Tips for capturing domestic black cats

I'm a volunteer with a local cat rescue group and after seeing gorgeous photos of cats on Instagram, I thought some candid snapshots might help with our adoptions.  I'm not a talented photographer and I don't have a lot of experience, but usually if I click enough times, at least some shots will turn out usable.  That's the beauty of digital photography.  Unfortunately, I'm not having any luck with capturing our domestic black cats.  They just seem to disappear into the background somehow.  Two of our cats love to snuggle and they look adorable in real-life, but once I take the shot, the image looks like a giant black mass of...something.  Do you have any tips for photographing domestic black cats so they look their best?
