The only danger associated with a white cat is to your wardrobe. lol My mom always wanted a white cat, and she got her wish when I was a teenager. Ugh. I loved her to pieces, but man I did spend a lot of time brushing my clothing. And the time I had a bunch of friends over in winter, and she slept on our pile of coats in the guest room? Took a while for my friends to let me forget that one, cat hair is a huge pain to remove from wool...

Your cat will eat you while your body is still warm.
Anecdotally, from an animal control officer of my acquaintance, that opposite is actually true. Cats often make it harder to remove an owners body as well, they will sit on them and not allow first responders close, so they have to call for help.

Not surprising. Cats are extremely instinctive and loyal to their owner; less trusting. Dogs, on the other hand, (though this doesn't apply to every breed & unless trained otherwise) quick to meet & greet anyone for attention. I've had to dodge owners with dogs shopping in Pet Smart when pressed for time.

Taken in the wee hours of the night.



This one has the red eyes. I have always wondered why he has the red. Hmmm...

There is no such thing as witches so black cats CANNOT have anything to do with them! That is so ridiculous.

I never heard of any of these weird superstitions about broken mirrors or walking under ladders or opening umbrellas indoors until I was in elementary school. I thought they sounded stupid then and that hasn't changed over the intervening years. I was a grown-a$$ woman before I ever heard of people not adopting black cats because they're afraid of them. Morons. Shouldn't be allowed to have a cat of ANY color.

So no, there is nothing to be afraid of from a white cat - unless it's a full grown albino tiger. Actually half grown, probably not safe either.

What about a snow leapord, or Lynx?

My sis's friend had a pet Bobcat she carried with her. Not friendly at all. I found out the hard way.

Indeed!! It would likely be a half a$$ed situation if a grown a$$ woman walked around with a half grown albino tiger...

I don't know about the snow leopard, but in certain states (including more rural areas of New York) if you take training as a wildlife rehabilitator /educator and get your state and federal license, you can own a Lynx.

A woman in my state that has a Youtube channel titled "WildlifeBernie" owns a Lynx named Max. He is somewhat of an education ambassador for Lynx and wildlife awareness, and Bernie takes him to certain venues (schools, etc) for that purpose.

Owning one is a MAJOR commitment and responsibility...

I totally agree EXCEPT for walking under a ladder. If you can walk under a ladder, chances are very good youíre in some sort of construction or other work zone. People drop things, things slip and fall off and in fact, sometimes people themselves fall. Donít ever walk under a ladder. To me thatís not superstition, itís common sense.
