As his tweet was going viral, the little one was smart enough to use Internet fame as additional leverage
Doyle said that his daughter wanted to adopt a black cat because they are often the most neglected due to the superstitions surrounding them.
It’s true. Kentucky Humane Society Communications Director Andrea Blair said that the organization has concerned people posting on their Facebook page, pleading with them to cease all-black cat adoptions near Halloween every year. “They have the very best intentions, but the unintended consequences are the perpetuation of the myth – which leads to black cats spending even more time in shelters.”
According to Blair, “Because of their common color, [black cats] are the [ones] who are most likely to be overlooked in favor of cats with more varied color patterns. Black cats often take two to three times longer to get adopted.”
However, despite his daughter’s strong arguments, Doyle is still hesitant about adopting a cat because his wife is allergic to them.
People on social media, on the other hand, were very impressed by the girl’s presentation and some even suggested breeds that wouldn’t affect his wife.
