Black cats are seen as a symbol of good luck, especially for single women. They are credited for attracting fine suitors.


The “Maneki Neko” (Beckoning Cat) is also a common symbol of good luck, and its raised paw is a welcoming gesture. Each Beckoning Cat is believed to have different strengths, depending on the animal’s color. The black cat is thought to ward off evil.
