Animal Spirit Totem – Cat

Post image for Animal Spirit Totem – Cat

Animal spirit totems are all around us. I personally draw cats like Catwoman. Cats, as most of us know, were held in high regard in ancient Egypt. Maybe lesser known stories come from Scandinavian lore in the form of Freyja, goddess of fertility, and Hindu traditions with Shasthi, the goddess of childbirth, as well. Cats are also commonly associated with curiosity, independence, unpredictability and nine lives. They are also associated with healers and healing. Their purring is on a healing frequency so they can actually heal themselves, or us, by purring. We all have heard of the witches “familiar” which is a spirit in the form of a black cat. For the record, I have found that my own cats aid tremendously when I am giving psychic readings. Their purr and the calm energy brings balance to the reading environment. Cats are also nocturnal. Because to humans the dark is the holder of fears, the cat has taken on the mystery and the magic of nighttime and darkness.

A few things that are not well known about the Cat is that they help us with meditation. They also assist us in our dreams. Cats love to sleep with humans. Part of that is because they are dreaming with us and being our lovely assistants. We also forget about the Cat’s ability to fight when cornered or challenged.

If you find that your Animal Spirit Totem is the Cat, take a look at these traits and see how the Cat is teaching you. Do you see magic and mystery around you? An Animal Spirit Totem reading could help show you clearly what animals are helping you right now.

Yesterday, a black/white pet cat was following me and my kids. We would try to shoo it away; but, it would not budge. It continued to follow us and even tried to come rub against me. I am highly allergic to cats.

What does this mean?

Hey Thalassa – I wrote an article about cats a while back – click here to see it. Does that help?

Hi Elizabeth,
It kindof helps in a sense; but, I did not feel like this cat was trying to aid me…The vibe from this particular cat made me feel uncomfortable.

Reply

Elizabeth October 31, 2011 at 9:18 pm

If you felt uncomfortable, then you have to face / deal with your fears that the cat brings up:
Independence
Seeing the unseen
Protection
Love
Allows us to dream its dreams
Assists in meditation
Ability to fight when cornered

Which one / how many of these is your trigger point?

Reply

Thalassa November 1, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Seeing the unseen, protection, and maybe love.

Hi for a few months now i have been woken by what i thought was spirit (as in person)although i never saw anything just felt it sitting on my bed which i have to say scared me a little ,
last night the same thing happened but as i sat upright in bed for a nano second i saw a (cat In spirit )was sitting on my bed then disappeared , i have never owned a cat before so i just dont understand why this cat is coming to me
If i hadnt felt something sitting on my bed before i would believe it was just a dream but im convinced of what i saw .
Im a little worried is this a good omen or bad ,
Please could any1 help me with a little advice on wether i should be worried or not
Thank you ..

Elizabeth January 28, 2012 at 8:28 am

Carla, I can understand your fear / concern. We always have spirits, of all kinds, around us. Most of the time you aren’t aware and / or don’t see them. When you are in that waking / sleeping state, your human mind is the quietest. So you are more aware of the SPIRITUAL side around you. The cat was not a bad omen. Cats are protective and watch over us as we meditate and sleep. The cat is a protector. It will never harm you.

Thanks.

Ever since I was little I always loved cats. If I found a stray or a hurt one, I would bring it home and take care of it. I’ve always been attracted to tigers and black panthers in particular.Lately
I have been dreaming a lot about cats. In one dream there was a black cat just staring at me.
In another a cat jumped in the air and caught a bird. The third one I was swimming in a lake of blood with a black panther sitting on the edge and it started licking me in the face. What does this mean?

Reply

Elizabeth February 27, 2012 at 12:19 am

Brittany … cats are one of your totems for sure. Blood symbolizes life … and a lick in the face from a cat means “you are my family” …. the cat (physical and / or spiritual) will always provide you strength/wisdom for your entire life.

Hi all,

Today I was going to the garage late at night, my friend was stood by the open front door. When I came out of the garage I saw a black and white cat sitting in the middle of the road directly opposite my house, looking at me. I walked on to see that the cat had disappeared. I called to my friend and looked down the road, again it was there, perfectly still and calm just looking at me. I told my friend and she said that she saw nothing despite being on the lookout.

Can anyone explain this to me and what it may mean or symbolise?

Many thanks.

This cat showed up to assure that you are loved by Spirit. It actually wanted you to see it. It also is here to help you make the decisions you have to make…that are in the grey area. Life isn’t always black and white.

I just got off a call with a friend who advised i take time in planning to end a marriage (long story, I have much trepidation.. but plan on doing so m just not sure when so many ducks to line up, etc) anyway I saw a black cat (always have seen them as good luck ha) literally beeline towards me and then roll on her back and loll in the sun at my feet. She let me pet her too (no tags but she is a stray) Later she hissed at my daughter who tried to return to her (she retreated to a new spot) but I was super excited by her attention and unabashed affection. Would this mean something perhaps? Nice website, thank you.

Lately there have been quite a few occasions where I’ve found myself wanting to be closer to nature and the living world, and so I’ve started to research things to help me. I took several totem tests and found that my life totem is definitely a cat, or member of the family. I want to find out how to embrace this totem, could you help me?

Today is a black cat day for our family. We lost our black cat Magic around Halloween. We are heartbroken. This morning my daughter wakes up with a dream about the cat and he had red eyes. She said I told her he has pink eye. Then Meditation, a facebook site, sent a photo that said Black Cat with cat eyes making up the c’s. Clever. When I closed the page my desktop photo was Magic the cat. Then on the way home from dropping off the kids to school, there was a cat cloud with it’s back arched. It really has my attention and not sure what is going on. I half expected to find our cat today.

Well, I’ve never owned a cat before, but the strangest thing happened last night. I woke up in the late night around 5:30am and headed down to my kitchen, when I saw a black and white cat. The Cat quickly went through the kitchen door into the rest of the house as I was going after it, It was dark, and I saw it going up the stairs until I switched the lights on and it disappeared. I told myself to sleep, and look for the cat in the morning. The cat is no where to be seen and I’ve yet to find it. Currently these are hard times for me and I’ve been on a mental and emotional roller coaster and I’m really curious as to what this means?

Hey,
I have loved cats since I as far back as I can remember. There isn’t a cat I have met that doesn’t like me, and I am often told by many who both know me and those that don’t that my personallity is that of a cat. About seven years ago my only male cat Tiger died. Months afterwords I was going to bed and there beside me under the covers it was like something was under the blanket with me. When I put my hand there it was freezing cold, and the first thing to come to my mind was ‘Tiger’. I affectionately told him to get out of me room and it went away. My friend who clames to see spirit animals has told my that my spirit animal is a cat, but I want to see that for my self.

Elizabeth June 4, 2012 at 6:46 am

Can you “see”? I can’t “see”. I can sense and feel and hear but I can’t see. I like it that way. I am not sure I want to see all these beings moving around me. Sensing and hearing is PLENTY! Not every one can “see”. You “knew” instantly it was Tiger. Your first thought after “WHAT IS THAT????” was “Tiger”. THAT is confirmation!

Reply

C April 11, 2014 at 5:23 pm

Yes. seeing is frightening (so I hear.. a friend ‘saw’ a face staring at her (and nothing else) as she awoke (and yelled) the face went into the closet. Oh no. I have seen orbs (one blue large one coming at me, and another white one) in my parents’ old home. And seen an outline of a man in my room as a 6 year old at night. But thank god I cannot as neat as it sounds.
As for hearing I have a question: I have heard single words (a few times humming , as did my son so he confirmed it) but that is all. Any way to make it more and not one word blurbs? It’s frustrating as I am left wondering ‘the heck do I do with that?’ I always acknowledge pleasantly if I do, however. Might as well be polite.

I’m quite sure, no i am sure that my main totem is a Cat.. a while ago i could see the black shape of a cat in the corner of my eye and at two incidents i heard the sound of paws landing on the shelfs of my desk and something jumping down from the roof outside the house behind me, i could feel the impact of the landings too, but there was nothing there i could see.. now i have seen wierd lights and blue sparks above my head,but that’s a different thing i think hehe.. but i wonder if that cat is/was trying to tell me something important?? almost everytime i think of my totem i’m about to cry for no particular reason at all ..

Elizabeth July 24, 2012 at 8:52 am

Only you can hear your messages Camilla. When you heard the paws, when you saw the shadow, where were you in your headspace? What was going on in your life? Look at the traits of the cat and see what you “learned” in that moment.

Hi, I was having complete and total breakdown this late afternoon–still grieving the infidelity that my husband confessed to 6 months ago. I’ve been devastated and today was having a bad day and asked someone…God….whoever to listen to me and help me regain clarity and healing. I walk downstairs and there is this black and white cat laying on our porch out of the blue. Coincidence, a message, I don’t know. I read other people’s posts about black and white cats so wanted to chime in.
Thanks for listening…

I’ve always been sure that my spirit animal was a cat. I’m very observant and I love solitude, and my friends tell me that my actions always seem unpredictable to them. I have always had a strong connection with cats, but recently I’ve started seeing cats that aren’t really there. I’ve seen one about 4 times so far. She is usually sitting and watching me very intently, but the last few times she has walked away and then turned her head back and meowed (I can’t hear it, but I can see it) as if to say follow me. I’m always very comforted when I see her, but I’m not really sure what all of this means. Any help would be appreciated

I think my spirit animal/guide is the cat because I was thinking about how it would be nice to know what my spirit guide was and suddenly Blizzard, a cat who does not particularly like me, suddenly stood up from sleeping and rubbed against me. Then, I went down stairs and Mulligan, another cat, ran past me at top speed. When I reached the bottom of the stairs and realized I had forgotten something and turned around to go back Mulligan had a look of “Why aren’t you following me?” On his face. Do you think cats are my spirit guides?

Hi,
There is this white cat who came to my house. It first came around 5 weeks ago but then left after few days later. 2 days ago, it came to my house again. I initially thought that they were 2 different cats because they have such different energies.

When the cat first came 5 weeks ago, I felt that it was wise and was an adult cat. But now when it came 2 days ago, I felt that it is young and is innocent. Therefore I got confused and thought that they were 2 different cats.

An energy healer told me that its energy seems different to me because its perception of me has changed. Can someone explain what this mean? Does this mean that it now thinks that I’m wiser compared to 5 weeks ago when we first met? Hope so. =)

Hello,

For the past couple of months i have been followed home or to the shops/families houses by different cats, they are usually black and white. Iv alwayd been curious about cats and have always felt calm around them. I tend to attract them to me even if their not fans of people, althought i am more of a dog person and have always had dogs as pets. Could it be that the cats are trying to tell me something? Could they be my spirit guide?

Last night while I was struggling to get to sleep I felt a cat jump onto my bed and pad towards me. I have several cats so this is normal, however the only cat in my bedroom currently is my new girl who is skiddy and getting acclimated. I opened my eyes and came face to face with a white cat. I realized at once this was not my new Flame point Mao Lynn. After spotting the cat it instantly disappeared. This same sequence was repeated twice more before I finally settled into sleep. I am sure the number of times have significance. I already know I have a connection to cats, I feel my home is incomplete if I don’t have them around. I have several statues to Bast and a myriad of other cat items throughout my house including the two lynxes by my bed that represent my dream keeper totem of Lynx. So here I am trying to put the pieces together.

I have always been as my mother calls it the cat whisperer. They just love me but as a child i remember seeing a white cat ghost spirit that would appear to me when in bed and then also in one picture it appeared to be wrapped around my legs. I have recently turned to wicca and have been speaking with several people and they say its my familiar but then lastnight i was speaking with a friend an i was afraid i had a spirit in my house and it was frightening my daughter and i was discussing the issue with him an he claims to be an energy reader and able to see the spirits around him and people. But he said all he could see was negative energy and my familiar and that my familiar is a tiger? What is that even supposed to mean? I dont know if you can help me but i really am curious and if anyone i assume you would be the one who could tell me :-)

Kim … I’m not a Wiccan and don’t know much about Wiccan practices except for what my Wiccan friends have shared with me. Just whip yourself up a white witch spell of protection. As far as the friend and the negative energy …. maybe all he sees anywhere is negative? Cleanse yourself, your space, your daughter, her space, etc. You know the deal if you’ve been studying Wiccan.

Okay sorry the dream I was a black panther and I was laying down with my cubs and the only thought i had was i need to protect them. that is all i can recall from the dream and I didn’t know if i should take it as i need to protect my kids or just an over all conformation that panther is my totem?

Hi,
I’ve always loved cats. In fact, we have four of them at the moment (there were more but, they had kittens so we had to find another home since our family was getting too big.^^ ) I get along better with cats than I do other animals and they seem to calm me more. My closest cat, Jinx, is a pure black cat with green eyes that almost match mine. When i was younger, our dog Susie ran into the garage and was the one who brought the small black kitten into the house. We didn’t really know what to do with it but Halloween was right aroudn the corner and we didn’t what it to get hurt, so we kept it. Jinx has been with me for nearly twelve years now. He brings me “presents” and won’t eat them unless I stop by and pet him and say “thank you”. I can sort of tell something more is going on here, but I just really wanted to be sure.
Thank you

Can a person have 2 animal totems? The reason I ask is I believe I have both the cat and the kingfisher. The cat is the daily constant presence in my life and I feel as if my own cat and ones in my past were looking out for me. My own cat is more like a guard dog than a cat at times and I trust her instinct 100%. But over the years whenever things feel crazy in my life a lone kingfisher will appear on my fence or washing line and I am drawn to it. I will watch it till it flies away. I feel like it has a significant part to play.

Hi,

I’ve been seeing a black cat with a white diamond shape on its neck on and off the past several months. The first time I saw it, it was near my car then a couple of days later it was sitting in the hood of my car with its three kittens playing around it (I have three kids). It looked at me so intently that I was scared because it was like a human looking at me. Then it disappeared for awhile only to have the same cat reappear in different places but usually around my home. Just today, however, I saw the same cat walk in front of our car, stop in the middle of the street, look at me and my daughter and walk away. It’s always the same black cat with a white diamond shape on its neck. What does this mean? I’m not usually afraid of cats just scared or worried because I don’t know if it’s warning me that something dangerous or tragic is about to happen (my family superstition is that if you seen one, you are going to die) or what I’d like to believe is that it’s just reminding me to be strong. What do you think? Thanks!

Hey there! First let me say, that I can sense and see spirits, even though i just realized my gift not too long ago, and Im not very strong yet, But tonight when i was sitting downstairs in the basement, i saw this little kitten sitting on my foot, she looked right at me. She was a black kitten. I started to think of all the cats i had. I only had one pure black cat, but it was a male, not a female. I currently have three cats in my house atm. My cat that recently passed away, that is a orange tabby and the other belongs to my brother’s gf. I am just wondering, why this cat came to me, when i dont know who she is? Also she kept licking my shoe and then fell asleep. She is currently under my blanket on the chair by my legs. What does this mean?

Hi!

So today I had a horrible fight with my little sister and mother who both stated that they never wanted to see me again. This fight was all over a misunderstanding of many years of sad feelings that my mother never really loved me and that my younger sister was and always has been my mother’s favorite child (it’s just the two of us girls). My mother and sister said really mean things to me. I was so upset I drove to my grandmother’s house for comfort and direction. When I left her house in the parking lot was a black and white cat that walked right up to me and purred and rubbed against me and followed me to my car.I felt better that instant. But what does it mean?

I’m very confused and I need help, please.

I was born on 7/27/95 (Sun, Moon, & Mercury signs are Leo). (I’m not sure if astrology is associated with this or not) My Mother knew I was a Leo so she would buy my Lion related things as a child. I’ve always kind have been obsessed with cat’s (lions, leopards, tigers, house-cats) but I’m also allergic.

I’ve had many cat’s as pets throughout my life. I’ve even took care of a stray that would come and feed off of our garbage. She only came around once in a while, not too often. I later had found out that she was pregnant. She gave birth to her kittens on my front porch and none of them lived & she just left them there. Every cat of mine that has had a kitten had one or more of them die. I’m not sure what this means but I hope that someone could give me an answer.

What I’m saying is that I’m not sure whether or not this is my totem. I feel like it is but at the same time I’m unsure. How do I find this out?

Elizabeth December 17, 2012 at 12:02 am

Im a security guard in a remote camp in North Dakota. I work midnights and when i first started. I was visited by a large all black cat with bright yellow eyes. It would sit for hours staring at me on my guard shack. Everytime i came out and said kitty it would meow. Softly and ina calm manner. Keeping its distance but still very curious. As i fed it. It became close to me. Still keeping distance not letting me touch it. But it comes and goes. Today, an all white cat with almost blacked out eyes came . Sits in the same spot and stares the same way. But no meows. And VERY distant. I tried to feed it as well but it does not like to be seen or come close at all. The black and white cat seem to alter shofts of coming and going. When one isnt here. The other is. They seem to stalk me and watch me constantly. Im a big believer in suspiction,but i do not know what tothink of thos. I mean, what are thw odds that two pure colorderd cats come like this. Can you enlighten me please

That’s pretty common cat behavior. :) You gave Momma a place to be pregnant and food and water. She’ll have her babies somewhere around your place and when they’re ready to eat, they’ll come eat with Momma. Cats are pack animals.

I m confused. One night, as i used to feel lonely n love solitude,i lay on my bed n covered my face with blanket.suddenly i feel like dreaming but im sure i was not.i could feel n hear every thing. I saw a very old dried tree at a cliff. A boy was weeping under that tree. The tree laughed making loud sound. It had sharp tree n big big eyes. The boy asked the tree why he was laughing n it asked him in return why he was weeping. He told that he missed his mom so dearly. Then the tree gifted him a flute and told him that it has the power to awake the nature. Then told him that you r no more alone.” i was even more shocked to realise how the feelings n story of that boy completely matched with me. Not lying then i used to lonely n solitude though i had frns. I use to think my mom is not my real mom.my real mom is dead n i am orphan. I dont know why i feel so. I used to cry alone in dark missing my dead mom n singing in her name. But my mom is not dead in real. I just dont know what had happend to me. I m a girl but i used to feel like if i am gay because my emotions totally matched with boys n i was attracted towards girls.in dream i used to see myself as a boy n so many girls were ready to die for my sake in my love. Is it because of my moon in 8th house. Can it be that that boy whom i saw crying was me indeed n can it be that the old dried tree was my life frn i meam totem.can a tree be a spirit guide.plz help me frn….n next thing i always tried to get out of my job just to miss that tree in solitary. N whenever i imagine of sitting under the shadow of old tree i forget my every pain n tears i just feel so relief n peace under its shadow in imagination n dream( but i see vivid dreams n imagination n often feel they were true n real)

Last week I visited Hawaii for the first time. When we arrived at the condo parking lot, an old all white cat appeared and went on it’s way. I expected to see it again during my stay of a week, but I never did. No one else in my group ever saw the cat. On my last day of the trip, at the Honolulu airport, I was strolling the garden in the outdoor space of the terminal, and a light orange cat crossed my path and ran amongst some plants out of reach. I spent some time trying to get it to come to me, but it stayed about 4 ft away just looking at me. I went inside, and I asked the ticket agent if it was usual for cats to be in the garden, and she said it was highly unusual. So a white cat never to be seen again on my first day of the trip and a light orange on the very last day. No other cats seen in between. Any thoughts on this?

Cats were trying to get your attention obviously and it worked. You would want to go look at the list of traits that the cat holds and teaches and see if any of them resonate with you and your Hawaii trip and what went on during it.

Love your site. I adore cats, always have and have been through a rough time recently which resulted in me contacting a medium whose words helped me regain my strength and gave me comfort. She speaks of animal totems and I thought I would begin looking out for signs. I have noticed lots of cats recently and today saw a white tortoiseshell being hit by a car. I saw the cat between the wheels tumbling onto the pavement away from further danger but I’m not sure sure if it had been fataly hurt or not. It was another car on the other side of the carriageway that hit it and I wanted to stop but didn’t. My husband told me there would be nothing I could do and I now feel bad about not turning back and helping. Just wondered what you thought. x

I know this thread is regarding cats, however my main totem is a tiger her name is Lygra, a couple of nights ago while I was meditating a Panther approached me and presented himself as a totem of mine, i cant remember his name but he has been following me since. My question is; can someone hold two feline totems.. As part of their 7 core totems or is said panther only assisting me at this point in time?

Thanks in advanced

I would need to do a reading to find out, Jonathan, however…we all have one main totem. We also get teaching totems as we need them. I would appear that the panther is here as a teaching guide. We can be working with a few animals at a time, depending on what’s going on in our lives.

Last night I had a dream and in that dream I was sleeping and woke up to find a black cat sleeping next to me with my arms around her and strangely I wasn’t surprised to see her or to feel her it felt as if she was attached to me I looked to see where she came from and I found that the window in my room was open.. a while later it felt like I wanted her to leave but she didn’t want to.. do you have any idea what this could mean.. thank you

Hello, I stumbled upon your website while trying tobetter understand a dream I had the other night. In this dream there was a cat, I haven’t determined the breed, but it was 2-3x larger than a house cat, black with some white spots, and very sleek, streamlined like an african serval. Anyway in this dream the cat (she, I don’t know how I know I just do) was nipping at my heels whenever I ignored her, it didn’t hurt, not really, just enough to be annoying and I didn’t know what she wanted because she wouldn’t allow me to pet her or anything, she was wild but insisted on following me. Also in the dream was a falcon or hawk, not a very large bird, but he followed the cat and harrassed her whenever she wasn’t keeping her guard up. He never hert her, and I was grateful for the intervention because it granted me some moments of being able to walk in peace. As I traveled, sometimes the two would squabble and almost play, but always the cat followed me and the raptor followed her. We came to an abandoned trailer park, and I went inside, it was night time as soon as I started going through a little tunnel-like gate gate way to enter where this place was. There were hundreds of skunks and other wild creatures that as soon as I passed them, they followed after me, but they were hungry. In body aas well as in spirit, and they followed me almost like a cult, coralling me into this fenced in area where they locked me in. The hawk was gone, but the cat came with me, and I was scrambling to find a way out of this cage. The skunks (there were other animals there too like rats and such, but I most clearly remember the skunks) wanted something from me, I don’t know exactly what it was, but I know it had something to do with worship and I kept stalling them by telling them that I needed to make sure I had the proper blessings before I did what they wanted me to do, like I was to be a sacrifice or something for them to their god(dess). I found a way out, but the cat could not make it out that way (she talked to me at that point) and she offered to stay while I escaped but I couldn’t let her do that, so I broke a hole in the fence so she could slip out, and I climbed over. We stcarted running and the cult of animals followed us, some of them surprisingly fast, but the cat in my dream warned me to keep running and not worry about her, I ignored her and scooped her into my arms and ran for a while unti some of the animals started catching up, then she lept from my arms and nipped at their heels, distracting the closest ones and drawing them away. That is where the dream ended. I had been apprehensive about the cat in the beginning but by the end she was like my treasured friend and I wanted to protect her as much as she wanted to protect me. Oh, she didn’t want to go into the trailer park, but she did it because I was I

Lately for the past few days(after I got really intrested in trying to find out what my spirit animal is) this cat has been following me to and from school. I go the same way every day and this cat has just been sitting in the middle of the sidewalk each time. Then as soon as I get close to it it starts rolling around and rubbing against me.

Hi Elizabeth. I’m new to totem animals and the spirit world in general. Have had a deep interest for several years in the mind & spirituality, and most recently healing.I’m at a point in my life where I feel changes are taking place for me in a transformative way. I am feeling new confidence and ‘power’ (mainly in my communication).
In the last few days I have seen 3 pure white cats at seemingly significant times. Like when I was actively reminding myself to be courageous or wise for example.
I am interested to learn more about totem animals and their function. It feels like a gift but I am not sure exactly what to do with it! Can you give me any ideas or suggested reading about white cats specifically?

Many thanks and great Website – thank you.

Hey Elizabeth, I love your site! So I have a few questions for you! I tried searching for some answers online but couldn’t find anything helpful per say so maybe you can help me out. I’ve always been attracted to cats for some reason, my first word was actually “kitty kat”. I grew up with 2 cats (they are still alive and living back at my parents house, I just moved recently). Anyways, everything was fine until about 3 days ago. I was getting ready to go to sleep and all of a sudden the room filled with this overwhelming “loving” type energy. Then it felt as if someone was tucking me into bed, walking around the entire bed tucking the sheets close to my body. It also felt like the suns rays where shining on me and I felt warm and full of love. I’ve never felt so much love like that before, it just consumed my entire body. Suddenly it was as if a cat jumped on the end my bed and was walking back and forth. Something or someone proceeded to lay down next to me and I could hear whispering but couldn’t make out what was being said. About 20 minutes later the energy faded some what, movement stopped and I fell asleep. So the following night I get into bed and I felt a cat jump on my bed, it was walking around, kneaded my legs like crazy then just laid down. I could hear the cat purring as well. I sat up and when I touched the area where the cat was suppose to be, I could feel or see nothing. I laid back down and this continued to happen, so at one point it felt like there was a total of 5 or 6 cats laying next to or on top of me. I was literally up till 8am because there was so much kneading and movement going on. I can actually feel the energy of the spirit cat walking “through” me and it is sort of uncomfortable. Now every single time I lay down or sit on my bed, the spirit cat comes to lay next to me. I just have no idea what’s going on or why these cat spirits are all of a sudden making themselves known. More importantly why they are kneading and purring so much. Do you have any thoughts to why this is happening? Or what they are trying to tell me, should I be worried?

Hey Elizabeth! I’ve always had a strong connection with cats. Growing up I had a few cats that were by my side all the time. When I when I was 17 my familiar passed away from old age. Relatively quickly after her passing I started developing allergies to cats. Now, 10 years later, I’m incredibly allergic to cats and it breaks my heart. I frequently dream of cats. They are always coming to me and I can cuddle up with them and bury my face in their fur. No allergies in my dreams, and I often make note of that in my dream. I’m also surrounded by leo’s. My husband, best friend, and son are all leo’s. I strongly feel cats are a totem in my life, but why have I developed allergies to them?

I’m very happy I found this site. For 10 yrs now I’ve had a black cat spirit around me. When I first felt this cat jump on my bed I thought it was one of my cats. I jumped up turned the light on an looked and my cat wasn’t in my room. Plus my bedroom door was closed. When I walked out of my room into the living room a large black cat with white eyes was staring at me…this was not my cat cuz they were both in my brothers room with the door shut. This cat could’ve been around longer than I known. I’ve moved to a different state an lived in different apartment an this cat is still there. Even with me having dogs now and no other cats its still around. I feel it jump on my bed every night when I sleep…once it scared me because I rolled over an opened my eyes in it was right there in my face…it had its front paws on my bed an was leaning in toward me. I was just surprised even tho I shouldn’t be after all these yrs. I always thought this cat was my spirit guide. I guess I may be right.

In the middle of last night, I heard my cat meowing on the balcony. I went out to see what it was. There was a white cat lying on the grass. I looked at it and it ran away. I went back to bed. Minutes later, my cat was meowing again and I went back onto the balcony. I saw a grey and beige cat lying there, looking up at me. I had its attention for a few minutes, then it ran away to the same area as the white cat did. I went back to bed and again a few minutes later i was called back to the balcony, I looked down and there was an orange cat who immediately ran towards the same direction as the other two. Now I live on a busy street and I’ve never seen a stray cat in the 3 years I’ve been here. Can you please tell me what this could mean?

Hi. i recently came across someone who is doing a reading for me and I am waiting for a response. Last night though something very interesting happened a white cat with a black patterned tail entered our home. It looked cold and hungry so i feed it and petted it for some time. Than the cat began to purr, and nestle next to me then my husband. the interesting this is is tht i woke up earliar in the morning and began to rubb the cats stomach, and it seemed very affeciate to me for a very long time and then came back this afternoon for a visit. I also felt that should call the cat destiny, and it responds to the name and comes when I call destiny. Is there something i m not aware of , do the colors symbolize something – never have seen a white cat with 2 small spots and a black patterned tail ! Any insight would be gretly appreciated. :)

Ok, so I’m starting to learn about totems and for years I’ve come to accept that the dragonfly is my totem, but today I had kinda a strange experience. I am going through somechallenging times in my life right now and since my head was feeling like it was about to explode. I decided to try to clear my mind by the pool. I had read somewhere that through meditation you can attract the attention of your totem for giudance. Though, I wasn’t really thinking of totems, I just started to clear my mind. As I started feeling a bit of a floating feeling I opened my eyes and right at that moment, this cat walks out from around the corner, stops and looks in my direction for a bit (he had these beautiful eyes with this far away kind of stare), and then he continued to walk alonside the apartment building, stops at my porch for a bit, then walks off around the corner.
The crazy part, I hate cats. But he reminded me of one I loved so dearly, even though he looked nothing like her. When I was younger, this beautiful ocicat stray showed up and decided to stay. I named her squeak because she seemed to be talking to me through squeaks all the time. (terrible name I know but I was a kid lol) She gretted me when I would come home and never left my side. She slept in my bed with me and she even watched me practice karate everyday! My life was turbulent when she came into my life, after her arrival, I found meaning to my life now that I look back on it.
The reason why I hate cats: my mom took her one day and left her in a crate in front of a church. I never could even look at a cat after that. What could all this mean?

You don’t have to love the animal that is your totem. You are learning it’s traits and it’s strengths. Cats never stopped loving you by the way.

Are they perhaps trying to tell me something? Today, I had yet another encounter with a cat, this time white with orange spots. This one came right up to me.
And, well, I am starting to feel a little guilty about hating cats. I really wish I could understand them more now…

Hello,
Today a friend and I were working and while speaking to potential clients a black stray cat came and rubbed between my legs while I was standing there. Does this have any meaning behind it? I’m not extremely superstitious however; this instance has made me curious.

Hi i’m 25 yr old male , i have been reading through everybody comments on this page and it looks interesting however i have a few questions concerning these superstitions and the life cycles i’m going through , i just moved to a new state in the last 10 months for change and lived in two homes since then i have had alot of opportunities job wise and all over a sudden the pages just flipped on me, with that being said i moved to a new home early this year and i have been seeing various black and one same cat around , one day i had left the back door open and a black cat entered my house i have looked up superstitions and they say its good luck so i told my ex girl friend to take it out however in a few weeks i was called for another new job, another time i found three black cats on my door step and like i said i was curious and looked it up and it was good luck a couple days later i was called and offered another job which i didn’t go to . i have also seen the same white cat i talked about earlier during the day and at night. As i write this at night ,i was just at my neighbors house while sitted on the screen porch i saw the white cat again at the next door neighbor and then saw a black cat laying in the middle of the road on the left side directly looking at me , i looked again the cat had disappeared i then walked back to my house and saw another black cat walking toward my back door entrance it then stopped in the middle of the road sat down and looked at me for a few minutes and then walked to its right.

Another time i saw the 2 black cats fighting in my drive way , i have also seen a cat eating grass and they that means its sick and taking its medicine and it happened to be that i have a family member who is sick as well.

However with all this being said in a period of 6 months i have had alot of really great great opportunities come across my way and bad things happen too

NOTE; I WAS ENGAGED IN A NEW RELATIONSHIP WITH AN OLDER FEMALE THAT I WAS DOUBTFUL AND AT TIMES DID NOT TRUST ANY THING SHE SAID AND MOVED IN TOGETHER AND EVER SINCE THEN THESE CATS HAVE BEEN AROUND ALOT BUT WHEN WE SEPARATED, I STILL SEE THEM BUT THEY ARE NOT AROUND AS MUCH .

QUOTE; SHE WAS A ANIMAL LOVER AS WELL

I also used to hear them outside my bedroom window meowing alot when she was around when we separated i don’t hear them that much

I also used to see this regular black cat that looked sick frequently and now i barely see it after she left

“”"”CAN SOME ONE HELP”"

“”"” I USED TO SAY IM ALLERGIC TO CATS DIDN’T MATTER WHAT COLOR IT WAS BUT NOW IM START TO THINK THAT THESE LITTLE CREATURES ARE REALLY HARMLESS BUT LOVING ALL TIMES.

A couple of weeks ago. I was laying in bed and thought 1 of 2 of my cats jumped in bed with me, I used the light on my cell phone, but nothing was there, it happened again like one walked over my leg and layed next to my ankle, like one of my cats normally do, but once again nothing was there, finally I heard a thump on the floor like the cat jumped down. I have not felt this since and has been on my mind ever since.

Hello there, well I’m a little confused right now and wanted to know whether an all white cat with light blue eyes is bad luck or good luck because like a week ago that cat has been sitting outside of my apartment between my outside front stairs and front door and won’t leave and it softly meows and it only stays there and doesn’t go to our next door neighbors’ stairs only ours. What do you think it means??

Hello~

I came across this page while researching a dream I just had, involving a white cat who was my companion. I just lost my beloved black and white kitty of 20 years (he transitioned in March), and we have had a few adventures together in dreamtime since. I know how to connect with him energetically so it surprised me that I was now working with a white cat instead of him. All the other cats he’s brought to me before were big cats…a lynx and a jaguar and black panther. Later in the dream, as I let the cat walk with me instead of carrying him, I found myself in a treatment room receiving reiki from a team of women, and outside was a temple area of earthen mounds with pagan symbols decorating them (earth, suns, moon phases, etc) topped with an open steeple filled with art of varying gods and goddesses and fairies. I have no idea if this is related to the white cat…just wondering what your thoughts are.

Thanks.

Hey Elizabeth,
First great name its my middle one haha (: Well i come from a long line of spiritual people, my grandmother is actually from Austria and was taught some the yeniche gypsy spiritual beliefs and practices when she lived with them in a cave during the Holocaust. I am an avid exerciser around dusk when its the coolest outside, but one evening i was doing laps in my apts pool and noticed this black cat standing at the edge of the pool watching me so i swam to the side to approach it. But as expected it backed away and sat on the stone landing. Me being an animal lover i started to talk to the cat not like a crazy person but just like a pet or friend. this cat struck me as odd because it obviously is a stray as we have many of stray cats here, but this one just sat and acted as if it knew exactly what i was saying. I swim almost everyday so i told the cat that hopefully ill see them tomorrow and if not maybe another time. jokingly i said but you probably know where i live already the cat then abruptly shot up and caught its dinner then farther away the cat looked at me and then its head snapped in the opposite direction as if it was being called it then bolted away. the next day i got there late and left early i did not see the cat however i did feel like something followed me home. i haven’t seen the cat in a few days but have felt watched not in a creepy way just watched. almost about 40 minutes ago i had gotten into my room from a shower lit some candles and turned on my tv i still felt watched so i looked out my large window in my room(which is on the top half of my apartment building in the back of the complex) and didn’t see anything at first but scanned again and then i spotted my watcher it was the same black cat from the pool i had chatted with. They just sat there starring back at me frozen and then they scurried away again. but almost immediately after i saw this quick flash that seemed to have come from under a near by car it looked as if someone flashed a flashlight real quick but i kept looking for someone but i could not find one single soul out there.i found this quite strange in coincidence especially since my apartment complex is pretty big and my building is pretty far from the pool but i wanted to get someone like yous opinion, thank you. (:

When my nephew, Mike died trafically, his father went to visit the site of the accident. He was having coffee before heading out with the farm manager and a Serval came and sat at the window and watched/listened to them talking. Mike was working in the wild with Nyala; he died loving his life and what he was doing. A Nyala bull stood on a high rocky hill/mountain (the hill is called Mountain of Kings!) overlooking the accident site when Mike’s father visited the site. Can you give a spiritual meaning for the Serval and Nyala please, to help the family.

Hi Elizabeth

I have a important question and I hope you can help.

Me and my girlfriend got a male black cat around a year and 4 months ago. We got him while he was still very small. The day we bought him, my girlfriend had put him on the table in front of me, and without ever even seeing me, and still very afraid of people (as it was in a cage), it walked directly towards my face and rubbed it with his. I knew then that this was a very special cat and he chose me. Cats have always liked me and will always rub against me and lay on me.

As time went by, me and my girlfriend had a lot of arguments and she actually moved out for a while. Arthur (my cat) stayed with me, as he couldn’t adapt in another home and we could see he was content and happy with me. He gave me tons of love, a sense of calmness and positivity and I felt that everything will work out and be ok as long as he is with me. Meanwhile, Me and my girlfriend moved back together again. And here’s the thing,unfortunately, Arthur passed away around 10 days ago. As you can imagine, I was devastated and still am that my baby is gone. I cant understand why he had to leave me. I still cry everyday and it feels like a piece of my soul was taken. It feels like he is still in the house and I feel him on the bed sometimes.

Today I did an angel reading(Doreen Virtue), and my second card was Power Animal. Does this mean that he is still with me in spirit and wants to guide me or comfort me? I don’t know what to do, my heart is broken in 10 million pieces.

I will appreciate if you can clear things up a bit for me.

Kind regards

Xander

Having been awake all night, I went to the barhroom just after sunrise. On emerging, I saw a black cat streak into the living room. We don’t own one, and he startled me :-) – I met him in the kitchen, and sat down with him to ask how he had gotten into the house. He acted like he owned the place and rolled around purring. Obviously he belonged to someone and he left promptly when I showed him the door; but being a spiritual person I truly wonder what he was trying to tell me. Interesting things happen here in Portland Maine.

My 4 year old son woke up this morning terrified because there was a “red cat” sitting by his window staring at him. He was legitimately scared. I know there are spirits in my house. One of a woman who watches over us. And others who we have protected against. But I am a little concerned over the fact that this is a red cat. If it were black or white I would feel much better. Any ideas?

Then more kittens came out of my clothing … One even out from between my legs and out of my undies!… and as my mother and i tried to feed them more kittens followed me purring and rubbing my legs add they stalked me till I had almost a dozen happy hungry kittens.
I always look for the medicine of animals… but I’ve never dreamed about … well… so many of one animal.

Hi Elizabeth. My son (who is now 4) has been dreaming of a black cat running around his bed room, under his bed (crib when he was a baby) and basically just stalking around upstairs since he was an infant. This started before he could talk, when we shared a room (I can tell by his reactions and body language that its the same dream). He can now tell me about how the cat used to run around in the hallway outside his bedroom and run in he room under his crib/bed. He had even cried once that the cat go INTO his bed with him. It got to the point where he wouldn’t sleep in his bed, so we moved him out of our room, in with his brother. He had said a few times since that he saw the cat at the top of the stairs, just sitting there, while he was awake. Just this morning, he woke up with quite a scream. I want to know why this has been happening, what it means and how I can make him feel safe.. I feel like I haven’t slept since he was born. I’m always on the look out for a real animal that got in the house and even an apparition (as of lately).
Thanks so much

Hi and thank you for this lovely site….
I am separated and going through many financial and work problems, not to mention my ex.to be and his new partner wanting to come to me all the time, very confusing but anyway – the reason I am writing is because for the last 3 nights a grey fluffy cat, with a pink collar has been coming to my front door, and this is around 23h00 each night – it was raining the first night and I thought maybe the cat was just lost. I have 3 cats of my own and they were upset when the heard this cat meowing outside, but it would cry like it was hurt or in terrible need, when i call it, it suddenly starts to meow like a sweet soft sound. What is weird is that it keeps coming back and crying – oh just to mention that I have two females and a male cat they have all been seen to, so it is not about mating issues or something. I have a lot of problems that I dealing with at the moment just trying to keep my head above water………..what interests me though is why would a cat and this specific one come back each night at around 23h00 and not leave for about an hour at least……..I have heard that grey cats are good luck……….not sure if that is true. Oh and when i go to it, it starts to meow and run away all the time and then I follow it – when I walk back inside it follows till my door again………I feel strange about this……….what are your thoughts on this.

The first part of my dream was I can’t remember clearly I think I was being chased by squirrels and they were angry like about to bite me. The dream I remember vividly though is that there was a black cat next to me and that is how I woke up. It was just there next to me purring and then I woke up, I felt like it was really next to me. It felt very real!! Do you know what this could possibly mean? is it a bad sign? Thank you in advance.

I was driving home one night and my garage was open when I left. When I got home, there was a black cat sitting in the spot where I park my car. Now my grandfather is a very superstitious man and will refuse to cross the path of a black cat. I have picked up some of his superstition but ive never let it bother me. I also have two cats currently and love them dearly. I love cats and would never harm one. But that night it felt strange having a black cat sitting in the spot where I park and looking directly at me. I stopped mt car in the driveway and got out. It ran underneath my dads boat. I then walked closer to the garage and it ran under my dads truck and then left my garage. So I decided to put my car in the garage but I did feel a little odd parking where it was sitting and crossing its path. I dont know what to make of this. Any advice would be awesome. Thank you

I love cats but I rarely dream about them. Last night I had a very strange dream – I was living in a very old house with other people, I looked across the road a saw what I thought was a leopard or cheetah lying in a clump of grass. As it got up I saw that it was more like a savannah cat. It ran towards my house and I immediately panicked that it would attack my very small elderly silver tabby female. One of my fellow house mates quickly picked her up and tucked her into her dressing gown but she jumped out and ran up to the savannah cat which I thought started to attack her but it ended up that they were play fighting, albeit quite roughly. I am very close to my little cat and I hate to think to be without her – she is 15 years old….perhaps this about fears of losing her?

Hello Elizabeth,

I read through almost all the comments trying to gain perspective about a situation that happened hours ago (teary eyed for a few). Earlier at night I was on my balcony talking to a friend about my upcoming 30th (which I’ve been feeling anxious about) and I looked over and saw a black cat staring at me and the meowing at me (my clarsentient senses perked). I got off the phone and walked downstairs to meet this cat that was appearing to speak to me. I petted him, rubbed his belly, and spent about 15 minutes with him before I realized he was following me. He followed me up the stairwell, so I invited him in. He looked around and then took a nap in the stairwell while I sat there wondering if I should keep him. I let him go, but then when I went wandering around again another tenant found him and asked if I could take him! I figured ok he was meant to come home with me, so I took him home. He wandered and played, but wouldn’t eat anything. When he head budded me, i immediately thought of my cat that died two years ago that i still greatly miss. Finally after I made his bed he tried to escape through the screen and having to coax him off the balcony ledge, I realized I wasn’t meant to keep him, so I took him back outside. He chose to leave, but looked back up and stared at me on my balcony before he walked away.

I don’t get it, but i have some ideas. Was wondering if you had any insights. I did tell this cat he was loved.

Reply

Elizabeth December 20, 2013 at 11:32 am

He was passing a message along from your old cat … “I love you”. Plus, he was just enjoying the time spent with you. He lives outside though and chooses to remain there. It was a nice interaction…like meeting someone on a plane who you really like but will never see again.

Hello Elizabeth, Ive always loved cats of all kinds and have always considered them as family just as much or more as other family members of blood. I have always caught glimpses of cat spirits throughout my life but really never thought to tell anyone about them since I wouldn’t have thought anybody would have believed me. But in two instances they were much more than just glimpses. One night I was having problems falling to sleep when, in a half awake half asleep state of consciousness, something black and dark came up from the foot of my bed to bite my face when all of a sudden a dark grey cat figure came over my left shoulder to chase it off. The second time I was again in a half awake half asleep state of being when I found myself standing in front of a door, the door opened and on the other side of it I saw darkness, and something from the darkness took shape and lunged out of the door at me, but when it did the same dark charcoal color gray cat came from the over the left side of my shoulder and fought the object and in one swift swipe from it the dark figure was sliced in half and the cat disappeared. I wont go anymore into that story because it got really creepy afterwards. I know these stories may sound to super outstanding to have happened but they did. What exactly do you think of this?

Also I wanted to add a few other things, I have always gotten along with all cats and they have always trusted me before trusting others, they would always act so much more friendlier to me even if they wouldn’t even let their own owners near them they would let me in one minute. All the cats my family has ever owned have came as kittens and, according to my family, have taken after me in likeness. Also the cat sightings seem to be becoming more frequent, not the bad mystical spiritual experiences or even the good ones, just them, the cats. I’ve always been boggled by their closeness to me. I know it doesn’t really mean to much but what would you have to say? I would love an answer.

I do not own a cat.. & this pass two night I have been having weird dream…. Deep in my dream I would began to be woken up ” half wake/ half asleep” to this cat crying.. As soon as I notice the sound of the cat crying & then it stop. I found it weird because it happened yesterday and today. The dream I have been having are really weird and strange I can’t explain it not sure if I would call it an nightmare either. This might sound weird but it like the cat is crying while I’m sleeping and it like…it sense or know that I’m awake so it stop crying..maybe the cat are the cause to my weird dream I not sure. The first time I was woken up at 3 o’clock and today it was around 5ish

This is very strange, the exact same thing has been happening to me, which explains why it is 3:30 a.m. and I am wide awake. I was wondering if you have found an explanation for this…

Last night my mother picked me up from my aunt’s house we were walking back to the car when I noticed a black cat at the edge of the drive way once I looked at it I felt strange feeling come over me once me and my mother got into the car we backed out the drive way the black cat was sitting on the right side of the road and while me and my mother was in the car it just stared at me I got the strange feeling again and a shock went down my spine I know it wasn’t a normal cat experience because I never felt anything like that before but lately I picked up my spritualism religion and started meditating again I always ask the angels and my spirit guides to watch over me for some reason I got the feeling the black cat knew me I was also overwhelmed by a powerful presence please if you could provide insight in anyway it would be greatly appreciated

I have had a dream about a cat with a black rear end and a white front half. After that dream I started seeing the tail or back paw of a black cat going around corners. I have never seen it’s front half I know it’s not one of my cats cause I have seen it outside of my home and my cats are indoor cats. In my dream the white and black cat fought my cat cocopuffs to the death the last part of my dream that I remember is the two cats attacking eachother. My mom gave me a stuffed little cross to put under my pillow and since then I haven’t seen the cat but my mom has and she only sees it while I’m sleeping. My sister has seen it to thinking it was my cat but it couldn’t be my cat she was at the vet. My sister and I were the only ones home. Should I be worried about this I have dreams of cats meowing a sad horrifying meow. I’m scared please help

I forgot to add something sorry! Every cat I have come into contact with loves me even if the owner says the cat is shy and hates visitors they always love me and the owners say the cat are more friendly after they meet me. But the cats meet are.never black cats. And the one time I did come into contact with a black cat it feared me. It’s was a very friendly lively playful cat too. I know it sounds weird but I don’t know what to do I’m extremely curious

Hi, We just bought a new house and our neighbor has a cat. Since my husband is a cat lover, he started to feed him and now he wont leave our house or us. I am very scared of cat but because of my partner affection towards him, I started to go soft on him. But the strange thing happened two days before when we were sleeping in our main bedroom which is on the second floor and there are no trees beside our house just a small fence and big wall and our windows doesn’t open vertically. My husband heard cat meowing at 5:00 and saw cat in our room and he took him downstairs to alfresco. We didnt think much about it. We thought it was inside the house and got into our room. However, next day, same time I found the same cat walking on top me me and I was scared to death. Again he took it downstairs and then we checked our window and the main door which were close , no ajar but close and there is no way he could have make it from anywhere. I could still remember the cat posture on top of me as if he was about to breathe on me. Please please please let me know what it means. My partner was saying it might be DEJAVU or dream but I am sure no same person have same dream that feels so real.

Hello, I have a rather psychic/intuitive 3 year old son. He refuses to sleep in his own room because of the “monster cat”. We have talked about it and the cat is not mean but it “looks” at him. Could this be a guide? A ghost? I told him to be kind to the “monster cat” and it would be nice back. Not sure what else to do. Thoughts?

I frequently see or hear spirits so its no surprise when I hear or see one or sometimes even something out of the ordinary but even so I can honestly say I hadn’t heard tell of any kind of spirit animal or even seen one but then a while ago while I was with my family at this eat out restraunt thing and I was just sitting there eating when an image popped into my mind of a cat walking up behind me. A cat with light grey and darker grey fur and yellow-green eyes and what may have been odd was that it seemed to be smiling, oh and it was staring up at me. Then just yesterday I was staying up just about all night when I heard a meow in my mind. I would have probably put it off as my imagination if I didn’t see the cat seconds later. I mean I saw a small blue colored light in the form of a cat, I had the feeling that it was that same cat I saw that long while ago. Even then it was still smiling and staring at me.

And now last night I could hardly get to sleep because of this pain in my head, it was pounding in various places on my head and I was begging for it to stop but then I think right before I fell asleep I heard a cat’s purr even though we dont have cats. I fell asleep listening to that cat purring and I didn’t remember it today until I heard someone talking about their pet cat and I was like,”Oh yeah… Didn’t I hear a cat purring last night?”

One morning a couple of women came to my door saying they were walking and this cat came out of the yard following them. They handed him to me asking me to hold him till they were gone. I had never seen these women walking before or since on our road, which is odd because we are rural and know most all who walk our road. He began purring and nuzzling so he was in. He sees the entities ( yes the house has ghosts at it was built in 1854) he seems to have an agenda. He always stays on my left side never the right. At my shoulder hip or knee. It seems more than coincidence. Am I just delusional or could there be a real useful psychic/ magical connection. I have had a feeling that there will be a vital assignment for me in the future and he is preparing me on some level. Feedback encouraged.

Past few days i have had a black cat sitting at my front door. It first appeared when I was sat in my back garden and kept wanting togo into the house so I closed the back door. Later that dawwg was putting my daughter to bed and saw the cat sat on my front door step and then every day since, just sat on my doostep. I felt a little strange about this so decided to Google it to see what it meant, I have always believed it to be a be omen, but still not sure what it means for me!

This morning I saw a black cat laying down in the middle of the road, and when it saw me it sat up and looked at me, I was concerned that it might get hit from a car but when I reached the bottom front entrance of my apartment building and opened the door it was gone without a trace. Just wondering if there is any meaning to this, Thank you

Hello, i have a beautiful black cat that i love with all my heart. She is not like other cats me and her have a really strong bond. Anyways I’m also a lucid dreamer. For as long as i can remember i can control what goes on in my dreams. Ever since I adopted my baby I feel like she’s been walking my dreams with me. Every time we sleep together she always pops up in my dreams. Some times when I’m having a bad dream she will wake me up by meowing in my dreams. I have looked up information about cats and if they can “walk dreams” but so far i have found nothing until i read here that they can accompany you? Anyways i just want to understand it more because it really intrigues me if you could explain that more i would really appreciate it. :)

Hi,
I was driving along one late afternoon on a suburban street when a cat ran straight under my front right car wheel. Horrified I quickly stopped and ran back to it. A man driving a white van also stopped and told me I couldn’t have done anything to avoid hitting the cat – it just dashed straight in front of me he said. The man offered to take the cat to the vet for me (I was very upset). But I don’t think the cat would have lived as it had some blood coming out of its nose. I love animals and don’t even kill spiders, I can’t help thinking it must have a message or meaning. Do you know what it could be? Kind regards, Kim

I had a dream where I was with my 11 year old son and a tiger cub came out of nowhere towards us…I was worried and couldn’t ward it away…but, since it was so small, I did’t worry too much about it, but held my hand in front of it to stop it from getting my son. It didn’t bite me, but began to play with me like a cat, and started purring very hard.

What does that mean?

I’m really hoping you can help me. I lost my mother in law in dec 2011. In April 2012, I lost my Granma, the very next day my brother died in an accident. I’ve recently been visited by an owl that appeared out of nowhere, was here for 4 days then just disappeared. Now I’ve been seeing this black cat with yellow eyes around my house. Could just be a stray, but I feel like it’s more. Just don’t know what. Please help

My grandmother dies while I was holding her hand I came home the next day everything was fine. That night I came back home and I was getting stuff out of the trunk of my car and this black cat came walking fast over to me from across the street.it scared me so I tried to shew it away and it lasted in the middle of the street watching me.after I git my stuff from the truck I was walking up to my house and it was still following me. I tired to shew it away but it didn’t stop coming toward me. I go into the house into my bedroom and it’s outside my bedroom window just meowing away. It really scared me because I have NEVER seen a cat come towards new like it was going to attack me and my granddaughters. I never see it in the day time ever.. I was out last night and I came by my house to see where it was at and it was laying in my drive way waiting….

I have a friend who said that a black cat only come to her house is when a man friend come over. She also said that it ones came in her and went crazy but once it’s outside it is ok and very protected of her, and it even let her rub it. What does it mean.

My aged mother just passed 1 wk ago. I am grieving her loss as is normal when we lose someone we love. Just prior to dinner a beautiful white cat, I have never seen before came up to my back door and peered in. Then he moved off and sat on a fence, then came back up to house and sat on kitchen window cill. I said to my husband it is my mom sending a message, the cat represents an angel.
I am not a superstitious person but this was quite something.

I was on a morning walk and came across two new born( still had umbilical cords attached) kittens in the roadway one white and one black and white. I nicknamed them Yin and Yang. I waited from a distance to see if mama kitty would return- no luck.. I search the neighbor for a possible owner -to no avail. I was very lucky to find a kitty rescue with experience with newborns who offered to take them. They survived the hour long trip and the rescue woman said it looks like a great possibility for their survival. I am glad I happened upon them so they did not die from a hawk or become roadkill. Wondering what the spiritual message was for this experience. Maybe simply a good deed :)
