Why Black Cats Are The Best Cats

Believe it or not, they don't bring bad luck everywhere they go.

Why Black Cats Are The Best Cats
Alexandra Michalski

With it being the month of October, it makes perfect sense to see images of black cats everywhere you go. Whether they're next to witches or flying on broomsticks, these cute, cuddly cats seem to be synonymous with Halloween. Yet, black cats have the lowest adoption rates across the board mostly because of their supposed connections to old superstitions. Some believe that these cats are symbols of bad luck, misfortune, or even omens of death. My own great-grandmother would stop and turn her car around if a black cat crossed in front of her when she was driven. I can't even begin to imagine her face if she knew that I own one of these supposed omens of death myself. After owning Sapphire for just over three years, I now know that black cats are some of the best cats you can ever own!

They look just like Toothless!

Toothless or Sapphire? You decide.

Just look at that adorable face! It makes you wonder if the animators of How to Train Your Dragon designed Toothless after a black cat.

A black cat with white lips just makes it always look like they finished snacking on those tasty treats.

Any picture you take of them in the fall is the ultimate aesthetic

Pumpkins are usually okay but gourds are scary.

Just plop down a pumpkin next to your cat or take them outside towards a pile of leaves and you instantly have your next Instagram post!

They are quite possibly the cutest little ghost detectors out there

Just look at that adorable face staring at nothing.

I have two cats. One is black, and one isn't. One chases things that aren't visible to the naked eye but are on camera. Any guesses which cat sees the ghosts?

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
