Black cats have been rumored to be evil or conduits of death since the time of Greek Mythology. They have been associated with black magic and cult rituals. Even into the 1990’s shelters have documented the abuse and mistreatment of black cats more than any other cats brought in. These situations go up around times of supernatural superstitions like Halloween and Friday’s falling on the 13th of the month.
Today is national black cat day, so if one crosses your path… don’t assume you’re about to have a world of bad luck.
