Black cats bring security stability and good fortune.

by Brandéjiah Hardwick
(Fairfield CA , USA)

I've always been lightly superstitious of black cats living here in the u.s. . For the past two weeks , black cats have been lingering by me .

Before I began noticing them daily , ii was very unstable and worrying about providing for my seven month old son , Yurhiiness. Since they've been around I've been blessed with my own apt and haven't been stressing about money .

I did a little research and have found many story's where black cats have been thought to bring stability , fortune , or a sign that my family is guarded by a higher spirit . So far , this has been truth and a blessing to me . I just wanted to share my story to let others know it's not good to believe what you hear . BELIEVE what you see and know .

All I've seen with black cats is security stability and good fortune ") luckily , I've seen a black cat wondering near my new apt which ii was hoping for .

...in response
by: Brandéjiah

....the main reason i came to believe black cats were a sign of luck for myself is cause i seen a black cat every single day for at least two weeks when things began looking up for me . Every day , different times places Nd cities . May have just been a sign to stop believing in luck . Only god knows.

Being in touch
by: Katy

Hi I'm also happy for you that things have taken a turn for the better. Like Larry I also think that black cats are the same as other cats. But I also think that all cats are special. The Egyptians had a goddess called Baast who was the goddess of the home and her shape was of a cat. I think that also if you are observant you see that many other living things around us quite often interact with us for our good.
Lots of birds visit my garden because of my old apple tree. Once I was waiting at a bus stop near home and a robin came and perched on a fence at eye level close to me. I stepped away from where I had been and was talking to it. It was quite unafraid and then the bus came, too fast, out of control and mounted the kerb where I had been standing a moment before. The robin flew away and I was safe.

For you, black cats are lucky.
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Brandéjiah,

Congratulations on your new apartment and for no longer stressing about finance.

How much of a part did black cats play in this? Well my own view is that back cats are just like any other cats, neither lucky or unlucky. But if you want to believe that they have brought you stability and fortune . . . then for you they are lucky.

It's a great thing to have a cat around. They are beautiful animals.

Thank you very much indeed for sharing your story with us Brandéjiah.

My Favorite Little Black Kitty!

In June, my 15 year old dachshund was put down. I was devastated and cried myself to sleep every night. Exactly a month after he died, my family was at my grandfathers house.

My aunt went outside to get something from her car and she heard loud meowing. She thought it was in the woods, so she came running inside and told us what she had heard. We all ran outside, and heard the meowing. We all were panicking because the meowing sounded as if the cat was.

We looked in the woods but there wasn't a cat there, we found out that the cat was in the old wellhouse. We thought it was stuck.

The weather for the next day was expected to be in the 90s, so we were afraid that the cat was going to die. We tried to get the kitten out that night but we couldn't. Bright and early the next morning, all of us got up and went back down to my grandfather's house. We found a little, little, little small ball of black fur curled up with the bluest eyes you have ever seen!

We put him in a little box. He hissed and meowed. We took him home and he continued to hiss and meow at us! By the 3rd day that we had had him, he became so sweet and cuddly. We all became attached to him. He is now 4 months old and is my favorite black kitty! He is so sweet now and I am glad to have him!

Olie, my black cat

Olie

Olie

Olie
King Olie and his brother Sir Thomas

i found Olie, on a walk when he was a kitten, not much older than 2 months. he is as black as he can get. his brother is pure white.

i brought them home together and they have both been a joy. but Olie is one of a kind. i have fibromyalgia and Olie seems to know exactly where to lie down next to me so that it will help me control the pain. i have 4 cats, but Olie, is the one who stays closest to me. He comes to me when called if he is outside, and always has a sweet greeting for me when he answers.

what a blessing he is to me. I hope and pray that more people know the love and joy that a black cat can bring.

Cats can be such a comfort.
by: Anonymous

I do not know much about your condition but I do know about pain and I do know about the comfort that a cat can give. There are many reports of cats knowing when they are needed and more and more doctors recognize that pets can help. It has been shown that people with pets are less prone to stress than people without. I too am convinced that cats help with physical pain as well. Olie is a sweet little cat I am pleased he is a comfort to you.

Fine pair of brothers
by: Larry (editor)


Hello,

Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful photos of Olie and Sir Thomas with us and for telling us your story.

They are a fine pair of brothers and must indeed be a joy to you. It's wonderful that Olie helps with your pain, cats can be a blessing in so many ways.

Yes, as you rightly say, a black cat can bring love and joy just like any cat, because they are indeed just like any cat.

Correction - Black Cats Crossing.

You wrote: "Live in Germany and you will probably believe that black cats crossing your path from right to left, is a bad omen. But from left to right, and the cat is granting favorable times for you."

The opposite is true. A cat crossing your path from left to right is bad luck, while a cat from right to left is good luck. 'Von rechts nach link - Glueck bringt's. Von links nach rechts - jetzt pechts.

------------------

Hello.

Thank you. I don't know if my original sources of information were incorrect or perhaps I misread them. I think the later is more likely.

My knowledge of the German language is zero, so I searched for the phrase using Google translate which is not very good but all the sites it found agreed with you.

I will alter that information on the Black Cats page.

Thanks again for pointing it out.

seventeen
by: Mool

Every time I see a black cat I count to seventeen in my head. This I know makes me touched, superstitions are bad enough but this one is mine alone, can you say crazy.

Done it ever since I don't know when, don't know why don't know what started it. Just inside my head, thank golly not out loud or they would come and strap me into a restraining jacket. Crazy.

Left, right, up or down!
by: Anonymous

It doesn't matter to me, left to right or right to left. A cat ain't going to give you luck only you can do that.

I think all animals should be respected and not treated as lucky charms. If things are not going your way don't blame it on a cat, change yourself!

Black Cats May Give You Signs.

by Emanuel
(Gaithers MD USA)

I was driving on a dark rainy night and as I approach the curb I notice a black cat with two red glittering eyes was sitting on a step of a house on the left by the side of the road.

When the cat saw my car approaching the cat leaped from the step across the road. I immediately applied my brake and stopped. The cat stood under the left front wheel of my car and made a big screaming noise like meawwwwwwwww.

I thought that the cat had plunge to its death so I stool there for awhile. After the cat stopped screaming I continued on my journey and was afraid. I believe that the cat was an evil spirit.

Black cats not wicked!
by: Lon

Why do people think that animals can be evil? C'mon, animals kill for food or defense, they do it in order to live. They don't kill or hurt to be wicked, it's people that do that.

Why be afraid of a cat, whats a cat going to do, scratch you at the worst. Be scared of 'gaters or snakes, but they ain't evil.

T had a black cat, well he was most all black, some white on his chest. No bad luck with him, he wasn't wicked or evil or anything. Wise up, it's people you need to be afraid of not black cats.

Its people that are evil (some of them.)

Evil Spirit.
by: Larry (editor)

Hi Emanuel,

The cat was not an evil spirit, the cat was a cat.

I know the cat was not hit by your car otherwise you would have said (and you would have got the poor creature medical attention,) but that near miss must have scared the heck out of her or him. That's why it was meowing.

Would you have thought the cat to be an evil spirit if it had been another color?

The reason the black cat dashed across the road was probably because it was spooked by the approach of your car.

Thank you very much for sharing your tale Emanuel and don't worry about evil spirits.
