Work of the Week: "Cats Square" by Joyce Harris

Date: Sep 13, 2019

It’s Friday the 13th! Today holds much trepidation for the superstitious, as do black cats like the one depicted in this week’s Work of the Week, Cats Square by Joyce Harris. 

Cats, particularly black cats, have long had a troublesome reputation, which is often traced back to their connection with witchcraft. To this day, black cats in animal shelters are less likely to be adopted than their lighter-coloured compatriots because of this negative connotation.
