Names for Black Cats
Searching for names for black cats? Black cats can certainly inspire your creativity. They’re both beautiful and mysterious.
I just love black cats. I guess the fascination started in my childhood.
One of our first family cats was solid black and we had so much fun naming him. In the end though, we chose a name that had nothing to do with the color black. We named him Trapito (which is Spanish for little rag). My brother also has a beautiful black cat.
