Is a black cat always considered unlucky?
If you hold certain superstitions then yes they are considered unlucky. However, in certain countries they are considered differently. In Britain, if a black cat is crossing the road or entering your home this is considered good fortune. In Yorkshire, fishermen's wives keep black cats at their home to ensure that their husbands will return safely home from their voyages out to see. In Southern England, a black cat crossing the bath of a bride is believed to bring a fortunate marriage.
