House Initiation / Polish Custom:
Put a cat in a house before you move into it and there will always be good luck.
A neighbor came over to borrow our cat for one of their relatives who had just bought a new house. These relatives of ournaighbors had just recently come over from Poland. I don't know the people's names and the neighbor doesn't live around here any more.
