Cats and Superstition

Bombay Black Cat

Are black cats crossing your path really bad luck? I owned a black cat named Onyx. She was a good mama cat to four kittens and was an excellent hunter of birds and mice. She disappeared mysteriously one night and never came back home, that was unlucky I suppose.

 Cats are instinctual. If you have a cat in your family it is like having a resident healer on call 24/7. These loving compassionate animals will stay by your side whenever you are hurting. 

Spirituality and Your Cat

It is interesting to compare the characteristics of the domesticated cat to the bigs cats living in the wild. Cat personalities and behaviors are very much aligned with nature and spirituality.
