by Edgar Allan Poe

The black cat is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe first published in 1843 in The Saturday Evening Post.

The story is about a black cat that is owned by a man who is an alcoholic. The man's wife does not like the cat and she tries to get rid of it. The man gets angry and kills the cat. He feels guilty and is haunted by the cat's ghost.

The main themes are the dangers of alcohol, the consequences of violence and the power of guilt.

"For the most wild, yet most homely narrative which I am about to pen, I neither expect nor solicit belief. Mad indeed would I be to expect it in a case where my very senses reject their own evidence".
