Friday The 13th- Keep Your Cats Safe

albuquerque catIt is Friday the 13th, one of the spookiest dates of the year. On Friday the 13th, a lot of people get really superstitious. They won’t walk under ladders, are extra careful about not breaking mirrors, they throw salt over their shoulder, and they are paranoid about black cats.

Some people believe that it is bad luck for a black cat to cross your path. This is not true. I have had many black cats cross my path and it has always been wonderful when the do…because they are cats! But on days where superstition is high, people don’t always do things they would normally do. There is always a higher incidence of violence towards black cats on Friday the 13th and Halloween.

If you have a black cat, we suggest you keep him indoors today, just to be on the safe side.
