That's just a working title.
Did you know that black cats and dogs are super hard for shelters to re-home?
No-one wants them: they languish in these facilities for years, unwanted, looked over, bypassed.
Superstition may have a part to play, ignorance, or maybe they're just not seen as likeable as a more colourful critter.
I've been thinking about this for a while, I wish that message could reach other pagans and witches, people who won't have the kinds of superstitious or ignorant feelings about black animals. Black cats and dogs do represent a part of our folklore and mythic history. They are woven into our stories. It would be great if more pagans and witches were aware that we could advocate for these unwanted critters in our community (I use that term loosely).
Do you have a black cat or dog?
Have you had a black cat or dog?
Would you be more likely to intentionally adopt a black cat or dog being aware that no-one else wants them?
Please let other pagans know that black cats and dogs need advocates, and homes.
Me, I love black cats. My first cat was a black cat. I'll never forget her.
Also please feel free to post pictures of black cats and dogs!
