Black cat superstitions.
by Slow Joe
You made me smile when you said that chasing black cats from your house will bring bad luck! Somebody ought to tell my old neighbor that.
Ten years back, the lady I was living with and myself had four cats, two of which were solid black the other two tabbies. Whenever one of the black cats hopped over the fence into his garden he would shoo them straight out again. Not so with the tabbies, he’d let them stay and even let them wander into his house!
When he’d come over to our house he’d pet the black cats along with the others, never showed that he had anything against black cats. He must have been carrying those black cat superstitions though; he didn’t like them near him unless they had to be.
A cat is a cat ain’t it? I’ve never believed a black cat will bring bad luck. All cats are good luck charms I think, life is better with a cat than without. The cat I have now, Bella, is a beauty. Bella is not quite solid black, she has a small white patch at the top of her chest, just below her chin.
I try not to be superstitious about anything. If something bad happens, it just happens, that’s life. Whatever it was it was not caused by a cat, black or otherwise.
