October Cat Holidays 2016.
October is special month this year with much to celebrate and be aware of.
On personal note: Our dear Merlin’s birthday was posted today at the CatBlogosphere. It’s actually on Oct. 2 and he’ll no doubt blog about at Mondays With Merlin about it if he’s still alive. Knowing him, he’ll probably blog not matter what.
We’re excited to share an entire month of black cat-related events and posts. We will celebrate Black Cat Day on Oct 27 but one day is not enough. Our Black Cats Tell All community group on Facebook will host giveaways and other fun for our inaugural Black Cat Awareness Month. A major event for October, 2017 is planned.
This year, share black cat photos, funny videos and positive stories at our Facebook pages, other groups across all social media and bloggers. We will be very active on Instagram with many of our BCTA contributors. Tag us #catwisdom101 or #blackcatstellall so we can share or like yours. Together we can raise awareness and shelter adoption rates. Yes, black are amazing and adoptable. There no better time than October, the Halloween month to find endless teachable moments and less evil looking cat decor.
We have BCTA tribe members from all over the world and it’s fitting since our book, Black Cats Tell All: True Tales and Inspiring Images mushroomed into a global melting pot of over 70 amazing black cats. The BCTA nonprofit project is taking on a life of its own with a small delay in publication. The cover design is stunning. Stay tuned!
We’re not posting more than twice a week this month but you won’t want to miss our “feel good” Feral Cat Day post on Oct. 16. I volunteer as a TNR expert at the Feral Friends Network of Alley Cat Allies. All I’m going to say is: expect the unexpected.
