If you have black furred pets, do you hide them at Halloween?

esp the cats, but I hear the black dogs are also starting to get targeted.

We keep our kitty inside

  • Yes, we used to keep boo in the house... There were always "missing" kitties that fit her description around halloween. we had some insane religious nut jobs living in proximity- she believed that the cats were possessed, and would trap them, I don't want to know what she did to them after that. She also trapped squirrels and used the humane traps to drown them... sick fucking woman.

  • Never thought or worried about it.

  • In our area no one cares at all whether there's a black cat out on Halloween or not - I think at least. I've never considered locking her up. Now this is a new one...!

  • I heard about this years ago. Our cats were inside anyway but I kept the black dog we had inside just in case. I can't believe anyone would do something so sick but I know it has happened.

  • Wow, never heard of black pets being targeted at Halloween time! We have two black dogs and have never had any problems with anybody trying to nab them.

  • Are people mean to them? I never heard of such a thing!

  • I had a black cat we kept inside the weeks leading up to it since there was a rash of black cats going missing around that time of year in prep, not just on Halloween day when I had her.

  • My dog is completely black, but we just moved, so maybe I should

  • Targeted? For what? I have a black dog..

  • I have a black dog, and we keep him inside at Halloween, but I think he might be freaked out by all of the strange activity on Halloween anyway.
