Your cat is very beautiful; I have a soft spot for black cats myself, as I had a very nice one as a kid. We also have a black cat with green eyes, and indeed it is hard to get a good photo of her. I'm happy to have adopted her from the shelter, because black cats have a hard time getting adopted.
Luci was also rescued. She had been thrown-out on the loading dock of a paper mill.
We adopted her when she was only 10 weeks old.
