The History of #NationalBlackCatDay

Nothing is quite as elegant as a black cat... except one in a tuxedo.
Today Black cats are a classic Halloween symbol, and objects of superstition. However in Celtic mythology, it was believed that fairies could take the form of black cats, and were seen as sign of good luck. And cats in ancient Egypt were revered highly, partly due to their ability to combat vermin such as mice, rats. Bastet, a woman depicted with the head of a black cat, was originally a lioness warrior goddess of the sun throughout most of ancient Egyptian history.

Cats Protection, an animal charity in the United Kingdom, founded National Black Cat Day to raise awareness concerning the lower rates of adoption for black cats. For too long black cats have waited in the shadows as their colorful counterparts found homes. October 27th is National Black Cat Day, a time to recognize the beautiful black cats in our lives and raise awareness of those still waiting for a loving home.
