When she isn't outside, Indy often sits next to a window or door patrolling the meadow. She used to go ballistic at any intruder but we've worked on it and now she usually just barks until I come to check on what is happening. It might be a fox, coyote, bear, skunk, woodchuck, or turkey but usually it's deer. Today it was something I didn't immediately recognize until it raised it's head and I saw the yellow eyes. Nothing but a cat looks like that. I'm not superstitious about this day nor about black cats - though it looks like it was probably a bad day for some field mouse.
