i went out on Halloween one year and saw something that almost made me cry. there was a family who was trying to give away black kittens to complete strangers. when i showed interest in one the told me i could just take him now. i told them to hold on to him and got him a week later. since then i can only feel horror about what might have happened to him. it is not wise to give black kittens away to strangers on Halloween. it is advised that all owners with black cats keep them indoors. now i wonder if that night was the last night for any of his siblings.
