It’s Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day! This special day of the year, marked every August 17th, was launched in efforts to raise awareness about black cats and debunk countless misconceptions about these fantastic pets. Often associated with bad luck, witchcraft and evil, black cats still seem to be hunted by the spooky myths ever since the ancient times and to this very day. Interestingly, long before the tales about evil black cats even began to spread, Ancient Egyptians actually believed that they were symbols of luck, wealth and strength and the Japanese that they were a symbol of prosperity.
