It’s National Black Cat Appreciation Day, Gigglers! From Salem on Sabrina the Teenage Witch to Luna on Sailor Moon to Sanrio’s Chococat, today we’re celebrating some of the coolest cats around — and we couldn’t be more excited.

Black cats get a bad rap: Often considered a symbol of bad luck, they are reportedly the least-adopted and most euthanized feline in the United States. But these cats deserve just as much loving as their differently-colored counterparts (counterpurrts?) — and it’s time we give them a little more credit. Let’s be real: If black cats are cool enough to hang with the baddest witches around, then they’re cool enough to hang with us.

Here are just a few adorable felines to get your appreciation going on this glorious, underrated holiday.
