Please keep it inside this Halloween! Reposting from Tumblr for a wider audience..
"Please keep your black cat out of any street facing windows during the month of October!
Any windows that are not facing a secured yard are not really safe, especially in more populated areas.
not only do people like to throw things at the windows in an attempt to hurt them, there have been cases of people opening or breaking windows to steal the cat.
Keep all cats out of windows if you want to go the better safe than sorry approach!
Black cats are the biggest victims of Halloween inspired cruelty. If you need proof, just look at how many shelters stop adopting out black cats around Halloween.. it is to prevent them being adopted as props for parties or flesh to batter and bruise because our fellow human beings simply aren't all good.
Be careful with ALL your animals this Halloween. With black cats, take special care, but as with all holidays that have masses of strangers roaming the streets after dark for any reason, get your pets indoors. If you can't, hide them. Tarp your ponds, keep the outside dogs and cats in, bring in the turtles and tortoises, if it is alive keep it out of view. Because some malicious soul might decide it would be more fun to make them dead."
My kitties are indoor cats and not black but I have had a black cat before and I can tell yah people do treat them differently sometimes. I am almost obsessive with my kittysafety because they're my family <3
That being said there are some FUCKED up cat haters out there that will do horribly malicious things to felines. I have never met a person who -actively- (let me stress that word) hates cats who I haven't found later to be a horrible person. As soon as someone shows that attitude with me its GTFO my life RIGHT NOW. Also there is someone serial BEHEADING cats and leaving their dismembered parts around Toronto lately, thats where I LIVE D8< a special place in the afterlife waits for that fucker.
That being said! Take extra care this Halloween guys. Don't let anyone messed up ruin it for you!

I have two black cats, Boo and Gaz, four cats in total. I have had people, even when it wasn't Halloween, threaten to harm them. Don't take this warning lightly, please protect your animals.
