Midnight 'n' Kiki ~ our little black beauties!
Anyhow, I love this idea as black cats, of all the cats out there, seem to have gotten somewhat of a bad rap throughout our American history. Between being associated with numerous (and ridiculous) superstitions such as being cast as "evil," and religious persecution these cats have surely paid their dues. And, although this is no longer the 17th century, these beautiful cats are unfortunately still subjected to society's ignorance. Such ignorance has caused many Animal Shelters to refuse allowing black cats to be adopted by prospective cat guardians every year around the holiday of Halloween.
Lets face it, these guys deserve a day of their own and suffice it to say they have most certainly earned it! So, Happy "belated" Black Cat Appreciaton Day everyone!"
I had also come across a wonderful article on the net about this special day and thought perhaps you all might be interested in reading it ... In Celebration of Black Cats.
