When my old cat died, I decided to pick one out of the Humane Society.  They had named the first cat I saw “Tiger”, and I fell in love with him on sight. But when I brought him home, I discovered he didn’t quite have the courage of the comic book hero. I made some mistakes which resulted in a month long struggle to coax him out of his hiding place to join the family. I renamed him Bobby, and he is wonderful cat, but my guests seem a little uncomfortable when he comes into the room.  After all, he is completely black. He is a black cats breed and some people are afraid of Black Cats… The Black Cat in History Historically, black cats have been associated with omens , bad luck and, well...evil. The poor unfortunate kitties have been used in rituals, and were supposedly the "familiars" of witches.
