What people say about the black cat in the house: good or bad
About the black cat in the house there are many signs. The most important sign is known to everyone — the popular superstition claims that meeting a black cat on the street is extremely undesirable.
A negative situation is when the animal of a dark suit runs across the road: in this case, it is strongly recommended to change the route abruptly in order to avoid trouble.
However, let’s see where this sign came from? How common is it?
Was a black suit always considered a harbinger of bad luck?
A bit of history
Egyptians respected black cats, even worshiped them. In this case, the black cat was considered a model of grace and beauty.
People believed that such an animal brings with it the good fortune and the mercy of the gods.
The negative image of a black cat appeared only in the Middle Ages, when the witch hunt began. During this period, the idea appeared that the real witch always has a black cat as a talisman.
Now we don’t believe in witches at all, but we still fear black cats. Most likely, completely in vain!
By the way, true folk beliefs (for example, the superstitions of the peoples of Southern Europe) claim that a pet of a black color is an excellent talisman for the house. This is a brave, wayward creature that will always protect its owners from any negative, including from evil forces.
It is a graceful black cat capable of such feats, and not at all pampered lazy cats of light color. And another sign, this time from the southern hemisphere: in Mexico, a black cat is a sign of good luck, not unhappiness.
So what to believe is your choice!
Representations of our distant ancestors
It is known that the ancient Slavs respected cats black color. They were considered not only unsurpassed micelles, but also powerful amulets.
