Saturday, August 17th is Black Cat Appreciation Day.
Black Cat Appreciation Day was launched to show people that a black cat could be the perfect cat for them, and help raise awareness about black cats in general. Because of superstitious beliefs in some cultures, black cats are sometimes associated with bad luck and, sadly, are more likely to be put to sleep or wait a long time to be adopted from shelters. Not only are the superstitions about them bringing bad luck completely untrue, but you might find a black cat to be a fantastic feline companion for you. They truly have very unique personalities! If you’ve been looking for a rescue cat yourself, why not consider a black cat?
If you already own a black cat, on Black Cat Appreciation Day share photos of your special pet and help spread awareness about the day on social media.
