We Are Afraid!!!
Well me suwe hopes you all had a gweat weekend. After this short update da west of meez posty will be hooman speak as we awe gunna do one of those impurrtant educational postys. We had a vewy fwuitful (as mommy calls it) weekend. Mommy got a lot mowe unpacked but still has a way to go. Da movers put stuff fwum all ovew da house in evewy box so mommy spends a lot of time walkin’ back and forff dat kuld be spent unpackin’. So hers still not fwu, but hopes to be by da time da fwidge gets here on Wednesday. Now dat wuz a little update ‘bout what be goin’ on and now meez gunna move on to meez post topic.
It is October, which of course you all know, and that means halloween. As you all know black cats have a bad reputaion. Even more so than perhaps the pit bull. Black cats have been called evil, bad luck and witches familiars among others. And even in this day and time there are still people who believe this nonsense. Black cats are the least adoptable cat in shelters. there are rescues who refuse to take them in because they know the likelihood of a quick adoption is very low. Although a black cat with any other color at all doesn’t have the same stigma. For instance the tuxedo pattern. A black cat with white markings. So why then is an all black cat thought to be so bad? The reality is that most black cats are extremely intelligent and loving. They make great pets. We are featurin’ a few here today that are up for adoption to real and lovin’ forever homes.
But it does get worse. Crimes are committed against black cats more often at this time of year. Torture and death are not uncommon. And all because black cats are thought to be mysterious and throwaways. But black cats aren’t the only ones. White cats are sought this time of year as they are seen as symbols of purity in animal sacrifices. Lots of shelters have implemented policies that ban adoptions of black and solid white cats during the halloween season. Thus making these abusers have to look elsewhere for their victims. And so they start combing neighborhoods for pets that are aloud outdoors or strays that have no home. Are you angry yet? Because we are.
Mommy says that when she looks at us she can’t imagine anyone wanting to hurt us or our kin. But those people do exist. Let me tell you, we feel, we have senses, we love and trust. And when we are abused we know it, WE FEEL IT, and WE ARE AFRAID!!! We don’t want to be hurt and we for sure don’t want to die a horrible death alone without love. PLEASE, any of you that allow your cats outside, PLEASE keep them inside. Especially during this time of year. As these people will take any cat or animal for that matter, not just black or white cats. If you have strays in your area please do what you can to help them. Maybe they could stay in your garage for the week surrounding halloween, or even call the local rescues or shelter. As bad as it sounds, a humane death is preferable to the torture we would face at the hands of these abusers.
We don’t like to write da sad posts and bad news posts, but sumtimes there’s just no escapin’ it. Sumtimes da news is bad or even sad. We know a lot of you love this time of year as we awe seein’ on yous blogs, but wemember to purrtect yous furbabies. Mommy sez abuse and animal cwuelty happens all da time, but is faw mowe purrevalent duwin’ this time of year. And da laws in da U.S. awe so minimal fur animal abuse and cwuelty dat it’s almost like there is no law. But you can all help. We need to continue to educate da public ‘bout da wunnewfulness of black cats. And dat they not be bad luck or evil or any udder bad fing. Underneaff all dat black fur awe veins dat bleed red and a heart dat beats da same as any udder. And a motow box dat just wants sumpawdy to purr fur and luv and call their vewy own.
