Black Cat Superstition Is So Very Wrong.
by Caroline Mead Friday.
I cannot understand all the hoo hah and superstition (and worse) about black cats, I have read and heard some terrible nonsense. I have had four black cats including my lovely boy that I have now, wonderful animals all of them.
My life is the same as anyone else, it has its good and bad moments, if something bad happens to me that's just life, I do not blame it on my cat. My cat is one of the best things in my life, he is certainly a friend, a comforter, someone who actually listens and makes life very worthwhile.
If you ever decide to get a cat for a pet I'll give you a tip, go to a rescue shelter and choose a black cat. There will be at least one there and probably many, people don't pick black cats, their ridiculous superstitions cause them to pass the cat over. Don't you pass the cat over, choose him or her and you will have picked the sweetest and the best I guarantee it.
We have just gotten through Halloween, I held my boy indoors for the days leading to it, he did not like it one bit but it was the best thing to do. There are crazy people, who will harm a cat simply because it is black. Halloween gives them an excuse to chase cats or throw things at them or worse. Stupid cruel and ignorant nonsense.
It is not a harmless superstition like not walking under ladders or throwing spilled salt over your shoulder. The stupid beliefs cause ignorant people to actually harm cats and that's not right!
