Halloween will be here soon, and that means many shelters will not adopt out black cats. Sounds crazy? I thought so too. However, when I wrote about Black Dog Syndrome, many of the shelter workers I interviewed told me that from mid October to just past Halloween, the black cats that are up for adoption are not released to the public.

I mentioned in my Black Dog Syndrome story, that at first I thought all of this was a hoax. It just sounded too ridiculous to be true. Unfortunately Black Dog Syndrome does exist, and so does Black Cat Syndrome. I interviewed Dusty Rainbolt, vice president of the Cat Writers Association and author of Cat Wrangling Made Easy.
