On March 15, 2020, I adopted a cat. He is a boy who is around 6-7 years old. Last year in August my daughter rescued him, he has broken, after the battle with a dog. He’s a nobody’s jerk who lived his life only outside.
My daughter took him to a veterinary office, where he has given the necessary care. Both, my daughter and I love black cats.
Tomcat vaccinated and dewormed. It publicized to adopted. To my surprise, they were not willing. Why? I learned that the adopters have super titles. Its color is white with black. This color is not acceptable. Not even the black one completely. They seem to be an exception because I love black cats. Although cats have been growing for over 34 years, I did not know about the adopter’s preferences about the color of a cat. I have had and have both cats white with black and full black. And I can say that they are only as loving, grateful and smart as any other cat.
The cabinet forced to narrow the space. The cats for adoption could no longer stay in the cabinet. So I wanted to give the kitten a chance. I brought him home and gave him a name: John. He learned his name the same day. Answer when I call. I wanted to keep him separate from my cats for a few days. But in the evening he opened the door of the room (which was also locked). Went out to socialize with the rest of the cats and dogs in my house. They are very friendly. There were no incidents.
John is very kind, grateful and very smart. He adapted immediately to our house and yard. Only he has to recover 6 or 7 years of love. In the few days since he has been with us, John has made a more silky and beautiful fur. It seems that the new living conditions are affecting him.
I researched to find out why adopters don’t like black and white with black in cats. I will share with you what I learned.
Where does superstition come from?
Many superstitions in the center of which this wonderful feline with the fur of the night reigns, have “survived” from the ancient times of the ancient Chaldean to the present day.
All cats prick and spit when they scared or annoyed. If the cat is black, things change. This behavior associated with the anticipation of evil or bad luck. It regarded as a message from hell. Although it is a natural, defensive behavior. In the case of the black cat (or white with black), the nervous situation changes. She is no longer a feline simile but an evil vision. It arouses repulsion and fear. And today many people do not dare to say that this cat is “the devil in person”.
One of the reasons that led to the emergence of superstition is the fact that the black cat represented the cult object of the pagan religions of antiquity. From here, probably, the aversion of the Christian Church to the black cat appeared.
The feeling of aversion to the black cat is present in many cultures. In ancient times the Chaldean s believed that the black cat was foreshadowing evil. To remove the misfortune, they used exorcism, shouting, “Disappear! Cursed”.
The seed of black hatred of the black cat brought to Europe. The pagan worship of the goddess Freia and the worship of the goddess Holda provided for the initiation ritual only in the presence of a black cat. The witch who wished to join the cult appeared at a meeting disguised as a black cat. During the ritual, the wizards shouted, “Grace! Sabbat “.
Many Northern European legends mention the Saturday of Cats, which takes place on Christmas night. According to another medieval legend, on the day of Universal Judgment people will see black cats hanging from the walls of hell.
In the quartet “The Gospel of the Devil” it stated that the black cats made a pact with the devil. Through this pact, they have the right to beat people on Good Friday.
Pope Gregory IX issued a bubble condemning those who were guilty of a particularly serious crime of raising a black cat. Its color symbolizes evil and shame.

From the fifteenth century to the seventeenth century, literature abounds in writings about witches and their black cats. Even the summaries of the trials of women suspected of practicing black magic are full of references to black cats. For example, in the case file you can find that, in 1586, a woman by the name of Anne Winkelzipfel convicted of witchcraft. She visited the house of a certain Jaques Boille disguised as a black cat. She wanted to bring a serious curse on the owner of the house.
In 1861, the French playwright Regnard wrote that, during his trip from Lapland, he encountered snowflakes. They had the power to turn evil people into black cats.
Some legends say that black cats are lucky and rich. In southern France, for example, there is a myth today about a black owl, named Matagot. According to the myth, Matagot has the power to enrich the house in which it sheltered. For the miracle to accomplished, the rump must fed with a fat hen. Then it is easily taken off the tail, put in a bag and brought home in great secrecy. The person involved in this action should not look back.
In the French region of Brittany, there is still today a legend according to which each black cat hides in its fur a single white hair. If someone discovers it, they must snatch it without scratching the feline. In this way, the white hair turns into a powerful talisman. This talisman brings wealth and love.
We, modern people, read these myths as mere stories. We can’t find a correspondent in reality. We love cats because they are intelligent, elegant and with strong personalities, worthy of admiration.
If, however, by chance, the cat has black fur, the force of attraction to it is even stronger.
Most black cat owners are particularly fascinated by the hypnotic force of their eyes.
Gold or green, they always remember the eyes of a panther.
Fascinating and mysterious, adored, black cats have gained an important place in human history. They appeared frequently in literary writings. They often inspired the writers.
Unfortunately, there are people obsessed with selfies, who abandon their black cats and take them to shelter. That’s because black cats “don’t look good” in a selfie. Think about what an abandoned cat feels like after he or she has known “family” life.
I hope you are not superstitious.
If you are considering adopting a cat, try a shelter first. And check if they have no black or white cats with black.
I assure you they are beautiful, regardless of age. Besides the fact that you will have a special companion, you will save a life.
I just did it with John and I am very happy when I see that he is now a happy kitten.
I would be happy to leave a comment and tell me your opinion about black cats or white cats with black. If you have such a cat, tell me about it. Thanks.
You can now learn to communicate directly with your cat.
