How did black cats ever get associated with witches in the first place? Because, seriously, black cats are not what I'd put on my top ten list of scary talismans. Like a zombie shows up and he's got someone's guts wrapped around his neck like a long sausage necklace and Dr. Frankenstein shows up and he's wheelbarrowing around this stinky meat mannequin with flies buzzing around it made up of sewn together body parts and he's mumbling, "It's alive, it's alive," when it's obviously not and then the wicked witch shows up and she's got ... a cat. Seriously? Frankenstein is all, "WTF, lady? You brought a cat?" and the zombie's like, "Guuh, nice kitty," and the cat jumps out of the witch's arms and slinks around the zombie's putrefied leg and purrs and the witch is like, "Well, excuse me for not living up to your expectations, assholes," but the Zombie points at her and says, "Guh, loser," so then she's like, "Yeah, well shut up you douchebag cuz you're going to brown your tighties when you see what else I brought," and then she pulls out a broomstick but that doesn't get the reaction she's hoping for either.
So remember, don't let other people think you're a loser. Black cats aren't Halloween props - but they do make great pets.
