Did you know that black cats have their own holiday? Yup. August 17th is Black Cat Appreciation Day, an entire day devoted to the cuteness of ebony-hued felines. And, sure, here in the states, black cats conjure up ideas of age-old superstitions and bad luck, but elsewhere it's a different story. For instance, the Japanese tend to see black cats as nothing but good luck, and Swedish culture insists that the furry felines bring prosperity. 

So, let's celebrate! We collected some of our favorite black cat photos from our collection of royalty-free images. Each one is available for downloading. Enjoy!
