Black Cats are Pawsome

By Taylor Mundy

There is definitely a superstition related to the black cat.  Some people think they’re bad luck if they cross your path.  However, black cats are simply pawsome, friendly pets that make great furry best friends.  Check out our compilation of why we love black kitties.

Black cats are Halloween icons

But they are so much more than spooktacular costumes


Black cats are beautiful…
and humble

They can sleep almost anywhere

And they pride themselves into fitting into every sized box

Anytime, anywhere

Even clementine boxes!

Black cats are super smart

And will help you study so you can get on their level

Sometimes black cats will sprinkle kitty hair in your food to add love

They may even share their catnip wine

Black cats will help you pack for adventures (with the promise you’ll bring home kitty souvenir toys)

And take care of household chores like cleaning the bathroom while you’re away

They make excellent loaves of bread

Like wow!

But sometimes they forget to put their tongue back in their mouths – blep

Black cats all love sinks.  Every single one of them!

And have super cute toe beans

Some even have extra toes!

They match any home décor

And are always ready for a formal occasion

They are great at hide-and-seek

But not so great at helping with the laundry

Black cats are like magic!  They instantly make you feel better

They cheer you up

Support your hobbies and interests

Alert you of anything “new”

Celebrate holidays and special occasions

Help provide for the family

Make you laugh

And give you unconditional love

Happy International Black Cat Month!

Do you have a black cat or one that left paw prints on your heart?  Celebrate them today and donate to the SPCA to help shelter kitties in need.

P.S. A special thank you to all the families across Nova Scotia who submitted adorable photos of your black kitties.  Please give them a snuggle from us!
