Many animal adoption shelters place a moratorium on black cat adoptions during October. They noticed an increase in black cat adoptions prior to Halloween and a return of many of those same black cats after the holiday because "it just isn't working out." In some cases, black cats have been found with their whiskers cut off, paws burned, shaved, and, in one case that I'm familiar with, hanged.
Black cats are not a costume accessory, and animal abuse should be prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law.
Here's a couple of pictures of my black cat , Sophie, who died September 20, 2007, and my mom's boyfriend's black cat , Midnight, now 14 years old, as well as some music for your listening pleasure, a little photo gallery of Sophie, and a photo gallery of black cats from everywhere.
