Would you believe that the 27th October is National Black Cat Appreciation Day? This year it’s on a Saturday – sorry, #Caturday – and it’s right before Halloween. Whilst you’re reading this, I’m in Whitby for the Goth Weekend. It’s like the dark side of every moon just aligned!
Please enjoy some carefully curated content containing our cuddly, curious cat comrades. Remember, according to figures black cats who desperately need homes are often overlooked at shelters, spending up to a week longer in care. If you can give a loving home to a needy cat, please consider a pitch-black puss!
This purring proud parent is no doubt instructing their cute kitten in the ways of the cat – crouching, catching, and killing (and clawing their way into our hearts!)
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse:
and his name that sat on him was Death,
and Hell followed with him.”
Stirring stuff from the King James Bible, but surely this cute critter isn’t planning the Apocalypse… right? 🤔
This costumed cat is ready for candy and cuddles at Halloween… but can you bring them to her, please? This couch is just too comfortable right now…
Here’s a moonlit moggy of supernatural standing, looking for her next victim… I mean, loving owner! All beautifully illustrated by the talented Nat Jones!
I would immediately surrender to these jet-black jellybeans!
Perusing her proud parentage, this purring puss is pleased to discover her parentage includes the chariot-pulling magical miaows of none other than Norse goddess Freya!
“If it fits, I sits” proclaims the more fearless feline we’ve met. Behind every grinning gargoyle is a comfy cat it seems!
Here’s a welcoming committee of connoisseur cats to consider the qualities of just who’s calling… and the quality of candy they deserve! Expect long queues outside this cat-controlled castle!
And finally, nobody’s Halloween costume can beat this melted miaow’s superbly slinky style! I hope you’ve enjoyed a sable-cat Saturday, with this collection of coal-black kittens – remember – #AdoptDontShop!
