Cat Superstitions

There have existed superstitions about cats, especially black cats, that evolved from the infamous witch-hunts and executions during the 12th and 13th centuries. It was believed that cats were either witches that transformed themselves into cats in order to attend midnight meetings conducted by the Devil, or they were familiars for witches in order to carry out evil purposes without having to be present at a location.

We’ve all heard these negative kitty superstitions — “a black cat crossing your path is an omen for bad luck” and “cats should not be allowed around babies or they will sit on their chests and steal their breath.” But have you heard these positive superstitions about cats?

  • If you want to ensure good health and prosperity, stroke a black cat and listen to it purr.
  • Placing a cat in an empty cradle will grant a newlywed couple’s wish for children.
  • A cat that has three different colors in its coat will protect you from fever and fire.

Amazingly, many of these superstitions, especially the negative ones about black cats, are still believed today. Many rescues and shelters refuse to adopt out black cats just prior to and during the month of October. Their link to witches and the Devil make Halloween a dangerous time for black cats.

Cats are neither good luck nor bad luck. They are special creations that should be respected and loved, not feared because of ancient superstitious beliefs.

MeoowzResQ Kitties are Movie Stars

As a kitten rescue, we know how important it is to spay or neuter kittens and cats in order to help keep the feral population down. Kara Guezze has created several YouTube videos to try and spread this message as well as other important issues facing domestic animals. Check out Kara’s latest video starring several MeoowzIE kitties.

MeoowzResQ Volunteer is a Cool Kid!

rocios-kittens-scaledOne of our very own volunteers, Rocio Valdez, was nominated as one of ABC7’s Cool Kids! The weekly segment airs on Thursdays at 4:00pm and highlights some amazing kids and their talents, passions, or incredible stories.

Rocio, 17, loves cats and has three of her own. She was asked by MeoowzResQ to foster a few kittens until they were ready to be adopted.

rocios-kittens-2“I was only going to foster two kittens and they were a month old and I was only going to bottle feed them for a month, but then that same day they called me and asked if I could take four more kittens,” Rocio said.

Rocio began fostering at the start of the summer by bottle feeding the kittens every three hours while still maintaining a tight summer schedule, which includes an internship and water polo practice.

“It was busy, but I thought it was really fun,” Rocio said.

In September, Rocio started volunteering at the Santa Ana Adoption Events on Sundays. Her kittens are nearly big enough to be spayed or neutered and they are all anxious to find new homes! She expects to bring her kittens to the Santa Ana Adoption Event held on Sunday, September 18, 2016 at the Petco in the Bristol Plaza.

Congratulations Rocio!
