Fun fact black cat

Depending on the culture, black cats are an omen for good luck or bad luck. In the U.S. and a majority of western European countries, a black cat crossing your path is considered a harbinger of bad things. However, in the United Kingdom and Japan, the superstition is quite the opposite, a black cat is a good omen.

Even the direction that a cat walks can have significance. Pirates of the 18th century believed that a black cat walking toward someone would bring that person bad luck. If a black cat walks away from someone, then that person will have good luck.
