在许多西方文化中,黑猫一直被认为是厄运的预兆——从中世纪开始,它们就与巫术联系在一起。许多文化认为,黑猫过路意味着你可能遭受灾难甚至死亡。赌徒们特别惧怕黑猫诅咒,很多人认为,如果他们去赌场时看到黑猫,就应该放弃赌博计划。不过,在其他地方,情况恰恰相反,黑猫也会被认为是吉祥的象征;在日本、英国和爱尔兰等一些文化中,黑猫被认是吉祥好运的象征。

Black cats have long been considered as an omen of bad luck in many Western cultures – they have been associated with witchcraft since the Middle Ages. Many cultures believe that a black cat crossing the path means you may suffer disaster or even death. Gamblers are especially careful of the black cat curse, with many believing if they see a black cat while going to a casino, they should abandon their plans to gamble. However, it's not all bad news for black cats; in some cultures, including Japan, Britain and Ireland, the opposite is true, and black cats are seen as bringers of good luck.
