Did you know there's a holiday for black cats? We were reminded of this just recently when #NationalBlackCatDay started trending on socials. The result? Our feeds were filled with all manner of black (and black and white) kitties and just in time for Halloween too. Funny, adorable, and occasionally spooky? WE STAN. Here are 17 of our favorite #NationalBlackCatDay posts!
1. "🐈⬛ It's #NationalBlackCatCay! 🐈⬛ Please show off your black/black and white cats in the comments below! Let's show them all lots of love today. 🖤"

3. "This is Violet. I found her in terrible condition. It was so bad, vet said he was not sure she was "viable." Turns out she was, and I named her Violet. She is a sweetheart. Boy cats always go with her out in the yard making sure she is safe. It's sweet."
