A Lucky Black Cat Poppet for Black Cat Appreciation Day

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Tomorrow is National Black Cat Day in England. It is held each year on 27 October in this country and was started by Cats Protection with the aim of promoting the beauty of black cats. 
According to animal charities, black cats are more difficult to find homes for because some people think they are unlucky. Personally, I’ve always thought of them as symbols of good luck. In fact I describled how to make a black cat charm for good luck in my book Pagan Portals – Poppets and Magical Dolls. Here’s the quote from the book:

Lucky black cat charm 

As a talisman to bring good luck, make a black cat-shaped poppet from felt, small enough to keep in your pocket or bag. Inside the cat put a mixture of herbs and items associated with luck such as an acorn and dried heather, clover or mint. Add a few strands of your own hair – and a few strands of fur fallen from your own cat if you have one. Put a yellow or gold ribbon around the neck of the cat and to it hang a small metal charm associated with luck, such as a four-leaf clover. Enchant the cat on a Sunday when the moon is full or nearly full. Say: ‘I name you my good luck cat and charge you to attract the best that can happen in all things.’ 

The one I made has a green ribbon rather than a yellow one, as green can symbolise money and I wanted to good fortune in that sense too. It’s fine to adapt spells you find in books or online to suit your own needs.
You can find my books, including Pagan Portals – Poppets and Magical Dolls, in the following shops and online stores:
