A lot of people don’t realize that black cats have also considered good luck through the ages. Examples of vintage postcards from the early 1900’s make it readily apparent that black cats were well-loved and considered good luck!. Going all the way back to 3000 BC, black cats were held in the highest esteem and to harm one was considered a capital crime. Sailors throughout history have believed having a  black cat on board their ship would bring good luck, and some fisherman’s wives would keep black cats at home to influence the safe returns of their husbands.
