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.
Dave Kaminski, who runs the website SixCatsOnedude, is the proud parent of six rescue cats, three of them black. To help combat the negative stereotypes surrounding black cats, he put together an infographic on the 17 reasons to own a black cat. The benefits are based on actual science, plus his 40 years worth of experience in living with black cats.
It shows that owning a black cat (or more accurately having one own you), has many advantages. Everything from health, to love, to house chores and even how people view you. You can check out all 17 reasons to own a black cat in the infographic below:
