​There are a variety of back cat coffee ​mugs here. There's no reason these mugs just have to be for coffee.  I drink a fair amount of hot tea and still use my cute mugs.  In fact, in recent healthier times I have even been having a hot water in my mug.  Weird I know but actually it's not too bad at all.

Black Cat Superstitions

Superstition surrounds black cats, for example, a black cat crossing in front of us can mean to some that some bad luck is going to follow but this isn't the same for all cultures.

Why do black cats have so many bad omens attributed to them?


It would appear that many of these superstitions have their roots in the Middle Ages, a time when superstition was common and people were driven by fear and lack of knowledge.


In different parts of the world, superstitions surrounding black cats vary however there are still vestiges of those superstitions that remain today.

For example, most people would have a reaction to a black cat passing in front of them whether it be positive or negative.  

It is not something that we attach much thought to apart from it being a superstition.

There is something special about a black cat. There was a black cat in our family once, a gorgeous cat, creatively named, Blackie.

We also have a cat called Tom. I guess we are not known in our family for creative cat names.
