Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
It is the year of the Pig apparently. This means nothing to me as it doesn't involve siamese cats, or me.
Here is a picture of London during Chinese new year. The human slaves sometimes go to Chinatown in London and they love it. They have never seen it as decorated as this picture but hope to one day.
Enough about that, let's talk about me again. Am I not the most perfect feline specimen to ever grace the earth?
Here is a list of cat superstitions that I found whilst surfing the Internet. They all seem rather strange to me and not particularly logical. I wonder how many human slaves are bound by their superstitious beliefs? Perhaps it is for this reason they are such easy fodder for becoming slaves to their felines! Stupid humans!

Dreaming of white cat means good luck. - American superstition

To see a white cat on the road is lucky. - American superstition

It is bad luck to see a white cat at night. - American superstition

If a cat washes behind its ears, it will rain. - English superstition

A strange black cat on your porch brings prosperity. - Scottish superstition

A cat sneezing is a good omen for everyone who hears it. - Italian superstition

A cat sleeping with all four paws tucked under means cold weather ahead. - English superstition

When moving to a new home, always put the cat through the window instead of the door, so that it will not leave. - American superstition

When you see a one-eyed cat, spit on your thumb, stamp it in the palm of your hand, and make a wish. The wish will come true. - American superstition

In the Netherlands, cats were not allowed in rooms where private family discussions were going on. The Dutch believed that cats would definitely spread gossips around the town. - Netherlands superstition

To reverse the bad luck curse of a black cat crossing your path, first walk in a circle, then go backward across the spot where it happened and count to 13.

Ok - so Ghost is lucky on the road or in dream but bad luck at night. Plus she can make your wish come true... She is white & one-eyed. Sounds like the humans here in America need to get over the stupidstitions.
