There is definitely a superstition related to the black cat. Some people think they’re bad luck if they cross your path. However, black cats are simply pawsome, friendly pets that make great furry best friends. Check out our compilation of why we love black kitties.
Black cats are Halloween icons
But they are so much more than spooktacular costumes
Black cats are beautiful…
They can sleep almost anywhere
And they pride themselves into fitting into every sized box
Even clementine boxes!
Black cats are super smart
And will help you study so you can get on their level
Sometimes black cats will sprinkle kitty hair in your food to add love
They may even share their catnip wine
Black cats will help you pack for adventures (with the promise you’ll bring home kitty souvenir toys)
And take care of household chores like cleaning the bathroom while you’re away
They make excellent loaves of bread
But sometimes they forget to put their tongue back in their mouths – blep
Black cats all love sinks. Every single one of them!
And have super cute toe beans
Some even have extra toes!
They match any home décor
And are always ready for a formal occasion
They are great at hide-and-seek
But not so great at helping with the laundry
Black cats are like magic! They instantly make you feel better
They cheer you up
Support your hobbies and interests
Alert you of anything “new”
Celebrate holidays and special occasions
Help provide for the family
Make you laugh
And give you unconditional love
Happy International Black Cat Month!
