From a historical standpoint, black cats don’t have the best reputation. One of the most long-lasting superstitions is that crossing paths with a bad cat will bring bad luck. We’re not even sure how black cats got such a terrible reputation when they’re so ridiculously adorable. We’re definitely not history buffs, but we know it started when black cats started being associated with witches. Similar to witches, cats were known not to have respect for authority. Even today, cats are known for being very cheeky, cunning creatures, but that’s what we love about them so much. However, back in the day, people weren’t the biggest fans of the fact that they didn’t follow the status quo. We’re just glad that we made it to modern times, where it’s safe to be best friends with black cats, no matter how cheeky they are. Scroll down for a Twitter thread with the cutest pictures of black cats this week.
