Harmon the Black Cat Finds a Loving Home at Last

Harmon, a striking black cat with captivating eyes, has found a new home. Initially discovered as a stray, Harmon’s past remains a mystery. Despite attempts to locate his previous owners, he remained unclaimed and spent over a month at the shelter. However, Harmon’s luck took a positive turn when Kyla, a shelter employee, expressed interest in adopting him after a brief interaction.

Harmon the Black Cat

The shelter’s staff often grapple with the age-old superstition surrounding black cats, a myth that dates back to the 13th century. This unfounded belief labels them as harbingers of bad luck, leading to lower adoption rates for these felines, especially around Halloween. Contrary to this misconception, various cultures have regarded black cats as symbols of good fortune. English sailors, for instance, believed that keeping a black cat contented would ensure favorable weather during their voyages. Similarly, wives believed that a black cat in the household would guarantee their husbands’ safe return.
