They say you should never cross a black cat. Well, anyone who happened to stumble upon this scene in Hollywood, 1961, was in for one hell of a fright, or thirty. Yup, there’s more black cats here than you can poke a leash at. But interesting is the age range of the pets’ owners. Hard to imagine a comparative scene these days. [Photos via LIFE and Retronaut]
