The Back Story:

Black Cat

The supernatural powers attributed to black cats were sometimes viewed positively. For example sailors considering a ship’s cat should be black to bring the ship’s crew good luck. Sometimes, fishermen’s wives would keep black cats at home, in the hope that they would use their influence to protect their husbands while at sea. The view of black cats being favorable creatures is attributed specifically to the Egyptian Cat Goddess, Bast.

All-black fur pigmentation is more prevalent in male cats than female cats. Their high melanin pigment content causes most black cats to have yellow eyes.
