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? 


3. This lovely lady wants to show off her delicate murder mittens:



4. These miniature voids have the CUTEST bleps.



5. They can change colors in the sun!

    Thank you! Loved this! 13 is actually my lucky number…even have a Roman numeral tat ‘XIII’…I have a black cat – his name is SHADOW – I adopted him when he was 2 yrs old back in August 2014…Shame the people who had him ABUSED him! Broke some of his teeth on his left hand side :( – followed by Grrrrrr! He’s THEEEEE Sweetest Boy you’d EVER want to meet! He has 1 Bengal Bro, Bronson (3 & 1/2) and polydactal Calico Sister Princess – a rescue – about a year & 1/2…Thx for the post! It’s SUCH a shame that Black Cats have SUCH a bad rap! Friday the 13th & Halloween to DEFINITELY be avoided from letting them out! I’m happy that a Country, such as Japan…sees it in a VERY different light! :)
