When is national black cat day?

CATS are among one of the most popular house pets, with the average person owning two felines.

While cat lovers celebrate their pets every day, there is a special date on which black cats get honorably recognized.

When is national black cat day?

National black cat day is recognized on October 27, 2021.

The day aims to promote the importance of black cats in society as they are often regarded as animals that are of “bad luck.”

The special day is always celebrated on October 27, just four days before Halloween to promote the importance of adopting black cats.

The idea that black cats were “unlucky” and evil originated in the 13th century. 

According to National Today, Pope Gregory IX first suggested black cats were associated with Satan in a Latin church document.

How do you celebrate black cat day?

Black cat day can be celebrated in various ways.

Most commonly, people with black cats show off their feline on social media with the hashtag #nationalblackcatday to promote the holiday.

Some also attend small gatherings with other black cats and have parties to honor them.

Another way to celebrate is to donate to shelters and cat organizations to help the animal community thrive and find homes.

Many people also use the special day to adopt a black cat in need, as they are two-thirds less likely to be adopted than white cats. 

How much does it cost to adopt a cat?

Cat adoption fees range depending on the business, the age of the animal, behavior, breed, and medical needs.

In some agencies, fees range from $15 to $200 for cats one to seven years old and $100 to $200 for kittens two to 11 months old.

In some adoption organizations such as Cat Adoption Team, cats that are eight years or older have a waived adoption fee.

The adoption fee includes a variety of services such as a medical examination, a spayed or neutered feline, costs for a microchip and registration, and vaccinations.

Stores such as Petsmart and Petco also host cat adoption events for a reduced price as an incentive to give the animals a home.
