Pet Tip

Black Cats – Pet tip 170

You are walking down the street and a black cat crosses your path. What do you do? Whether you dismiss it or not, many people think of it as some kind of a bad omen. Black cats and bad luck is a superstition that has lived on even in modern society. Past events, and present misconceptions of these cats keep this unfortunate stereotype alive.

Black is a colour that often brings an emotional response. What do you think of when you imagine this colour? Night, darkness, boring, no colour, dark, evil, scary are all common (and generally negative) words to describe black. This negative connotation of the colour black also applies to black cats. The portrait of the black cat as an omen of bad luck began with accusations of witchcraft and witch-hunts many years ago. It was believed that black cats had magical powers that allowed them to transform themselves into witches.

Rothy was adopted by my friend/roommate (now boyfriend) July 16, 2000 and he lived the first 6 monthes of his life as an indoor-only cat in downtown Ottawa in a house with a huge group of 19-21 year olds. He was (and still is) the cutest kitten I have ever seen and had the cutest personality! He used to get really hyper and go sliding across the coffee table and fall off, and while washing the dishes he'd come running and 'latch onto' my back with his claws and climb until he was up on my shoulder (he loved to watch). The strangest habit he had was nibbling on my earlobes while kneading my neck and purring! He ended -up being adopted my my parents in October 2000, as became an indoor-outdoor cat living in the rural Ottawa area (Munster). He came home one day in April 2001 with a broken leg (we have no idea how it happened), but luckily it healed perfectly. He went to play in the back field with the other cats on the morning of October 24, 2002.........and never came home again! I have tried EVERYTHING to try to find him, I even called animal bylaw to be 100% sure he wasn't hit on the road, and went searching 3-4 km into the back fields accepting that I may be looking for a dead body. I went to the Ottawa Humane Society every second day for just over a year looking for him and we still put posters up in the nearby towns. He is/was my perfect angel cat and I miss him more than anything!! I just hope that wherever he went that he's happy and not suffering (whether he's dead or has been adopted by another family). Rothy I love you and miss you!!
