About those Black Cats
Everybody knows that black cats are bad luck, right? Well, it may surprise you to learn that in a lot of cultures over the ages, the thinking was just the opposite. In ancient Egypt, where cats, in general, were regarded as holy, black cats were specifically thought to bring favor from the goddess Bastet. Sailors from many lands have kept black cats onboard their ships to bring good fortune. And in some parts of the world, a black cat’s luck depends on which way it’s headed - a cat walking toward you is good luck, but a cat walking away from you means you’d better watch out.
Obviously, a lot of folks have a lot of different ideas about what black cats mean. If you ask us, we’re pretty sure they’re just cats like any others, and whatever luck seems to follow them around has more to do with the humans than it does with the cats. Either way, they’re lovely creatures with a striking look, and it hardly seems fair to lay the responsibility of bringing any kind of fortune onto their fuzzy shoulders. That said, we’ll admit we may get a little twinge of anxiety when a black cat happens to stroll across our paths. Just a little, though.
Whether you’re bringing bad, good, or undecided luck to the table, you’ll cut a fine feline figure in this polyester velour kitty kit featuring a tail and ears. The stuffed velour tail is 36 inches long, features a cute pink bow, and fastens to your clothing with an included pin. The black and pink ears slide onto your head attached to a velour-covered plastic headband. Pair it with a black bodysuit (sold separately) for a full-body cat costume, or just wear the ears and tail for an easy party ensemble. Sure, you might come across some superstitious sorts who want to steer clear of you, but that’s on them. When you bring the luck, you make the rules.
