Mexican Black Onyx Cat
Love black cats but are a little superstitious if they cross your path? Where did that legend even come from?
It is believed that this superstition began around the Middle Ages in Europe. A myth spread about a man and his son who came across a black cat, which they began to toss rocks at. The injured cat ran into a woman’s house who was suspected of being a witch and when the woman happened to appear limping and bruised the next day, people suspected that the cat must be the woman in disguise.
Talk about jumping to conclusions! Although back in ancient Egyptian times black cats were viewed as divine and that gods lived inside them. The Irish in the 19th century viewed black cats as good omens, and the Japanese culture sees black cats as a symbol of prosperity.
See black cats however you want, these black onyx cats can help fight off negative energy as the veil starts to thin this Halloween season.
