On Sunday we held our last Spooky Tour and Hunt at the GSPCA with a group of 7 scary little monsters and witches.

Throughout half term we have held special tours at the GSPCA which included a quiz, meeting some of the more unusual animals, fancy dress and a very spooky room filled with prizes.

All the young monsters were accompanied by their parents and all had a great afternoon with yesterdays being the latest so was set in the dark to add to the spookiness of the event.

Black cats have had a mixed reaction for centuries with many people believing them a bad omen even in 2016.

Despite each year at the GSPCA and many other charities promoting black cats in need of homes they continue to be the main colour of cat that is often skipped by when new adoptees are looking to adopt a cat.

Today is National Black Cat Day, a day to raise awareness of the many black and white cats waiting for homes in rehoming centres.

Black cats have had a mixed reaction for centuries with many people believing them a bad omen even in 2015.

Today is National Black Cat Day, a day to raise awareness of the many black and white cats waiting for homes in rehoming centres.

At the GSPCA it takes on average much longer for a black cat to find a home

This Halloween there are black cats in many homes in Guernsey, but the GSPCA have more black cats than any other at the Animal Shelter.

At the GSPCA 50% of the cats are black or black and white that are in for rehoming, welfare reasons or stray.
