Over the weekend, I watched the deliciously creepy The Black Cat (1934), starring both Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. In the movie, Bela Lugosi’s character, Dr. Vitus Werdegast, has such an intense fear of black cats that he completely freaks out whenever one crosses his path.
As someone who loves cats of all shapes, sizes and colors, I can’t really relate to the doctor’s fear, but watching the movie did get me thinking about black cats. So, naturally, I started looking around for black cat-themed paper goods, and I came across this awesome screenprint by Strawberry Luna. Hmm, I wonder if a bespectacled kitty would scare the good doctor as much as non-glasses-wearing black cats did?
