Black Friday has become a traditional holiday on its own, with eagle-eyed shoppers looking for all the best deals available. Perhaps one place you wouldn’t expect to find some crazy discounted prices is at an animal shelter, but that’s exactly what happened this year!

Seattle Humane is an animal shelter that tried to convicted shoppers to adopt an abandoned kitten rather than waste their money on the latest discounted goods. On 25 November, 2016, the shelter was offering free adoptions for all black cats that needed a loving family.
