Adopting Out Black Cats around Halloween

Just a note of warning. If you are adopting out cats, it is best not to adopt out black cats during October. There are cults that sacrifice black cats on Halloween. The kind of people who do this don't always make their real character obvious by their appearance.

Thanks for the reminder, Felix. Absolutely sickening that we must worry about this. I guess I am probably more sensitive about this, being a black cat owner. I just makes me sad thinking about things like this happening. ))))

Sickening is a good word, Lori. I have always had black cats. I hate the connotation that they are in some way connected to the occult.

Yah.. I called the SPCA about two black kittens for sale at a petstore, and I was concerned about Halloween and they didn't seem healthy. And they didn't care! What's with that?

I have my black&white kitty, and if I don't see him for 1 hour, I panic. He's always with me

If you filed a report of unhealthy kittens in a store, they are obligated to investigate. If not, something is very wrong...

We can't stop a store from selling them. As long as they have food and water
That's EXACTLY what they said. Made me mad..

The problem is that pet stores are in the business for the profit, not for the welfare of the animals. Once the money is in the cash register they could care less about what happens to the animal.

Thanks for the reminder. Maybe I should keep Jet in on Halloween night. (As you probably guessed from his name, he's all black). It's annoying that we should even have to worry about this when there is enough animal cruelty already, but there are some sick people who just don't care.

Important Safety Tip. If you have black ferals, keeping them indoors til 11/1 would be a good idea. These creeps don't always dress like heavy metal fashion victims. Sometimes they look completely "normal."

I'm actually adopting a black cat on Saturday...he is black with orange eyes. I wonder if the woman I am adopting him from has thought about this. Honestly, I know she is relieved to get him adopted since she has a lot of black kitties and told me that so many people don't want black cats. I'm just glad that she has all of them with her instead of them being out on the streets this month.
