Today, Thursday 27th October 2016, is Black Cat Day!
Did you know that black cats are the least likely to get adopted from animal shelters? This is because of superstition, witchcraft and the fact that they are seen as unlucky.
I have owned black (or black and white) cats all my life. I currently have two cats, Alfie who is black with white patches on his belly, paws and chest, and Marley who is all black.
Did you know that some black cats are tabbies in disguise?
When Marley sunbaths in the light coming through the kitchen window, you can see that he is actually hiding a beautiful brown tabby like pattern under that black fur.
Marley currently weighs approximately 6kg and he is huge! He walks around like a big cat, so I like to call him my mini house panther. He is one of the most loving and caring cats I know. When I’m in his company, I feel like he is the one looking after me!
At this time of year, it is a dangerous time for pets and animals, especially black kitties. Please keep your pets at home during the Halloween season where it is safe and warm.
The next time you’re thinking of adopting a cat or kitten, notice how many black cats you see and spare a thought for them. They are just as loving as the next kitty. I got Alfie and Marley from Cats Protection
