Spooktober Special: Black Cat Magic

Welcome back to another installment of Black Cat Magic! Once a week, throughout the month of October, we will dedicate a list to the magic that is black cats. 

There is so much negative stigma towards these house panthers. People still believe that if a black cat crosses your path, it symbolizes bad luck. Black cats are known to not be adopted as often as other cats. And worse of all, there is a belief that black cats are in danger around Halloween time. Due to these superstitious, it may be wise to make sure your house panther(s) are kept indoors. Animal shelters also tend to hold the adoption of black cats until after Halloween. 

Now, back to admiring and celebrating these beautiful creatures! Not only are black cats gorgeous, they are also one of the goofiest cats around! If you have a black cat, you already know. If you don't own a house panther and need some proof, just check out some of the silly videos below! Oh, and, you'll definitely want to have the sound on for the following videos!

Spooktober Special: Black Cat Magic

When it comes to Halloween, we absolutely love to feature the Halloweeniest cat there is - the black cat! And to break the superstition that black cats are unlucky. Because, frankly, how can something so sweet and adorable be unlucky? Statistically, black cats are the least likely to be adopted and we need to fix that. 

Black cats are magic. For those of you who own a mini-house panther, you already know. We're here to spread that magic! Each week, during October, we will be featuring a segment solely on black cats! Be sure not to blink, or you might miss it!

Deep Diving With Some Shark Facts

It's the beginning of Spooktober and what's spookier than creatures of the deep sea? So much is unknown and the information we do know can be just as scary as the unknown! 

Sharks. If someone tells you, while in shark-infested waters, that they aren't afraid of sharks... they're definitely lying to you. Sharks are terrifying! Yes, they're also amazing and very important to the balance of the ecosystem but that doesn't change the fact that they are essentially dinosaurs. They've got this haunting movement and look, those black eyes... and all those teeth! 

As part of our Spooktober special, we bring to you 25 shark facts that are pretty unnerving. Enjoy!

Beautiful White Pit Bulls Photoshopped Into Iconic Characters

Introducing The Whitest Pups You Know, which is quite possibly the coolest and cutest Pit Bull page. All three Pit Bulls; Beebs, Stache, and Jax were adopted separately but together complete one another. 

The lucky owner of these three beautiful pups is Kelsey. In a blog, Lovabull, Kelsey tells the entire story of how she came to adopt all three pups. Since adopting the Pit Bulls, Kelsey wanted to spread awareness of how loving and kind this breed truly is, and to stop the Pit Bull hate. 

"I hope through taking silly and derpy photos of my bully breeds, people will see that and want to adopt one of their own.

All dogs need a chance, don't be afraid to adopt just because of their looks or the stereotypes that follow them. My biggest frustration is people automatically assuming they know my dogs because of what their head shape looks like. All dogs are individuals, regardless of their breed.

If I could do anything for these dogs and money wasn't an option…I would get a bigger property to take in fosters and also use it as a sanctuary for the dogs who are having a hard time finding their forever homes."

Amen to that! Check out some of Kelsey's amazing photos of her lovabull's below! A majority of the photoshops are very Halloweenie-inspired which has got us pretty heckin' excited that October is right around the corner!
