Here’s some pictures of our Halloween festivities. Our cats are both rescues; Rimmon is a black kitty and Zakar (We call him Zak Zak for short or whiner-butt) is a polydactal manx. No tail and ginormous paws. Statistically, black cats are the most commonly ignored, abandoned, and abused. The current superstition that black cats are evil is a mixture of Hollywood symbolism, American advertising, misplaced superstition and biology. Some cats developed their “cry” to mimic the sound of a human child, which is part of where they got their reputation for being a witch’s familiar back in the day. (Just recently in the UK, they launched a Black Cat Awareness Day to highlight the issue that so many need a home.)
Anyway, sorry I got off on a tangent there. Think it’s crazy that people don’t like an animal (and sometimes people) purely based on its coloring. Our cats definitely have their own personalities! By the way, can you tell the vampire bat was mine?
Happy Halloween Eve!
