The "spooky" truth. Black Cats and "Witch Craft" Happy Halloween! - Not Just Pets

The "spooky" truth. Black Cats and "Witch Craft" Happy Halloween!

Before I get started, I wanted to give everyone an update on where we are on our way to becoming incorporated as a Non-Profit and getting the elusive 501(c)(3) We have submitted our paperwork back in May, They received said paperwork but needed to add "." to the word Inc on a couple of the lines. Resubmitted it again in August this time. Just received word back that we now need to resign the document and send it in... AGAIN... so that is where we are 😅 I am doing this on my own so thanks for the continued support and all the patience. WE WILL GET THIS GOING!!! 

Now, back to todays topic! The one and only precious baby....

Midnight R.I.P💔Midnight

I wanted to talk about a subject that hits home for me, especially around this time, the notorious black cat. Are black cats really sought out during the "Spoopy" season more than any other time?? Well I am here to tell you that black cats, despite popular belief, are just like any other cat out there. They have their personalities that shine like any other cat, and they make EXCELLENT hunters due to their dark fur, especially at night, and they sure do have their quirks. Having Midnight in my life showed me a world of laughter, love and insight to cats and how they behave that I have not seen in any other cats I have had the pleasure of having in my family. They are an excellent companion and are more than just a commodity to have during Halloween. So lets get to it shall we....

Black cats have long been associated with superstitions and myths. From being considered bad luck to being associated with witches, these feline beauties have faced their fair share of prejudice. But it's time to set the record straight and celebrate the magic and mystery that black cats bring into our lives.

So are black cats really bad luck? Let's debunk this myth once and for all. Black cats are not bad luck! In fact, in many cultures, they are considered symbols of good luck and prosperity. In ancient Egyptian mythology, black cats were revered and believed to bring good fortune to their owners. So, if you come across a black cat, consider yourself lucky! Which I can definitely attest to with Midnight. 

We can all blame it on the witch trials of the Middle Ages. During this dark period in history, black cats were often seen as companions of witches and were believed to possess supernatural powers. This association stuck around, leading to the unfair demonization of black cats. But let's be real, black cats are just as lovable and cuddly as any other cat, Midnight would sleep on or near my head every night, keeping me safe and warm.

It's true that black cats are often associated with Halloween. But contrary to popular belief, they are not adopted or bought more frequently during this time. In fact, many animal shelters are cautious about adopting out black cats during Halloween due to concerns about their safety. It's important to remember that black cats deserve love and care all year round, not just during spooky season.

Black cats are not only beautiful, but they also have unique personalities. They are often described as mysterious, independent, and affectionate. Plus, they make the perfect companions for late-night cuddle sessions and Netflix marathons. So, if you're looking for a feline friend who will bring a touch of elegance and charm to your life, a black cat might just be the purrfect choice.

There's something undeniably captivating about black cats. Their sleek, shiny fur and piercing eyes give them an air of mystery and sophistication. They are like little panthers, prowling through our lives with grace and poise. So, let's celebrate the beauty and magic of black cats, and put an end to the superstitions and myths that surround them.

Remember, adopting a black cat is not just about owning a pet; it's about embracing a little bit of magic in your life. So, the next time you come across a black cat, don't be afraid to give them a chance. Who knows, they might just bring a little extra luck and love into your world.

I had the pleasure of having a black cat in my life for a very long time. She was my protector and my rock for a very very long time. She had crossed over to the other side this past August on my birthday in an extremely tragic fashion. It had taken me some time to be ok to talk about it, but during this Halloween season, what better way to honor my faithful friend than by shining some light on a subject that gets misinterpreted a lot. 

I dedicate this post to Midnight. She was more than "just a pet" to me, she was family. We have been through moves and hardships. Through pain and abandonment. We had each other and only each other for nearly 16 years. I cherish every moment I had with her and know in my heart that she is still here, watching over us. Messing around with my other two fur babies that are here with me, keeping them in line to fulfill her legacy. She had a fierce soul and showed me a love that I did not know existed. Losing her on my birthday was one of the hardest things to ever have happened to me in this present moment, it felt as though a piece of me was ripped away. I know it was her time to go and I am grateful for every second I had her in my life. I will never forget what she taught me and I hope her spirit continues to live on in all the black cats of the world. 

Love you baby girl 💕
