9 Signs Your Cat May Actually Be Thackery Binx

In this world, there are cat people and there are dog people. The two often have their arguments as to why their preferred pet is better, and the failure rate to convert someone is usually around 99.99%. However, when the weather starts to get a bit colder, the winds begin to change, and the leaves start to fall, there is one thing cat lovers and dog lovers can all agree on …

Thackery Binx is the greatest pet of all time.


With the spirit of a centuries old, well-meaning, kind young man, and the dexterity of … well … a cat, Thackery is the perfect companion in good times and times when you are being chased around your hometown by three sisters who are looking for revenge and children. If you happen to find a black cat this Halloween and decide to take it in as your pet, you should look for these signs to see if your new BFF is actually Thackery Binx.
