  4. 4.  Animals were observed and assigned to supernatural statuses fitting their nature  Dogs: Because of their ability to find dead things, then consume them, they were able to sense ghosts; they became the guardians between the world of the living and the dead  Cats: Egypt associated them with healing, thus sorcery; they have dual personalities so can be dangerous (used in spells to curse others); Nordic: Freyja (health, love, healing) had a chariot drawn by cats; eventually became associated with the demonic by medieval Christianity  Rodents: West: Associated with plague (Apollo, god of plague, mice), Black Death East: Intelligence, movement (Ganesh’s vehicle), food bringer (China and Japan).
  5. 5.  Cat.  Black cat: Europe, good luck. America, bad luck. Killing a cat means to bring disaster. If a cat left the home, disaster is about to strike.  Dog.  OK, unless howling at the moon as you go by.  Hare.  Bad luck if one crosses your path.  Hedgehog.  Good fortune, especially if you meet one going in the opposite direction.  Horse.  Piebald is a good omen. But if you see its tail first, then bad luck will befall a friend.  Mouse or Rat:  A white or brown mouse is good luck, especially in love. Grey mouse = bad luck.White rat is good luck, black rat is bad luck.
