Of course a cat is a cat and colour doesn't matter how wonderful and lovable he/she is..but I dare say black is my favourite.

I'm not superstitious! Friday the 13th is just another day. If people were told that Saturday the 17th or Wednesday the 24th was an unlucky day, it would be all the same. People are more apt to notice even the least bad thing that happens on an "unlucky" day.

Black cats, black dogs - both are badly treated by superstitious nonsense. All cats and dogs are lovable. Friday the 13th marks one day in history and in no way applies to our life today. Silly, foolish people.

My black cat is warming my feet at the moment, I don't bother him with hugs while he's napping.

Thanks everyone for commenting. I have a black cat and a tortoiseshell cat. Both are wonderful.

My black cat crosses my path every day. Friday the 13th is no different. Stop being superstitious, people!

Noted! Believe me be my miniature black panther gets tons of hugs & kisses everyday...My boy is a lover and understands when Mama (Me) says "Give me kish". He puts his paws on my lap, stick his neck straight up and i bend down to get his kiss and kiss him back. And when on my lap, which is often he stands on his hind legs and wraps both arms around my neck and gives me hugs as well!!! Smartest animals on the planet, those cats!!!
