(From press release) Yes, contrary to some archaic stigma about black cats in our country, black cats have a very positive image and represent prosperity and good luck in other parts of the world! For instance:

  • In Scotland, if a black cat appears on your doorstep, it is seen as a sign of prosperity.
  • In the south of France, black cats are referred ‘magical cats’ and, according to local folklore, feeding and treating them well will bring good luck to the owner.
  • Owning a black cat in Asia is considered lucky
  • In parts of England, a black cat as a wedding gift is thought to bring good luck to the bride.
  • In northern Europe, taking in and caring for a black cat can ensure fair weather and safe passage during voyages on the sea.
  • If you hear a black cat sneeze in Italy, you’re in for a streak of good luck.
  • Black cats are a symbol of good luck in Japan and if someone sees a black cat crossing their path, they say ‘konnichiwa’ and take control of their own luck.

So, there are many reasons why one, or more, of these beautiful black kitties will bring you good luck and happiness as your new companion(s). This Saturday, September 10th at 11am to 2pm  is your chance to adopt a lucky black kitty at Yolo SPCA’s “Black Cat Adopt-A-Rama” at the Davis Petco in the Marketplace Shopping Center at 1341 West Covell Boulevard.
