24 Beautifully Spooky Black Cats

With Halloween approaching, black cats come into the limelight. I have always been partial to black cats. I love their shiny fur and striking bright eyes. And no, I don’t worry when one crosses my path!

As a bit of related trivia, did you know that in Europe many believe that owning a black cat is good luck? It is only when coming across one that the bad luck superstition sets in.

For your Halloween viewing pleasure, here are 24 particularly striking photos of black cats.
