I try to respect people’s beliefs and/or fears.
After all, I look away whenever I see a needle on a t.v. screen, much less in real life.
But every time a black cat stays at the shelter days, weeks, or even months longer than the other cats, it makes me sad.
In my personal experience, black cats are just as sweet–sometimes a little sweeter–than cats of other colors. I admit the boy cats seem to end up massive, but they’re generally very mild-mannered, like big dogs. But black cats and dogs are harder to get into a home–which makes me very glad I volunteer at a no-kill shelter.
Do you have any superstitions? How do they affect your life?
