Isn't it the other way around? Black cats are meant to be lucky.

I don't think they do. I think they are usually sweethearts. Black and white cats have the best personality IMO.

I agree with you. I do not think that black cats bring misfortune. When the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, they brought with them a devout faith in the Bible. They also brought a deepening suspicion of anything deemed of the devil. Comprised of Englanders and Europeans, these pilgrims were a deeply suspicious group. They viewed the black cat as a companion, or a familiar to witches. Anyone caught with a black cat would be severely punished or even killed. They viewed the black cat as part demon and part sorcery.

I don't think black cats mean anything at all..its just a cat..personally, I would love to own a black cat..they seem so much more serious than other types..I've been around them lots of times and nothing bad has taken place..I always wondered where that whole myth of bad luck and black cats came from..

No way... I don't think black cats bring unfortune. Maybe if someone believes it strong enough, then misfortune will come their way since they wish it. I've had a black cat for the past 3-4 years. My cat hasn't caused any misfortune for me. lol

they were associated with witches back in the dark ages so i think that's why they have today such a bad reputation. me and my boyfriend finally agreed we're gonna get a cat this year, and i kinda liked the idea of having a black one, but he refuses. anyway i don't think they bring bad luck

I agree with you. My husband thinks the same way as you boyfriend. I hope you find a very loverly cat. When you like the idea of a black cat you can take one with a little bit of white. Even when it is one hear. They say that that is enough to break the bad luck off the cat.

Well, black cats aren't so dangerous. But we have many tales abot them. So for example witch will use black cat for some magic activities. One other thing is cat will sleep on the place with more negative energy.

some people say that black cats are bad luck, but i think that's silly. they're really only bad luck if they cross your path. if that happens, you need to turn around and not take that path, or wait for that cat or another black cat to cross your path in the opposite direction. I think it might also work if you have a white cat cross your path in the same direction that the black cat did - or is that a white dog? horse?
