Halloween and the Black Cat Superstition

October 12th, 2009 · No Comments · Cat Treats, Catnip

witchandcatHalloween is about 2 weeks away and many people are getting ready for the fun of the festivities. “Black Cats” are the focus of witches and bad luck. Not True!!!

In the Middle Ages it was a common belief that witches could shape shift into a cat. Today there are many “black cat” superstitions such as a cat walking under a ladder. However, most people take these thoughts as silly.  Black cats are loved just as any other cats. 

Many families like to dress up the Cats this time of the year.  However, do our cats really enjoy wearing a Halloween costume? I don’t think so. Most cats don’t like to be dressed up. In fact, I think Halloween is the least favorite holidays for most cats.  The loud noises, screaming kids coming in and out the front door, scary costumes and constant opening the front door completely frighten our poor little feline friends.  On this Halloween eve, I recommend you keep your cat in one room during the trick-or-treat festivities. If you have an outdoor cat, bring he in for the evening. Don’t force your cat to dress up in a costume they don’t want to wear.  Keep your cat away from candy because it could make them sick.  And, finally give your Cat his favorite Halloween treat  catnip.
