The Black Cat Syndrome

The black cat syndrome refers to a very common situation animal shelters find themselves in when they have to take care and give away cats to perspective owners. Because black cats have been for a long time associated with bad luck (remeber never to cross a street when a black cat just crossed it first?) and how movies have perpetuated such an idea as well as the ever present black cat on Halloween decorations everywhere, these poor animals find themselves unwanted and left behind. I have a very close affinity for cats in general and black cats in particular, as a person who’s always felt (and made to feel) unwanted, outcast, someone to stay away from or hurt and shove off. My life is a Black Cat Syndrome story.
