There are a lot of myths out there about black cats and a lot of people are afraid of them. Many in shelters have a hard time finding homes. I have the most loving black cat named Lippy. I got her at the San Antonio Animal Shelter when she was a wee little kitten at the beginning of December 2001. She is the most loving, cuddly, vocal, and interactive cat I have ever had and believe me I’ve had A LOT of cats in my lifetime. I’ve heard many other black cats described the same way. She’s actually more like a dog!
Please take special care this Halloween and keep your pets inside so that they too can have a Happy Halloween.
