Is a white cat lucky or not lucky?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Well, it really depends on if you believe they do or not. I mean, if I were a cat, red or any other color, I wouldn't want to bring good luck to someone who just shooed me away or scoffed at me. Since I'm a cat lover, I believe that all cats are good luck if you take care of them and love them.

Why isn't the tiger the king of the jungle?

User Avatar

Asked by Kara White

well, who said Tiger isn't called King of the Jungle, in my opinion, since both Lion and Tiger are virtually the same, built from the same essential hardware, both are equally fit for the title, majestic looks, dignified, insanely bulky, their roar that is capable of terrifying everything in the jungle, heavily armed, too powerful for their size, their role in their respective habitats and 250 kilos of pure muscle and power, and that makes them perfectly fit for the role..

Hope this works.
