With Halloween nearly upon us, we though this was a good time to write about black cats.

Some people genuinely feel that black cats are unlucky. Most of Europe seems to think that the presence of one brings bad luck and they have even been associated with witches. Black cats are said to be a sign that your future is cursed or things will take a downturn. Is this just superstitious nonsense or myth? Maybe…….

On the other side of the coin, sailors and pirates have long associated the sighting of a black cat as good news or luck, often thinking it will lead to prosperity. In the UK if a black cat walks towards someone, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it.

We think the truth lies somewhere in the middle! You probably make your own luck, good or bad and all the black cats in the world are just going about their business, so “leave us out of this one!”

Cats bring joy into our lives, loving us when it suits them, sometimes ignoring us and missing us when we go away.

Talking of going away, it’s nearly Christmas, so if you haven’t made your last minute arrangements for the holiday season for your black beauty, please give us a call or get in touch and we will do our best to fit you in!

Stay lucky!
