17 Reasons to Own a Black Cat

In the animal world, cats have the dubious honor of garnering the most superstitions. And it’s black cats in particular that are the main focus of many of these superstitions.

For instance, a black cat crossing your path in moonlight means you will become sick. A black cat appearing at a funeral forecasts the death of another family member. A black cat walking away from you takes away all of your luck. And of course, the numerous associations between black cats and witchcraft.

Because of these endless superstitions, many animal shelters suspend the adoption of black cats during the month of October. And all cat owners are generally advised to keep their cats indoors both before and on Halloween.

  1. Sometimes, black cats have black claws, which may make the claws not so easy to take care of. About half of our feral colony was black at its height; at one point, Parker had the only pink nose among the black cats, grey cats, and black-and-white cats with black noses.

    • I’m glad to hear you love black cats too, Jenna. They’re simply the coolest, but, of course, I think all animals are pretty cool. ) Thanks for taking the time to check out my post. Come back again, ya hear?

  2. I did own one 10 years ago. She died from a impacted bowel. She continued to eat and everything. I can’t bring myself to get another black cat. She was my world.
