Black Cats are Pets, Not Props

Updated: Oct 1, 2023

In the Halloween season, black cats are prominent in decorations, often in a menacing pose, or on a witch’s broom. Walk into any store starting in August, and you’ll see black cat props on display as decorations. However, our guests, and your host, know that Black Cats are wonderful pets, not props.

Airing on Fairfax Channel 10, on October 10, 2023 at 8:30pm, we hear from our guests, Tom Bove, Executive Director of Loudoun Community Cat Coalition, and Talia Czapski, Community Relations Manager from Loudoun County Animal Services.

Also a very Special pet guest, kitten Dolly (Parton).

We discuss and debunk Myths such as

Are Black Cats bad luck?

Should we worship black cats, such as the Egyptians who worshipped Bast?

Are Black Cats good luck for sailors?

22 types of Black Cats? The Cat Fanciers’ Association recognizes 22 black cat breeds, each with unique traits and personalities. Some are cuddly, some are quiet, but every black cat deserves to find its fur-ever home.
