13 Adorable Black Cats To Bring You Good Luck This Friday 13th


As the old (and completely untrue) saying goes, "It's bad luck if a black cat crosses your path." On Friday the 13th (and Halloween) the negative hype around black cats and their bringing "bad luck" only intensifies. Unfortunately, this baseless negative association with bad luck can mean that black cats are less likely to be adopted than cats with different fur colors.

With millions of homeless cats in the U.S., many of them black-furred, we think it’s about time for this silly superstition to skedaddle. In fact, did you know that in many cultures across the world, 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, we're bringing you some lucky black cats and celebrating our inkiest of felines looking completely adorable! 

1. This little kitty has a LOT to say about people calling her "bad luck"! 

2. How can something this cute be bad luck?

    I seriously can’t believe the ignorance that still prevails — in 2019!!! This is alien to my background and I do not understand it at all
    Aesthetically, black cats are my favorites — they are the most elegant, stylish, glossy, and beautiful of all cats (though I love every cat, of every species!)

    I make a point of adopting black cats before others.I especially like older black cats even if they come with behaviour problems.(ahem,George).I don’t understand the superstitious nonsense about black cats and it seems when you debunk one superstition to the person throwing them at you they either come out with another one or declare black cats are cruel,ugly,unnatural,etc,all in an attempt to justify the irrational..Black cats are awesome and always match your interior design.
