Supernatural Advisory #093: Black Cats

Exercise extreme caution around black cats or unfortunate circumstances may follow.

CONTEXT

A father and son were traveling on a moonless night when a black cat appeared on the side of the road. Aware of the superstition about a black cat crossing one’s path, they pelted the cat with rocks, forcing it to retreat into the home of a woman accused of being a witch.

The next day, the woman was limping and bruised, confirming that witches can turn into black cats at night.

FIELD NOTES

lyrics

My thoughts are razor sharp
Juggling with mental knives
A shadow crosses me
There in the flesh
One of the devil’s spies

A monster roams the streets
Out on the prowl again
Behold the lioness
Dark as the night
Hunting the land of men

Silent princess goddess of myth
Savage feral demon in disguise
You cut me off from heaven
Fearless with nine lives to one of mine
Brimming with life
Master of death

My wounds are indistinct
Prophecy leaves no sign
Let’s get this over with
Staring at clocks
Dying to pass the time

Witchcraft crescent omen legend

Why bother with revenge?
You always land on your feet
Misfortune lines my path
Hissing at rats
Here in the catbird seat
