Black cats are thought to bring bad luck—but we think they’re absolutely adorable, ultra pettable, and cuddletastic. Not to mention utterly magnificent and, really, just tinier versions of noble panthers. That’s why Bored Panda compiled this mega-awesome super-duper massively-fluffy list of the cutest and funniest pictures of black cats.
There are plenty of superstitions surrounding black cats. Sadly, some of them are negative. For instance, in the Middle Ages, cats were thought to have a close link to black magic and witchcraft. In fact, these adorable cats were thought to be witches in disguise! This led to a lot of kitties ending up hurt as they were punished alongside witches in 13th century Europe and 17th century Massachusetts. Nowadays, black cats are still sometimes seen as symbols of the mystical. And what Halloween party is complete without someone dressing up as a cute cat or putting up a prop of a feline in a witch’s hat?
