Adopt a Black Cat for Friday the 13th
It wouldn't be Friday the 13th without a black cat. Obviously adopting a black cat because of its coat won't actually have any jurisdiction over your luck (good OR bad), but I think it's safe to say that adopting your new best friend counts as good luck! And if you're already looking for a new furry addition to your home, this is the perfect time to give in and adopt one of the many black cats at Stevens Swan Humane Society.
According to John Treen at Stevens Swan, they have over 200 cats at the moment, but one black cat in particular named Triss really deserves a place to call home.
Triss has been at the shelter for three years now, which makes her the longest feline resident. Treen said in an email and there's no doubt about it: Triss has "Catitude." She does what she wants when she wants.
"She has no problem kicking dogs out their bed behind our desk," Treen said. "We've seen dogs of all breeds and sizes back down to her. If you like cats with a little extra spunk then come meet Triss."
Triss' adoption fee has been sponsored, but Treen said her new owner will definitely need to set aside a napping spot on the couch for her and buy her a comfy bed. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
There are other black cats at the shelter, as well, including a pair of adorable black kittens. You can find more information about Triss and all of the shelter's animals on their website or visit them Tuesday - Friday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
