Black cats have always been looked at as bad luck around Halloween time. Children notice one strolling down the street and are slightly more afraid of the cat than if it was a different color because of the stories made. Children's books sumarize black cats as witches' friends and evil, but in truth they are very loving if taken care of. When I first saw my cat I thought to myself, Do I really want a black cat? It could give me bad luck... Turns out I did because I got her. She was the smallest, fastest kitten in the room; always hiding and never wanting to be touched. After I got her, I spent many hours keeping her company and attempting to build a relationship with this cat. Now, 3 years later, she and I have an unseperable bond. Shadow gives good luck around Halloween instead of unluckiness that most black cats are seen to give. Whenever you see a black cat, I hope you now think about good luck instead of bad luck.
