Today Is Black Cat Appreciation Day
According to National Day Calendar, this a day where we can put to rest those silly myths that black cats bring bad luck and cherish how adorable and sweet these cats are.
- In some cultures it is believed that black cats bring good luck.
- Black cats are often overlooked for adoptions at shelters.
- Their black coats can "rust" and fade over time and turn into a redish brown color.
- Pope Gregory IX decided that black cats were used to worship the devil and saw them as evil creatures.
I really hate that black cats get overlooked at shelters. I just think about my black cat, Salem, and how much joy he has brought to my life. He is such an awesome cat. I wouldn't trade him for all the money in the world. If I was able to adopt more cats I would. If you have a black cat share with us a photo of him/her on our Facebook page!
