Black Cat Appreciation Day
Today we hand over Pet Shopping to Black Cat Appreciation Day.

Frighteningly, black cats, and dogs, are the first to be euthanased at shelters, they get tough treatment because they are the victims of superstition, and fear. Yes, even in 2013 black cats are seen as evil – shakes head. Many shelters are offering Free or much reduced adoptions of black cats to celebrate Black Cat Appreciation Day – check online and local to you.

Cheezeburger has a blog post about it that is full of information and links to sites and Mr Wayne Morris who began Black Cat Appreciation Day. Do a search for Black Cat Appreciation Day to find local news items, check out the Black Cat Facebook page, check the Catster page for ways to help, or check the Daily Voice page.

Spread the word that Black Cats Rock.

    I have two black cats and they rock!! It is sad that any cat is discriminated against because of the color of its coat. Their hearts are just as pure and loving as any other kitty!

    Pawesome post. We don’t have any black cats living with us since Talia became an angel last year. But it’s the first time in the head peep’s adult life she hasn’t had a black cat. You’d better believe we appreciate them!

    We can’t believe that in this day and age, black cats still get a bad rap. Black is beautiful!
