National Black Cat Day: Goth Holiday!

Would you believe that the 27th October is National Black Cat Appreciation Day? Last year it was on a Saturday – sorry, #Caturday – and always right before Halloween.

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 in animated manner! I hope you’ve enjoyed a sable-cat Saturday, with this collection of coal-black kittens – remember – #AdoptDontShop!

    Kuro and Yami are my two black kitties. Well, Kuro is mine, and technically Yami is my dad’s. They are both rescue cats. Kuro was adopted from a shelter and him finding a home was compounded in difficulty by him being a feral kitten. He’s still not the most social cat, and woe betide the fool that tries to pick him up, but he’s been with us 9 years and is much loved. He follows me around at a distance, like a not-very-subtle assassin. Yami followed Kuro home one day and doesn’t understand why Kuro was not happy about this. Yami is two. At one point he was in a foster cattery, but ran off and got lost, then a bit later he was caught by a catch-neuter-release program for stray/feral cats, and then he wandered to my Dad’s door. Yami is a small furry idiot, but he’s *our* small furry idiot. Yami is very affectionate, to the point of being a bit of a limpet; that cat is clingy!
