People around the world often believe that black cats bring bad luck but we think they are absolutely purrfect! There are plenty of superstitions surrounding black cats and because of this black cats are statistically less likely to be adopted from shelters than their colorful counterparts. For instance, in the Middle Ages, cats were thought to have a close link to black magic and witchcraft. In fact, cats were thought to be witches in disguise! But not all places in the world feel this way, for instance in Scotland, a black cat arriving at your home is believe to bring prosperity. In Britain and Japan if a black cat crosses your path it is considered good luck. In ancient Egypt, black cats were considered good luck, protected you from disease, and gave a boost to your fertility.
So next time you adopt a new furry feline, please consider giving a black cat a forever home. If you’re still having second thoughts about black cats, try spending some time with one and they’ll be sure to change your mind!
