In the NJ Digital Newspaper office, we enjoy finding content from NJ’s historical newspapers in Chronicling America for special days. Saturday August 17 is Black Cat Appreciation Day, so we took a spin through the papers for images of black cats.
Next are two advertisements for Black Cat hosiery from the Chicago-Kenosha Hosiery Company.
Finally, a black cat photo.
We think the cat looks pretty friendly and is getting into the spirit of the celebration as it struts with its tail raised!
