A lot of people consider black cats as bad luck, but here's why they don't deserve their bad reputation.
3 Things You May Have Not Already Known About Black Cats
1. Some cultures refer to black cats as good luck!
2. Research shows that the gene in the black color makes black cat's immune systems more strong than most other cat's.
3. Sometimes people even adopt black cats and use them as props for their Halloween costumes or decorating purposes, not at all planning to give them a permanent home. This is because some places think black cats are bad luck, which led to them being popular on Halloween.
Black Cats vs. Other Cats
Black cats are actually about the same as most cats, too. They're cute, fluffy, lovable, and goofy. Just like any other cat! I have a black cat myself. His name is Lenny, short for Leonardo. Short for Leonardo Da Kitty. Lenny has a sister named Layla, and she's a calico tabby mix. I consider them both good luck. Leonardo Da Kitty loves to be loved and constantly crosses my path. After, nothing so bad happens that I say, "Lenny gave me bad luck!" Although sometimes I have to say, "Lenny gave me good luck!"
Desirable Black Cats and How They Were Treated By the Egyptians
It is also somewhat difficult to find black cats in adoption centers due to the high demand of them being so desirable. I was lucky to have found Lenny! Speaking of Lenny, did you know his ancestors used to be treated like leaders by the Egyptians? They thought that black cats were magical and had the ability to bestow the gift of good luck upon people who took care of them. When they passed away, the black cats were mummified, which prevented the bodies from rotting. I think Lenny's a little bummed out about that.. I'm sure he wants to be treated as a leader, too! I try, Lenny. I try.

Why You Should Consider Getting a Black Cat
If you've ever considered getting a cat, I'd recommend getting a black one. Not only are black cats just as good as other cats, but they have even more things to love about them! It's more difficult for them to catch diseases because of the genes in their fur, and with the Coronavirus, you probably want your cat to get all the protection from sicknesses that it can. So they might even live longer than other cats due to that, if you keep it happy and healthy. Black cats are also believed to scare away evil spirits, demons, and even stalkers. Wouldn't you like a cat that scares evil spirits away everywhere it goes? Lenny is protecting our house as I write this! He's doing so in my lap so he may be comfortable as he blesses our household.
