Halloween traditionally presents rescue centres with an opportunity to feature black cats looking for homes, as it is a curious fact that black-coated animals generally take longer to find homes. Perhaps it is because of our deep-rooted folklore beliefs such as black cats being witches' familiars or black dogs guarding the borders between this world and the next.

We've all heard of child marriage, trafficking and sexual abuse. Now we can add 'witchcraft exorcism' to the list.
