• If a black cat sneezed near a bride on her wedding day, her marriage was predicted to be a long and happy one.
• Fishermen’s wives believed that black cats would keep their husbands safe while at sea. Black cats were considered do valuable that they were often stolen.
“Black cats have unfairly suffered from negative reputations for too long. Unfortunately, potential adopters tend to overlook these beautiful cats because their dark color makes them less noticeable than their brightly-colored counterparts. It’s time for the black cat’s luck to change! We have so many in need of a loving home.”
– Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of the San Diego Humane Society
