On September 19th, cats all over th’ seven seas be celebratin’ Meow Like A Pirate Day. Aaargh! In pirate lore, black cats were a pirate’s favored companion fer keepin’ rodents at bay. Pirates, a superstitious lot, claimed if th’ ship’s cat approached a sailor, it meant jolly luck. If th’ cat approached halfway ‘n turned away, it meant bad luck would follow. If a cat was thrown overboard, signaled stormy seven seas ‘n extra bad luck to follow.

Th’ Practical Side ‘o Black Cat Luck

Black cats were lucky by default. Thar more black cats than other colors ‘n any cat and any cat who could keep their grub supplies rodent-free was a blessin’. Th’ furry sea monsters be better than a pillow to sliumber wit’ ‘n more a ruckas to watch than a barrel monkeys full ‘o rum.




Double ‘yer Luck With Black Polys

Black polydactyl cats (cats wit’ extra toes) were considered extra lucky. Their big paws wit’ extra toes, could grip, climb ‘n hunt wit’ extraordinary skill. Th’ black darlings with furry sea legs were valued as much as any treasure. Aaargh!
