A black cat crossing your path
signifies that the animal is going somewhere.
Groucho and I agree when it comes to black cats. I'm not superstitious. The only bad luck I anticipate is if I trip over them as I rush out the back door. (I don't need help being clumsy.)
These are the kittens that Kinley and Grandpa retrieved from the old stone chimney last May with the "kitten catcher" (aka, a hoe).
Black cat or white cat:
If it can catch mice, it's a good cat.
-- Chinese proverb
The same can be said about yellow and gray cats and calicos, too!
