It's time to roll out the Red Carpet for a new pet in your life. With the Oscars right around the corner, the West Suburban Humane Society in Downers Grove is celebrating the ACATemy Awards with discounted adoption rates on black cats, black and white cats and tuxedo kitties in February. Adoption rates are just $25 for the month.

Black cats are statically least likely to be adopted, unfortunately, and the West Suburban Humane Society has an influx of black cats with over 25 currently available in their open air cattery. Normal adoption fees vary from $25 to $100 per cat, depending on its age. The $25 per cat rate is a great savings during February.

As part of the campaign, West Suburban Humane Society in Downers Grove have created at top ten list for reasons to adopt a black kitty.

10. They look like little panthers.

9. A lint brush isn't required for a black tie affair.

8. Holding a black cat is very slimming.

7. Black cats will match any decor.

6. When you love a black cat, luck is on your side.

5. They are a great accessory to any outfit.

4. Hey, they don't care what color you are!

3. Black cats are like onyx, a beautiful gem.

2. Love knows no color.

And the number one reason to adopt a black cat . . . . .
