The history behind National Black Cat Day:

National Black Cat Day 2020

The organization named Cats Protection is responsible for the creation of National Black Cats Day. The origin of this day dates back to 27th October 2011 and since then the day has been celebrated on this particular day. The organization found that the black cats and black-white striped cats had to face discrimination in the adoption process. Black cats are adopted almost one week after in comparison to other colored cats.

What is even more saddening is that not only they face a lower adoption rate but also have a higher rate of being euthanized. Harbingers of doom, evil agents of witches- these sorts of negative connotations are the reason behind them facing harsh illogical consequences. So, National Black Cat Day is the perfect scope for an image-makeover for cat lovers around the world.
