Cardinal Richelieu had a jet black cat called Lucifer, while Charles 1 had a black cat called Luck who died the day before he was arrested. The witch’s companion, the black cat is supposed to bring luck (unless you’re Charles 1). Some people believe black cats to be witches incarnate and they were often used as familiars. Isaac Newton’s cat Spitface interrupted him so frequently wanting to be let out that he was forced to invent the catflap.
