Black Death cropped (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

poor cats considered demonic and diabolical
once burned alive as evil familiars
along with many an accused medieval witch
leaving more rats to become the real killers

that helped to spread the great pestilence
by carrying the tiny unnoticed fleas with disease
that ultimately killed untold million of souls
and brought the world population to its knees

    Ii’ve read that some animal adoption agencies refuse to adopt out black cats around Halloween because of the cruelties inflicted on them. Bravo to them!
