Sensibilize the people! Stop cruelties against animals! 
 
 Mistreating animals - mainly cats - is due to myths and superstitions! 
 
  • Many animals are sometimes tortured by human beings just by cruelty and  sometimes it's due to myths or superstitions.  Cats are the  most victims of mistreatments, cruelties of all kinds, practiced by human beings that forget that the poor animals feel pain and sadness like we do. 
  • The origin of beliefs as those ones come from barbaric habits of the antiquity, also adopted in the Medium Age, when many women classified as witches were condemned to burn in bonfires, togheter with their dogs and cats that were also "convicts" and sacrificed. 
  • According to the popular tradition, here are some of those myths and superstitions:
    • "Cats have seven lives". Perhaps that myth is due to the fact that cats have extraordinary reflexes and balances and get rid of very easily dangerous situations.
    • "Black cats give bad luck". That is just a foolishness and, unhappily, it reveals prejudice. 
    • Cuting a piece of the black cat's ear is good to do black magic or sorcery". It's a tradition among a few Brazilian people to use a piece of the black cat's ear to practice black sorcery. It is a cruelty, a vile act. 
     
                         Here is a suggestion of the macabre humor: if somebody needs an ear to do black magic or sorcery, why doesn't he use the his own?    
     
            Unhappily, the humanity material progress not always has generated the moral progress and nowadays  there are still some people that live with their head back in the Medium Age, practicing cruelties against defenseless beings.
