Black Cat's and Halloween
Black cats and Halloween seem to go hand in hand. For centuries the ebony beauties have been associated with witches as their "familiar's", often turning themselves into cats. During the witch hunts of the 17th century, cats were drowned with those believed to be witch's.
Even today there are those that are very superstitious about a black cat crossing their path.
Have you ever watched the gaze of a black cat watching a fire in the fire place?
I have to say I have had a black cat in my home since I was a very young child. They are my very favorite and I think the sweetest of all.
Fortunately Halloween is not a good time for our raven critters.It is best to keep your kitty indoors at least the week of Halloween. Most shelters and rescues will not adopt out black cats during the month of October.
