@yellowflower - Thanks! Awww that's too bad you're allergic Coincidentally though, I remember reading that black cats contain the least amount of allergens so they're frequently adopted by people with allergies...(I'd imagine maybe the short-haired ones?) I don't know if that's a myth of not, but I've read it a few places!
We actually have a sign up at the shelter, 10 reasons to adopt a black cat - "black cats are very slimming" and so on. But it's the end of kitten season & we've got about 15 black kittens left, and about 3 in other colors.
Pretty sure that's a myth about the allergens. I'm not allergic to my black cat, but my niece is. Coat and color don't have anything to do with it - it's the cat's saliva you're allergic to, and your allergies can be very specific. I'm more allergic to Siamese for some reason. But your allergies can also change - I used to be very allergic to cats, and after I hit 30 it decreased substantially.
