13 Adorable Black Cats To Bring You Good Luck This Friday 13th September 13 2019, 12 Comments

If you're superstitious or even just a little stitious, you probably know by now that black cats are a bit like Taylor Swift: they've got a reputation. And unfortunately for black cats, that reputation often precedes them - as undeserved as it may be. As the old saying goes, "It's bad luck if a black cat crosses your path!" And on Friday the 13th, the hype around black cats and their bad luck reputation only intensifies. 

With millions of cats in the U.S., many of them black-furred, we think it’s about time for this silly superstition to skedaddle. In fact, in many cultures, black cats are actually considered good omens, whether it be blessing a ship for safe passage or bringing good luck to a bride on her wedding day. So this Friday the 13th, let’s celebrate our inkiest of felines looking completely adorable!
