It seems that black cats are either revered or feared…..
The fear element probably stems from folklore held over from the Middle Ages when black cats were thought to be witches’ familiars.
In some countries, black cats suggest bad luck, although in the UK and parts of Asia they are considered to be good luck.
When I was growing up in the UK, I was taught to believe that black cats were good luck. I was told when one walked in front of me….very good luck:)
People who know or own black cats, love them.
For that matter, I love all cats.

Where there are black cats, there have to be magical hummingbirds.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend.
