Meanwhile, the yellow and green kitties were heard cursing the A's ;)
Kidding aside, what a great way to get a little attention for the SPCA.
I like the creative "marketing" idea.

Regardless of whatever may be happening in baseball, it's inappropriate to be practically giving away black cats right before Halloween. Even if most of the people have the best intentions, some may not.

A person adopting a cat should have to pay a reasonable fee to ensure that they have thoroughly considered the adoption and intend to care for the cat.

so ak3, paying more 50 dollars instead of 8 ensures a good home? don't satanists have checking accounts?
I think your concern is well meaning, but the amount charged isn't any kind of qualifier.
