For most of the year, the black cat lives a life in the shadows, being shunned at adoption events and unceremoniously blamed for bad luck. Come the time of All Hallows’ Eve, though, this sleek feline gets a chance to shine in the moonlight glare and receive a brief moment of appreciation across the world.

In honor of the witching season, here’s a proud salute to seven of the best black cats you’ll find frolicking around the Internet.



Spot is a formerly feral black cat who lives it up in San Diego. Despite her Instagram bio claiming that she “takes life seriously,” she also seems to be a professional costume-wearer. Here she has become that most ghoulish of Halloween creatures — the fluffy bunny rabbit.



Based in Osaka in Japan, Azuki is a one-eyed, black kitty. Obviously, I’d never actually wish for a cat to only posses one eye, but isn’t there something brilliantly cartoonish about her look? She would be a shoe-in as a character in an animated Miyazaki flick.



More Japanese kitty connections: Here we have Guinness, a champion cat about whom I know very little other than that he apparently has a very sweet tooth. Gingerbread men, consider yourself warned.

Kooty the Owl Cat


What does it take to become an owl-cat? Frankly, I have no idea — and from perusing the self-proclaimed owl-cat Kooty’s Instagram account, I’m not entirely sure she does either, being that this Persian also holds aspirations to being both a “toothless dragon” and a soot sprite from a Studio Ghibli movie.

Jamie and Mylow


Jamie and Mylow are a couple of twin black cats from out of Germany. That’s a double dose of toil and trouble for your Halloween kicks.



Sophie is an aspiring model cat who has become a hit on the social media scene. Marvel at her excellent poise and playful cowboy-mouse accessorizing.



Scooter is a kitty of Irish stock who regularly hams it up for his human’s camera phone. This is his signature sunbeam move — a pose that he loves to delight his followers with.
