Black cats often get back reps and superstitions too. But there are a lot of facts about black cats you might want to check out.

Black cats are also the cat that is the least to be adopted. Not to mention, usually the most euthanized cat. So why not go adopt one today!

National Black Cat Day

Now Regular National Black Cat Day is held annually on October 27, just 4 days before Halloween (October 31). This day is to help raise awareness of homeless black cats.

Black Cat Month

October is Black Cat Month.

Often Black cats can’t be adopted in October due to fear of them being used for Satanic purposes or Halloween props.
