When one adjective is used to describe two or more nouns joined by a conjunction how is the gender and number of the adjective determined?

For example, which of the following is correct:
1) Чёрные собака и кот
2) Чёрная собака и кот
3) Чёрный собака и кот

I always assumed the first would be right, but then I saw several people use a singular adjective to (apparently) describe two nouns joined by и, so now I'm confused. I checked all my grammar books and searched the internet but still haven't been able to find a straight answer to this seemingly simple question.
