Meaning of crossing paths with a black cat.
« on: March 18, 2013, 10:30:12 PM »

I was walking to get a bite to eat when I saw a shadow like figure cross the road(it was late at night). As I continued walking, I looked over to my side and saw a black cat with its green eyes glowing gorgeously. Was the cat a sign or warning of any sort?

Did you feel as if something was trying to provide you with a warning, or did it merely come to mind because of it long standing superstition about black cats?

I'm going to personally say probably not.

Some consider a black cat to be good luck.

It means you saw a black cat with green eyes.  If it followed you home, I might attach more meaning to it but superstition about black cats is silly, imo.  I think they are beautiful animals and always enjoy when I see one.  Nothing to fret over.  Consider yourself lucky to have seen such a lovely animal. :)

It doesn't matter what colour the cat is, when ever I see one I can't walk past without talking to it.

If I see a cat I'm usually wanting to bring it home.... My mom always refuses though since we have three already. ;D

I used to spazz a bit when a black cat crossed my path, old supersitions die hard and all.  Then I moved to my current house and I swear there are probably 30 black cats in and around the neighborhood.  I finally decided if it was truly bad luck I should be dead one day when every turn I took had a black cat crossing my path.

I found this article which gives both the good and the bad and was darn interesting when I got into it as it has a lot of references at the bottom to explore....

An interesting read Khara. Personally I've never viewed cats as being lucky or unlucky, I'm a cat lover and thats that. I grew up with cats around, I actually miss not having one around these days. (Now I'll wait for Marisol to pounce on me for this...LoL)

I do Mari. When I visit my brother I usually sit with his cats, he has two; one is kinda shy and stays only if she wants to and the other is a bit scrawny and unsteady, she has diabetes and has to have a special diet. loves a bit of attention though.

All they say about cats being bad luck is mostly european . If you killed a cat in old Egypt you got worse then what you did to the cat . Look and the far east cats are good luck . All depend on how and where your from . Bad luck comes about because you screwed up . It's a bad habit humans have of trying to blame something else for their mistake .
