Did you know that October is Black Cat Month?

These sweet felines have been long maligned. In fact, many humane societies are so worried about mistreatmet of the black cat on Halloween that they don’t allow any black cat adoptions during the entire month of October.

The holiday of Halloween dates back to the Dark Ages. Once truly spooky traditions have morphed over the years into much more light-hearted (but still mischievous) celebrations. Here is a fun look at some of the facts and folklore that describe how All Hallows Eve came to be celebrated as Halloween. Join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Halloween.

Halloween will be celebrated on Sunday October 31st.
