The Black Kitten : Lets Travel Back to the History of the Black Cat

Our few days old black kitten soon to be a black cat. Another pets to feed and additional effort for cleaning.

A black cat is a feline with black fur. It is not a particular breed of cat and may be mixed or of a specific breed. The Bombay, known for its sleek black fur, is an example of a black cat. The all-black pigmentation is equally prevalent in both male and female cats. In some cultures black cats are considered good luck, and in others they are considered bad luck.

Historical associations: Superstition, prejudice, bringer of good or bad luck

The folklore surrounding black cats varies from culture to culture, in Celtic mythology, a fairy known as the Cat Sìth takes the form of a black cat and in Great Britain and in Ireland, black cats are a symbol of good luck. The Scottish believe that a strange black cat’s arrival to the home signifies prosperity. Black cats are also considered good luck in Japan. Furthermore, it is believed that a lady who owns a black cat will have many suitors. However in Western history, black cats have often been looked upon as a symbol of evil omens, specifically being suspected of being the familiars of witches, and so most of western and southern Europe considers the black cat as a symbol of bad luck, especially if one crosses paths with a person, which is believed to be an omen of misfortune and death. In Germany, some believe that black cats crossing a person’s path from right to left, is a bad omen. But from left to right, the cat is granting favorable times.  The gambling world is afraid of black cats: it is believed that if, while traveling to a casino, a black cat crosses a gambler’s road or path, that person should not go to the casino; most players believe that black cats bring bad luck.

However, this things are only beliefs and where not sure if it’s true or myth but one thing is sure cleaning and buying additional food is in order. hehehe! ;-)
