(Not So) Fun Fact: Pilgrims and Black Cats

Fun facts about black cats

The first pilgrims in America were highly-religious and obviously brought many superstitions with them from Europe. One was a distrust of black cats that many assumed were companions of witches and connected to the Devil and demons. Someone owning in a black cat in their community would be highly-punished and even killed for it.
