What are you looking for?

This time of year we hear lots of comments from feline lovers regarding black cats. But not to worry, just because this is an incredibly superstitious time of year doesn’t mean that there are people lining up to adopt black cats with bad intentions. Actually, we at the Bangor Humane Society find it’s quite the opposite. And while we don’t discount black cats during Halloween, we do continue to adopt them out through the holiday into loving homes that fully understand the benefits to having this particular type of feline. Consider these reasons to adopt a black cat the next time you’re at a shelter:

-Bad luck, you say? Black cats are actually a sign of good luck in both Asia and theUK!

-Are you into playing hide-and-go-seek outside with your feline friends? It’s safe to say you’ll have the upper hand this winter when your black cat stands out against that white fluffy snow.

-Black matches everything. No need to look for a new wardrobe, your new feline will go perfectly with that new sweater.

-Love knows no color. We don’t know about other shelters, but around our neck of the woods black cats are some of the most loving.

Aside from helping to dispel any rumors that black cats shouldn’t be adopted this time of year, we’d also like to share a few tips on how to keep your pets safe and sound during Halloween.
