(World reporter Dee Riggs, who likes cats more than blogger Mike Irwin, contributed this Everyday Business post.) 

No, you don't use Coconut Lime Face Scrub on cats but buying some will help a few of the little furballs. Black cats, to be specific.

Jess Piestrup and Whitney Acheson, owners of Moody Sisters Organic Skincare in Cashmere, say they will donate 30 percent of the profits from the sale of that product to help finance a cage for a black cat at the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society.

"They're just as fun and totally loving as any cat can be but they're not adopted as much as other cats," said Acheson. She thinks some of it may be superstition but "they're also not as colorful so people don't pick them out in a group."

Humane Society officials have said that's true. “They stay the longest,” said shelter worker Karen Headlee in a 2011 interview. “It’s the same with dogs — anything black tends to stay in shelters longer. They’re not as flashy so they don’t get noticed.”

Piestrup and Acheson chose a black cat as part of their business logo so it seemed only natural to do something to help the less popular-colored cats, they said.
