It’s Friday the 13th. Are you superstitious?
Whatever you do, don’t buy in to the belief that black cats are bad luck. As far as I can tell, this little house panther has been good for me.
In Japan, black cats are thought to bring suitors to a single woman. Haha. Scout hasn’t been useful in that regard but that’s ok. He’s an awfully good boyfriend on his own.
So go ahead. Cross paths with that black cat. Better yet, adopt one and bring it home with you.
You never know but you might be lucky like me and get to adopt Batcat!
It’s Friday the 13th! Are you superstitious?
Since black cats are often a symbol of bad luck, I want to take a minute to advocate for them. Not only is my little Scout not bad luck, I consider him my lucky charm.
I wonder sometimes what might have happened to him given how cruel people can be to black animals. Black animals are often the last to be adopted in shelters and at higher risk of abuse.
If you have a chance to adopt a black kitty, I hope you’ll do it. All animals deserve a good life.
