A HOMELESS black cat is hoping Halloween will bring her luck and some new owners.
Jezzabelle has been at the Blue Cross rehoming centre in Bromsgrove since July and seems to be suffering from the curse of black cats, who staff say are regularly overlooked and take far longer to find homes for than others.
Deputy manager Robbi Chaudhuri said: "We have a few black cats hoping for a new home this Halloween. It would make our Halloween if someone out there would give Jezzabelle a chance in a new home.
"We're unsure if it's because they are the subject of myths and superstitions or simply because they just don't get noticed beside more eye-catching ginger and tabby cats, but black cats take longer to rehome."
