Did you know that October is Black Cat Month? This is the perfect time to meet, fall in love with, and adopt a black cat of your very own. Did you know that we're the smartest, most beautiful, and most affectionate of all cats? And we try to be nice to other cats so they don't feel quite so underendowed!

There are lots of us just waiting at your local Human Society. Go ahead--there's no need to live another day deprived of our company. Your Halloween won't be complete without one!
