A cat is one of the most popular pets which accompany humans. As a result, it should not surprise anyone that it also often appears in our dreams.
Dreams about a cat have a lot of version – how to interpret them, we advise below.
How to interpret a dream about a cat?
Depending on our attitude towards those animals, as well as towards the situation in our dream, cats may have a positive or a negative meaning. On the one hand, they may be the signs of independence and success, e.g, in business or our personal life (kittens symbolize new ideas), on the other hand though, they are also interpreted as the symbol of evil, bad luck and nastiness or a warning about an unsympathetic person.
A lot of women dream about cats. It is related to the promiscuity of a cat which wants to satisfy sexual needs with its soft paws, but it also catches with sharp claws and will not let out. It is the symbol of “wild cat” in woman’s personality, which is a sexual desire, usually bashfully hidden in real life and appearing only in a dream in the form of a cat. In man’s dream, a cat is the symbol of the woman he wants to posses.
For Artemidorus, a cat is the symbol of promiscuity and dishonesty, as “a cat is an animal which hunts for birds and birds are the symbol of women”. Up till now, people have had a negative opinion of cats, although psychology is trying to modify their symbolical meaning.
And they are not managing to do so, as, in the best case, they see the symbol of women’s slyness or magic and mysterious powers in it.
Folklore is still ruthless for a cat : to see a cat in a dream – the dreamer is going to steal something but he will get caught; to be scratched by a cat – the dreamer’s gossips will turn against him; to play with a cat – the dreamer will be betrayed by a friend. If a woman is dreaming about it – he will be betrayed by her lover, if a businessman – he will be robbed by his employees.
