Do black cats bring good luck or bad? Black cats were popular in ancient Egypt to honor a goddess depicted with a cat’s head. More recently, ships sailed with a black cat aboard for luck on long voyages. Many in Japan, England and Ireland believe that black cats bring good fortune. But they once signified black magic: In medieval Europe and colonial America, black cats were thought to be spooky “familiars,” or companions, of witches.
