Just in time for Halloween, it’s National Black Cat Day!


(CNN) — Everyone loves the underdog, but what about the undercat? It’s time to celebrate one of the most oft-overlooked felines: black cats!

These dark creatures of the night captivate our imaginations around Halloween time, but they’re really not creepy. That’s just an old superstition.

Black cats are just as loving and affectionate as any other kitty. Their unlucky reputation helps keep them among the least adopted cats at shelters.

We’re hoping to buck that trend and show a black cat some love! You can dance to Janet Jackson’s “Black Cat” — but your pet might get scared if you set off Black Cat firecrackers.
