The Black Cat


When I was younger, I liked to go 'under the cocoa' (Creole Engish-Back Yard Garden). I still do. There are many trees up there, but there is one that blossoms very often, twice yearly. This is the plum tree. I love plums.

One day I went to pick some, I think it was a Sunday and plum season was coming to an end. I pick what I could and ate them on the tree. When I came down I saw a black cat. I never saw a cat so black in my life, it did not even have speck of white or any other colour, just completely black.

When I saw it, I said "Oh no" because I knew if my three beautiful cats saw that black cat, it could be dead meat, so I threw a stone at it to frighten it away and make it run off for its own safety, but in return, I was the one that got frightened. When I threw the stone at it, it ran into the bushes so I waited to see if it would come out to frighten it again, but instead, the stone I threw was thrown back behind me. I ran down to my house in fright.

Luckily, the house was close, so I did not fall while running to break anything. Was the stone really thrown by the cat? I may never know. But I know it was not someone, because the bushes were to thick, and even if it was I would have seen them.

The three cats I use to own died, but and one of them was older than me. It was a year older than me. It died at the age of 11. The other two cats was its sons. I can not remember when they died. I have two cats now, they are the descendants of the three that died. May 16th is one of my cat's birthday, it will be three and my cousin's birth is two days after.

I say I have to agree with PK, if it was the cat you did bring it on yourself, but maybe something else might have been there. 😊

Dear Elahie,

Well, your story reminded me of the phrase "Do unto others, what you want others to do unto you". You should not have done that. I had the a similar experience. Back when I was in Sk, I threw rocks at an old acacia tree. For some reason while I was returning to my car, I sustained a large cut on my hand.

Teachers in my school used to tell me a spirit lived there, but as an Sk, I did not listen to their advice.

Your story was frightening and a tad funny indeed. Thank you for sharing your story with us. God bless you and take care.

Hello Elahie. Interesting story! I used to have a SOLID black cat before, no other color on this black feline. This cat was lovely! It was a very laid-back good cat, never caused any trouble or concern. So I really don't know why it is so surprising to you that there wasn't another color, other than black, on this cat. I know that in other country's they have these superstitions and stories that are passed down from generation to generation. I hardly think that the cat threw a stone at you. Do you think that you were hallucinating or maybe caused this rock to be thrown at you? Was it another persons property that you were trespassing on? Maybe the feline was the spirit/ghost of a descendant that was trying to scare you or did not like you on the property and they were in disguise as the black cat. Who knows for sure. Thanks for sharing this odd story.

Excuse me Elahie.
rjwolf93~ Where in the world did you hear that black cats are familiars? Oh yes, a friend of yours. I have NEVER heard of anything of the sort and I believe your friend was or is misinformed and shouldn't be telling such tales. You were correct in saying "supposedly the are called familiars", supposedly is the right word.


❤ 😊
