Today is Friday the 13th and what better way to celebrate than to honour some gorgeous black cats! Black cats are amazing luck and if one crosses your path it means that you were fortunate enough to see one! So take a second to bask in its beauty and remind yourself of how lucky you are! I happen to have a black cat of my own whom I absolutely adore. He’s got a quirky personality, thinks he’s the boss of me and writes in his personal diary about trying to take over the world. Here are some really great pics of my black beauty named Sebastieno…affectionately known as Seabass.
It depends on what part of history we’re talking about but cats were considered both lucky and unlucky. Ancient Egyptians hailed cats as gods and cats have never forgotten this. In ancient Egypt it was a capital offence to hurt, harm or kill a cat and people who did this would be punished severely. Ancient Egyptians praised cats for controlling vermin and their ability to kill venomous snakes such as cobras, and the cat quickly became a symbol of poise and grace.
In Norse mythology, Freya was the goddess of marriage. She rode in a carriage that was pulled by two cats and the goddess is represented by a grey cat. Christians decided that Freya was a witch and a Pagan and her cats were seen as agents of Satan. Obviously the Christians saw the cats as unlucky and evil.
When soldiers came back from the Crusades, they brought black rats with them, (that caused the Great Plague and killed millions) and suddenly cats were needed again. This improved their image greatly.
Throughout the ages, people have always thought that cats possessed psychic abilities. Cat charms such as on a pendant have been thought to bring good luck and to help the wearer develop their own psychic potential.
There are many more stories and beliefs about cats being good luck and I tend to agree…afterall, a certain black cat crosses my path everyday.
