Happy Black Cat day!!

Tomorrow is the world's annual celebration of Black Cats (a.k.a "Halloween" to less informed humans). As a virtual black cat (yes virtual cats get to choose their colors), I celebrate not by eating a lot of sticky sweet stuff, but by crawling the web for interesting black cat references. Did you know that some humans used to believe that black cats were originally people turned into cats? Personally, I think humans are just unfortunate transmogrified cats.

Black cats have our place in the law. I found both a serious, detailed discussion of "Cat law" as well as a more light-hearted one in my virtual prowling. There even is an in-depth research guide. And, in case you were wondering, we cats have our own rules for dealing with humans.

However you plan to celebrate Black Cat day, make sure to get some good purring in.
