The Black Lives Matter crusade has been gaining momentum over the past couple of months -- with good reason. There is just one other kind of black life that should also matter.

Black Cat

Black cats carry the heavy weight of "racism" as well. They have long been vilified for their color that has no foundation in reality. They are not bad luck and they aren't associated with witchcraft. They suffer more at the hands of humans than any other color of cat. Just sayin'.

Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day!
