Cats and Halloween

There have been several legends about black cats being evil, associated with witchcraft, causing bad luck and a variety of other dark things. This bad rap has actually been fueled further by Halloween advertisements and the holiday decorations. Halloween cards depict not only witches and goblins, but also black cats - a black cat balanced on a witchís broom stick or a black cat with its back arched as part of the dark and eerie picture.

Although many believed cats to be sacrificed in Wiccan rituals, this is never the case because Wicca is a nature based religion. Due to this and other fears, some shelters donít allow black cats to be adopted near Halloween.

While the myths about black cats being evil isnít what it used to be, there are still some concerns we should have when it comes to Halloween and our cats Ė of all colors.

With a little extra TLC you can ensure your kitty will have very little stress and a safe Halloween.
