Lucky Friday


I hereby declare Friday the 13th as “Lucky Fridays”. Flying in the face of conventional superstition, I go out of my way to pass paths with black cats. Not everywhere are black cats considered a portent of ill omen. A few lesser known facts about black cat superstition.


In Great Britain and in Ireland, black cats are a symbol of good luck.


Black cats are also considered good luck in Japan. Furthermore, it is believed that a lady who owns a black cat will have many suitors.[I wounder if that bears true for men also, having a choice of ladies]


In Germany, some believe that black cats crossing a person's path from right to left, is a bad omen. But from left to right, the cat is granting favorable times.


Maneki Neko (Japanese Lucky Cat) each color has a different meaning. A Black Lucky Cat: gets rid of badlucks.


Although she is not mine I feel fortunate to have Blackie stop by and visit on a regular basis. Not only is she a very beautiful cat, she also smells nice.

  2. I've never been superstitious. I love black cats, they're so sleek! Blackie there is a perfect example! (She really resembles a female Spitty Kitty! that means she's in good company!)

  3. We don't consider black cats bad luck. But then, we mostly ARE black cats.

  4. In the UK shelters have so many black cats needing homes, it seems that the message that black cats are lucky hasn't reached the people who want to adopt :(

    Black cats are wonderful
