The Story of the Black Cat

Posted on October 30 2013

So, you thought your furry friend was just a black cat. Think again. This tabby is a symbol of superstition, but is yours a bringer of good luck or evil? In western history, black cats have often been looked upon as a bad omen, suspected for being familiar with the wicked witch herself. Now, not all witches' familiars are black cats, they could be any colour or breed. They could have been a dog or even.... a pig. Yep, you read it here first. Now there's a way to jazz up your Wicked Witch of the West costume. That said, the image of the witch and her black cat prevails.   karloff-theblackcat   Found roaming the night, the black cat became a target for superstition and was thought to be a supernatural servant, a witch in disguise, or maybe even a witch reborn. As second in command, this feline friend was thought to be acting as a cipher for a witch's own anger and desires and maybe even the occasional sacrificial victim in the casting of evil spells. Bubble bubble toil and trouble.   poe event 2010 black cat 2   It has been said amongst the mounts of Scotland that the black cat signifies prosperity and, in England, has even served as a token of luck for brides-to-be. This mysterious mog is overwhelmingly associated with evil legends. Rumour has it, on the day King Charles I of England was arrested, his beloved black cat died... Spooky ay? Whilst there's many a tale of mystery surrounding the black cat, the most notorious of all is of its role as a witches loyal companion. Whilst the Egyptians may have loved them, the medieval Europeans hunted them. So keep one eye open this All Hallows Eve, if a black cat crosses you from right to left, misfortune may befall you.   CIS:CAI180
