RSPCA busts nine myths around mysterious moggies this Halloween

Happy Halloween! What better way to celebrate than to decode the myths and mysteries surrounding our feline friends? 

Throughout history cats have been renowned for being mysterious creatures, so much so that the RSPCA hopes to debunk the nine most common myths. 

The RSPCA hopes that getting to the bottom of some of these myths will help people to gain a better understanding of our cats and create more homes for the high numbers in animal centres.

Whilst some myths about cats can be traced as far back as medieval times, others are merely old wives tales that are a simple case of scare-mongering. For example, some people believe that cats should have a litter of kittens before being spayed or that cats pose a risk to pregnant women or babies - all of which are completely untrue.
