3 Fun facts about black cats

1. Somewhere during the Middle Ages, Europeans got the idea that black cats were associated with witchcraft. The elderly, solitary women who often fed and cared for stray cats were also often (mis) identified as witches and the cats as their conspirators.

2. In Japan, black cats are considered symbols of good luck, especially for single women. Owning a black cat is thought to attract potential suitors.

3.  Black Cat Appreciation Day is August 17th.


  1. I like black cats but these are neat facts thanks for sharing.
