Big Black Cats……….

Just what is it with big black cats?     Marauding night hunters, wild, dangerous, responsible for the disappearance of family pets and highly skilled at evading cameras.  People see them everywhere and there are reports of sightings in many countries but little compelling photographic evidence.

The most recent BCE  (Black Cat  Event) in Wales has the police out on the moors with hunting rifles and the big cats are said to be descendants of circus animals that were released in the 1970s.    Big cats don’t breed as prolifically as rabbits or rats but after 40 years I’d have expected them to be spotted on a regular basis not just from time to time, or when the media is running short of sensational news……

I, of course, have another theory.     Humans are afraid of the dark and associate blackness with bad news or evil happenings.  This is as old as time  and stems from the fact that Homo Stupidus can’t see in the dark and therefore are frightened by it.

The  Jungian theory of the  Collective Unconscious  supports my argument and that is why these black cat sightings occur in so many places.       All humans have a deep seated fear of ferocious animals.   Humans have a deep seated fear of the unknown and of the dark and blackness.    Therefore, humans are afraid of Big Black Cats.

It couldn’t be simpler.    If humans were more like cats and could see in the dark, Big Black Cat Events would probably cease.

What do you think, am I miaowing up the wrong tree?
