Feline Folklore

We see many images of black cats during Halloween. The idea that black cats are evil comes from the middle ages. This was the time that cats were associated with witchcraft. Superstitions about black cats are one of the most well known fables but they are not the only tales about cats.  Many superstitions about cats are negative, like the idea that a sick person is destined to die if a cat jumps on his bed. There are a few positive ones. It’s been said that if a cat sneezes near a bride on her wedding day, she’ll have a happy life. In the theater, cats are considered good luck. Having one in the audience on opening night is thought to predict a successful play.

Remember, your pets count!
