Black cats have been linked to several superstitions in Western societies for ages. They are typically depicted as witches' companions or symbols of misfortune, leading to their neglect and mistreatment. Nonetheless, black cats are venerated in other regions, such as Europe and Japan, as bringers of prosperity and good luck. This contrast in attitudes underscores the significance of cultural awareness in influencing how we perceive and treat animals.
