The superstition of black cats dates back to Ancient Greece. According to Greek mythology, Zeus’ wife Hera once turned her servant Galinthias into a black cat as punishment for interfering with Hercules’ birth. Galinthias later became an aide to Hecate, the goddess of witchcraft, and black cats have had different meanings in different cultures ever since. You’ve probably heard that if a black cat crosses your path, it’s bad luck. As these myths are getting busted, we have aggregated some of the funniest black cat jokes for you to laugh at.
Although the origin of this popular black cat myth is unknown, it could be related to the cat’s slick demeanour. Some superstitious observers may believe that a black cat’s sly movements indicate that he is up to no good. But black cats should not be stereotyped because they appear to be sly. Indeed, they are considered lucky in many cultures. A strange black cat appearing on your doorstep is considered lucky in Scotland. Black cats are thought to help single women find suitors in Japan. There are many silly superstitions out there, but most people regard black cats as cute rather than creepy.
