Black cat are often considered as a symbol of evil omens and associated with witches and black magic. It is widely believed that black cat bring bad luck (e.g. when black cat crossing your path). However, the preternatural powers ascribed to black cats are frequently viewed positively, for example by seamen considering a ship's cat in general and a black one especially as luck for their ship. Such superstitions have caused special attention to black cats in culture: literature, films and, of course, fine art. Many gifted artists devoted their paintings to enigmatic and mysterious black cats. Popular names for black cats are Blackie, Ninja, Ebony, Panther, Enigma.
