This Issue Published: Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Next Issue: Tuesday, November 5, 2013



This special holiday issue of PandEcats.com is all about Halloween and black cats. Articles range from how black cats first became associated with Halloween to understanding the black cat's coat and grooming it for show.

And, in the spirit of a holiday characterized by "tricks" or "treats", we also include an article that explains how the new USDA/APHIS regulation will affect the hobby cat breeder and how they sell their pet kittens . . .

Happy Hallow's Eve, Kitty-lovers!
