Are black cats really unlucky?

Black cats have commonly been labelled as being witches in disguise and ministers of misfortune. Do black cats really bring about bad luck?

Till date, there has been zero evidence reported regarding the negative labels given to black cats. Sadly, this myth holds strong among the superstitious in community, resulting in black cats being ranked last in adoption figures at rescue organisations around the world.

Interestingly, not all communities view black cats in a negative light. In Egypt, black cats are treated with great respect for their elegance and air of royalty. In Britain, sailors bring black cats onboard their vessels for a safe voyage. In Japan, people believe that black cats ward off evil energy, while bringing love and wealth luck to its owners.

In truth, all cats make great companions with their independent characters, self-grooming nature and low exercise needs compared to dogs.
