Black cats. We love ’em. Some fear them, and for all the wrong reasons. These cute little wide eyed mini-panthers, these perfect little killing machines that we love to pick up and kiss have gotten a bad rap over the centuries, and for no good reason. A cat is a cat is a cat, and it might surprise you to learn that in other countries, black cats are tokens of good luck!
Right now the Animal Refuge Center is eager to bring luck, love and laughter into YOUR home with some great cats who wait for someone like you to take them home and love them forever.
In ancient Egypt, all cats (including black ones) were revered. Killing one could result in a death sentence for the offender. Cats were protected by ancient Egyptians because they could kill cobras, scorpions, and other dangerous creatures. Egyptians believed that cats captured the glow of the setting sun in their eyes and kept it safe until morning.
The Japanese also honor black cats as symbols of good luck, and they are viewed as particularly important for single women (some things are just universally true, right?) A black cat is believed to be a lucky lure that will bring many and quality suitors.
Proponents of Feng Shui believe that cats are drawn to harmony. Therefore, a happy cat is the sign of a happy, harmonious home. A figurine of a black cat is often placed in the home, facing north, to ward off evil.
