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.

Jigger was a stray that was hanging around the neighborhood since late summer 2006. In November 2006, I couldn't bear seeing him out in the cold, so I took him in. He was a sorry sight the first time I noticed him: matted coat, dirty, skinny and had a huge lump on his left hip. Eventually he gained weight because some neighbours were leaving food outside for the strays. Now, he has a shiny coat, gained weight, is playful and is quite friendly. He's about 1 1/2 to 2 years old. He gets along well with the other two, Minou, Cosmo and my dog, Nicky.
