A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.  Groucho Marx

With thanks to Groucho, yes, a black cat crossing your path signifies that it is going somewhere.  Black cat lovers know that the “somewhere” could very likely be into your life and into your heart!

If a homeless black cat has entered your life, you probably have a special story to tell about how it happened, and how the lucky cat (or cats!) changed your life in unexpectedly positive ways.

Not only did you get to observe how sleek and beautiful, entertaining and loving black cats are, but you also made new best friends.  And that is lucky, indeed!  For those of you who haven’t had the experience, well…this lucky event could happen to you at any time!

As a follow-up to Black Cat Valentine’s day, we thought it would be fun to share some images that celebrate the ‘pot-o-gold’ that a black cat can bring to your life—created by artists and photographers who love black cats.
