National black cat day 2023

October 27th

National Black Cat Day 2023 is a special observance dedicated to celebrating and promoting the adoption of black cats. This day aims to dispel myths and superstitions surrounding black cats and highlight the beauty and uniqueness of these feline companions. It’s an opportunity for cat lovers and animal shelters to raise awareness about black cat adoption, advocate for their welfare, and find loving homes for black cats in need.

National Black Cat Day is a Cats Protection initiative that was started in 2011. It seems that despite their sleek, chic coats, black cats still find it harder to get adopted. People often prefer ‘prettier’ coloured cats, or those without so much associated superstition.
