Halloween

Hi Courtney,

Of course you are entitled to your opinion and, as it happens, my opinion is also that black cats don't bring bad luck.

I don't think that you should consider yourself evil just because you and your mom were born on a particular day though.

Thank you for sharing your story with us.

A blessing

by Riley Thompson
(Canada)

I'm eighteen and my black cat came to me about a week before Christmas. I was watching a movie and i heard meowing out my front door... i had the the door open because i was having a cigarette at the time.

I looked out the door and saw a small black kitten. When i walked outside, it ran under the my car. After about fifteen minutes of trying to catch him, he finally came towards me.

He was only about 4 weeks old and looked like he was outside for a while. It was one of the coldest days of the year so i had no choice but to keep him.

As soon as i got him into the house, he began to purr and immediately took a liking to me. Ever since that night, he has been at my feet every second.

I contacted all the local vets and humane societies but nobody seemed to be looking for a black kitten.

I have had him for almost a year now and i feel like he was a serious blessing. My life has begun to put itself back together and i have never felt a connection to an animal like i do with my black cat, Dopey.

He is a very nervous cat, but when he is around me, he is so affectionate and so loving. He seems to be scared of everyone but me, even after a year, my mom and brother are not able to pick him up...he just runs away. He is one of the sweetest cats i've ever come across and he has such an amazing personality.

Black Cats are not bad luck...just like any other cat they are great companions and beautiful animals.

You said it right and you said it well -
"Black Cats are not bad luck...just like any other cat they are great companions and beautiful animals."

Thank you for taking Dopey in, giving him a home and care. In return you have his love and affection, a blessing indeed.

I have 2 black cats!

by lyn cash
(raleigh)

i have 2 fabulous black cats, oscar and mr.ree. one is felv+ so they are housed seperately. the other was at the local shelter for over 3 months.

black cats are often passed over when people adopt a pet, for a more flashy coat. but let me encourage black cat adoptions! both my guys are sweet,interested in everything i do, affectionate and "personality plus."

i'm so glad i have them and they are wonderful additions to our family.oscar lives with precious, a felv+ calico friend, and mr.ree lives with his brothers,captain camo and snaps, and his sister,hilda. i love all my cats, but i do think black cats are extremely affectionate and sweet.

i have had several over the years,and always find them very people-oriented and intelligent. a black cat in a shelter somewhere is waiting to be A BEST FRIEND to YOU!

Sad that black cats are often passed over.
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Lyn,

Thank you very much indeed for telling us all about your large family of cats, they all sound fabulous.

Yes, it is very sad that black cats are often passed over. I've always believed that this was due to peoples misplaced superstitions, but it may also sometimes be, as you say, because of their lack of a colorful coat. Personally I think black cats look great, all sleek and mysterious, but we all have our own tastes.

I like your phrase, " there's a black cat waiting to be a best friend to you. "

The History of Black Cats

The History of black cats

There is an everyday myth found in the modern world, Black Cats are nothing but bad luck. I beg to differ. If you see a black cat staring at you just think cats tend to stare, so do humans just think the black cat was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, no harm, and no foul.

To finish this paragraph off, I have had a black cat, and along with it, no bad luck. So don't be eying one when it walks by you.

Here kitty kitty
by: Anonymous

I also agree that black cats are awesome I thinkthey have the best personalities I have owned a black cat all my life. I adore them. And I can say I'm not an unlucky person. Things just happen there is no reason behind why it is life and sh*t happens. If I were to say there was an evil cat it would be an all white one but that's because I've never been around a friendly one.

I agree with you . . .
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Emily,

I agree with you entirely.

Black cats have got a completely undeserved reputation. They are cats just like any others.

But humans have got to blame 'bad luck' on something and the poor black cat is one of the things that gets that blame.

Anyone who has shared their life with a black kitty, as you have, knows that they aren't unlucky at all.

Thank you very much for your submission.

My Loving Black Cat

by BreannaLee
(Commercity Colorado )

Well I have an amazing black cat I named him twilight (not cuz of the movie) and he is SOOO loving and adorable I love him to death(: he puts a smile on my face when I come home from school and see him.

He would sometimes lay on my stomach and it's really cute. He's not a bad cat at all really it's just some people think of black cats as bad luck but I Don't believe that :P

Hi Breanna,

Thank you for your submission. I think Twilight is a great name for a black cat. He does sound like a cute fellow.

Black cats, bad luck? No way. but you know that.
