I had black cats despite the whole "they're bad luck" thing. My cats were far from lucky. One fell out a window and the other got cancer. I miss those sweet boys.

Why DOES the cat look dead? Is this a some sort of ironic humor that ends with cats being allergic to clovers? The eye most definately look dead, not happy.

Not sure I want to wear a shirt with a dead or dead looking cat on it. ......ack, but it's a perf. 3/17 shirt.
