If you’re not sipping your hot pumpkin spice latte from this Starbucks Black Cat Mug while you watch the fall foliage outside then you’re not enjoying the autumn to the fullest.

Shaped like the head of a cute kitty, its ominous matte-black color and orange details represent the true colors of autumn and Halloween. Hence, no other cups can portray fall and spooky seasons than this one.
Black cats have long been symbols of Halloween but how did their special place in the spooky season came to be? Since ancient times, dark-colored felines were believed to be bringers of bad luck. Their association with evil omens and black magic also gave rise to the superstition that they were supernatural servants to witches. Considering all these harrowing affiliations, inky kitties have been generally linked with Halloween due to the spook they conjure in us. Of course, all of these are nothing but baseless myths. But having them as classic symbols of Halloween makes the spooky holiday even more exciting.
