Anyone with a black cat knows they are far from bad luck. Just like any other feline, black cats provide their families with companionship and a lot of love. Unfortunately, some people believe the bad luck myth and think seeing a black cat is a bad omen of things to come. This silly superstition is especially evident around Halloween.
Sadly, this widely perpetuated myth puts black cats at an increased risk for abuse this time of year. If you own a black cat that ventures outside, it’s a good idea to bring him or her indoors on Halloween night.
With all the commotion of trick-or-treating and the unfamiliar sights and sounds, it’s really better for all cats (no matter what color) to stay safely inside on the 31st.
