The truth is we don't know what percentage of cats are black. We know the percentage, very roughly, by observation ourselves. We don't know accurately, however, because there has been no survey or genetic calculations as to probability.

Based on my observations black cats are fairly commonplace. They are not as commonplace as tabby cats, tabby and white cats or probably bicolor cats. I am thinking on a worldwide basis here not just the USA or Europe etc.

On a worldwide basis I would estimate that the percentage of black cats is somewhere between 3 and 10%. I would be happy to be corrected however.

Let's remember that we are talking about domesticated random bred, stray, sem-feral and feral cats here. There are about half a

__b__illion of them on the planet. The proportion of purebred cats is miniscule in comparison and can be ignored in answering this question.
