Here’s an article written by Loup Garou founder Jennifer Mieuli Jameson:


Halloween…my very favorite holiday of the year! Children dressed up as goblins and ghosts traveling door to door like scary salesmen, only they expect to be GIVEN something: a trick, or a TREAT! Treats are more popular these days, much to the chagrin of the parents whose little ones will be hopped up on sugar for days to come after the annual spookfest!

While it’s all fun and frolic for humans, this particular holiday can be difficult for our pets, and most especially for black cats. Long associated with witches and evil, every year at this time, we hear the warnings: shelters won’t adopt out black or orange cats at this time of year, or “keep your felines confined to the indoors, lest they meet with a terrible fate.” There is a risk, to be sure, but more of a risk is that your cat might be met with mischief perpetrated by Halloween pranksters. But the incidence of cats being sacrificed to so-called Satanic ritual is less actuality and more urban myth. While there are some reported cases, there are more times when our sleek black beauties are the victim of rambunctious Halloween revelers.

To be on the safe side, keep your kitty indoors. That way, the only peril he or she will face is the constant ringing of the doorbell as the Night of All Hallows is celebrated~!
