Make Friday the 13th a lucky day for this cute black cat, Chase.

Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day in Western superstition, but you could make it a lucky day for this black cat.

According to folklorists, there is no written evidence for a ‘Friday the 13th’ superstition before the 19th century.

The earliest known documented reference in English occurs in Henry Sutherland Edwards’ 1869 biography of Gioachino Rossini, who died on a Friday 13th.*

Though the origins of this much maligned day are unclear, it would appear that the number 13 may just be the odd man out and it might be time to turn the tide, and what better way to do that than explode another superstitious myth – Black Cats.

Today is the chance for a human to be very lucky and in the process change the luck of another beating heart.

Chase is a beautiful black one-year-old boy who arrived at the Pets For Life Animal Shelter via the Billinudgel Vet Clinic.

Chase is just recovering from a small surgery and is currently on a special diet and medication – he is exceptionally friendly and smoochy and an almost guaranteed luck bringer.

If you would like to meet Chase and change your luck by inviting him to your forever home, or for more information about the Pets For Life Animal Shelter phone 0403 533 589.
