What happened during Dr Scott’s segment on This Morning?
Meanwhile, during the segment, Dr Scott explained why people shouldn’t have a bad perception of black cats.
Not only are black cats associated with Halloween and witches, but many believe they are a symbol of bad luck.
Because of these superstitions, Dr Scott said black cats are often overlooked by owners looking for a feline friend.
Dr Scott joined volunteer for Shropshire Street Cats Maxine Beech, who revealed it takes them a lot longer to home black cats.
She said: “The people who have adopted black cats absolutely love them.
“I think there is still a superstition about black cats bringing bad luck.
“They’re seen as perhaps a bit boring and more common. And they don’t photograph very well.”
