My local Humane Society does not adopt out black cats around Halloween. They say the risk of people hurting black cats this time of year is too great.

I'm ashamed of you, EB.
Why not just name him "slavey"

Wow.
A white cat name Princess and a black one named Blacky. I never thought you were so racist.

Do you ever do magic tricks where you turn the black cat into a white cat? They used to do those tricks at minstrel shows.
But with people.

Why close the pool? They usually don't let Blacky's in, anyway!...

I know, right? I came in here to express my opinion on the festive conversation, and was bombarded with extreme racism. I don't know what to say anymore other than to ask, when you feed them both do you give the black one more food for reparations?

You're so fixated on this whole black and white thing today, and they prefer to be called dogs without color. I'm very surprised with you.

I bet she doesn't even let them eat out of the same bowl.

I've spoken to Jesse Jackson, EB. He said he can make all of this go away if you want to make a donation to his charity.

I agree since cats are the spawn of satan we don't want to unleash their evil on those poor little kids running around.

Sounds good as long as the shelter is either a no-kill shelter, or the black cats get some extra time since they can't be adopted around Halloween.

MD, I just checked, and this is the same policy in MY area! It's evidently a fairly widespread policy, so there must be a legitimate concern. My personal feelings about cats aside, I gotta go with "good policy"... :)

EB you should make the nonblack cats pay for the suffering of your black cat in the name of feline justice.

Though even I wouldn't ever hurt a cat for any reason other than self defense I still said this is a good policy because it's a bad idea to adopt out cats in the first place. Year round. Get a dog. Hell, get gator. At least you know you'll be safe.

Excellent policy! One of my cats is black and I don't let him outside on Halloween.

I think generally this is a good policy, but they should wave it for people who can prove they're good pet owners through maybe a vet recommendation or something. My family owns 3 cats who are all primarily black, and one of them is solid black.

Black dogs typically aren't used for satanic rituals. Nut jobs prefer black cats to practice dark magic. People are cray.

I should say that my mom and I went in to PetSmart for dog food when an adoption event was going on. An hour later I had a black cat. Umm teacup black panther I should say.

Good policy, even if someone really wanted that specific color of cat waiting a few weeks isn't all that big a deal, you could have that cat for 10+ years anyways!
