The myths and supersitions about cats. - October 27th 2018, 07:14 PM

Many people enjoy the companionship of their beloved cats, but it didn't always used to be this way. Cats used to be frowned upon due to the different myths and superstitions surrounding them.

While the times have changed, some cats, particularly black ones, are still mistreated and extra caution has to be taken in effort to protect them. This is especially true around Halloween; October is black cat awareness month.

Read this article to learn more about some of the myths and superstitions surrounding cats. Are you superstitious about cats?

When I look into the eyes of an animal
I do not see an animal
I see a living being
I see a friend
I feel a soul.

They whispered to her
you cannot withstand the storm
she whispered back
i am the storm.

Wow, I knew black cats were associated with witches but didn't realise the extent of this!

I am so sorry for your pet, maybe she is already preparing to leave. Usually cats and dogs do just that. Passed on his own experience and it is very difficult.

Same here! Interesting article, Cassie; thank you for sharing!

I had a black cat once, but he had a little white spot on his chest so he wasn't totally black.

I had a silver tabby cat but in regards to black cats, I've never been superstitious about them.
