In case you can't tell, I love Jyn more than I love most human beings. However, not everyone feels the same way I do about black cats.

Upon adopting her I was SPECIFICALLY WARNED by the foster home "not to let her near any windows in October or on any Friday the 13th." When I naively asked why, I received the horrifying response that "some people seek out, capture, and kill black cats" during those times because of the ancient superstition that they are bad luck.

So I've taken the liberty of coming up with 13 reasons why black cats are actually the best:

4. In many cultures, black cats are actually believed to be GOOD luck and bring prosperity, so forget everything you think you know.

The only time you could be unlucky is if you DON'T have a black cat.

7. They take great black and white photos and will bring you much Instagram success because they are tiny models.

HaPpY Friday the 13th! Remember that a black cat crossing your path signifies that the cat is going somewhere. 😂

9. Stereotyping is messed up and not who you are on the inside because you're a good person.

10. Since some people are scared of them (for literally no reason), adopting one automatically gives you some badass points.

If someone is superstitious and rude, causally let them know your baby has your back, always.

11. If eyes are truly the windows to the soul, then black cats have the most beautiful souls of any creature on Earth.

13. And, most importantly, they have to wait twice as long to be adopted in some cases, and are incredibly grateful animals for those who DO adopt them.
