Sad but true: No Black Cat Adoptions During Halloween

Yes, apparently this temporary ban on black cat adoptions is common among animal shelters throughout the nation.

Like many shelters around the country, the Kootenai Humane Society in Coeur d'Alene is prohibiting black cat adoptions from now to November 2, fearing the animals could be mistreated in Halloween pranks -- or worse, sacrificed in some satanic ritual.

And although this story has a date line of rural Idaho, my own local "Cats About Town" cat adoption and rescue service has the exact same policy.

I can't believe people can be so sick....then again, in a world full of savagery, maybe I can.

How do Muslims treat cats, I wonder? Surely even the most occultic of Americans can be better than that?
