Spooktober Special: Black Cat Magic

One Friday closer to Halloween and the spooky vibes are in the air! Black cat magic is our weekly segment for the entire month of October, it's where we dedicate a moment to the glory and beauty that is black cats. If you missed out on our previous black cat magics specials, you should definitely take a moment to devour them! 

Black cats are known to be least likely to be adopted, due to their history of being "bad luck," well, all those who have little panthers can attest to that! Black cats, like all cats, bring nothing but joy to our lives and we're more than thankful for those little voids! If you have a void of your own, share a photo with us -- we'd love to see them!

Spooktober Special: Vampire Cats With Their Teef Peeking Out

Have you ever heard of the Vampire Cat? It's an elusive, terrifying creature of fluff that comes out only during the month of Halloween. It's the spookiest vampire of all. It jumps and flies, it bites and hisses, and while it is terrifying, it is also a cat. 

Vampire cats may be scary, but they are still as cuddly and wholesome as any other cat. One must not hesitate when they meet a cat with adorable toofs that peek out like fangs. Adopt them, love them, pet them. Even vampires need love. At least the ones of the cat variety. Especially now, during the month of Halloween, go give the vampire cats and black cats and all other underappreciated animals the love that they deserve to get.

Adorably Spooky Ghost Doggos

gasp did you feel that? It's the ghost puppy licking the tip of your nose. Oh my god, we know, it's terrifying. 

Seriously thought, ghost puppies, we would argue, are the least terrifying ghosts out there in the ether. They, of course, don't know that they are in fact supposed to be acting like ghosts and instead act like super excited puppies. They are even extra excited because their owners are laughing and cooing over them having a sheet over their heads- I mean, ghosts, they're ghosts, it's not a costume. Don't be fooled, they are incredibly spooky and not adorable at all. Shh!

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!

The Icelandic Christmas folklore of Jólakötturinn, depicts mountain-dwelling characters, in this case, a Yule Cat, who come to town during Christmas. The Yule Cat is said to be a large and wicked murder floof who lurks in the depths of the snowy countryside. 

And once a year, during Christmas time, the Yule Cat comes out and eats people who haven't gotten any new clothes to wear before Christmas Eve.

In this holiday-themed and interesting new series created by PBS, called Monstrum, and hosted by Dr. Emily Zarka, we learn all about the Yule Cat 

Zarka explains, in the video, why and how this legend came to be:

"The threat of the Yule Cat represents a rather practical problem—the need for warm clothes and successful wool production. Iceland began exporting wool in the Middle Ages, and it became vital to the Icelandic economy and survival. During this time, wool related chores were the responsibility of the entire household. …the largest tasks at hand were spinning and weaving. … In the past, Christmas gifts among most people were sparse and usually consisted of some small piece of clothing—but that was only possible if everyone had participated in the annual production of wool and done their fair share of the work. …Because the Yule Cat only attacks people who do not receive new clothes, this monster likely emerged as a response to the importance of wool production, scaring children (and even adults) into finishing their textile work in time for Christmas."

Spooky stuff! Happy Holidays to all and look out for that Yule Cat come next Christmas!
