National Black Cat Day!

 

August 17 is the day to celebrate your favorite black cat!

Black cats have a reputation for being “bad luck.”  Back in the Middle Ages, black cats were associated with witches and evil doings.  Even today some people believe it is bad luck to have a black cat cross their path!

Did you know… ?
England’s King Charles I had a “good luck” black cat, and the day after the cat died,
the king was arrested for treason.

Many people with black cats will tell you the opposite is true and that black cats are very sweet and intelligent.  Maybe that’s why despite their reputation, black cats are seen all over pop culture!  My favorite black cats are Berlioz, from The Aristocats and Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service.  Who’s your favorite black cat?
