What is the meaning of Cats in dream

For millions of years, the cat has been not only one of the quintessential companion animals but also the incarnation of a perfect being or the personification of evil or superstition. Not surprisingly, dreaming of cats is one of the most studied dreams since they are unique beings to which many assign mystical qualities.

In addition, cats accumulate popular traditions that are already part of the cultural heritage of many peoples. Who has not heard of bad luck when a black cat crosses our path? Or who hasn’t seen a movie or read a book where the wicked witch has a cat as a sidekick?

Cats are elegant and mysterious animals traditionally attributed to extrasensory properties and have become symbols of good or bad luck, depending on each culture. Hence the enormous mystical burden that comes from dreaming of cats, animals that, according to popular tradition, represent hidden passions and emotions when they appear in dreams.

However, the interpretations of these dream experiences can be many depending on the action that each dream reflects. Dreaming of cats symbolizes good luck, success, and prosperity and is closely related to money and love.

Haughty, beautiful, graceful, disturbing, domestic, elusive, adorable, repulsive, touching, frightening, or fascinating, the cat is the familiar companion of the world of our dreams as it is today. Symbol of duality, in essence, the nature of the cat is double, ambivalent. According to times and traditions, it is associated with evil or beneficial powers. As much as it attracts, it triggers a kind of superstitious fear. It is the revealing medium for many of our emotions. This approach often prevails in our dreams.

Most often, the cat represents the woman perceived in her extreme aspects, the one who fascinates, the one who attracts, but who is mistrusted and feared. The cat or the cat, by its grace, its flexibility, its sensuality, is a rather eloquent feminine representation. A very beautiful woman appears similar to a cat that awakens different emotions in a man, the desire to caress her, to possess her, or to cherish her, when she remains enigmatic, often unapproachable, and elusive. But we can fear its disdain and, if we approach it too closely, fear an unpredictable scratch.

The cat is also a representation of the female sex. In popular language, the “cat” is one of the many names for the temple of Venus. The ambivalence of the symbol remains in some men for whom this organ simultaneously evokes envy, supreme temptation, and disgust, the fear of not being up to the task, and even the fear of the toothed vagina.

The cat also represents the instinctive and imperious desire, the beginnings of all sexuality. It is enough to have, once, attended cat heat to measure the intensity of this desire. She loses her appetite, her whole body being strained towards mating, her eyes extinguished, her buttocks offered. She is no longer herself; it is only desired. This desire, if it remains unfulfilled, is as long-suffering.

The cat thus often represents desire, whether feminine or masculine. This is what a dream where we see two cats approaching, chasing, or simpering together will suggest.

A dream where we caress a cat gently and lovingly, whether we are male or female, is a very positive dream. It represents the acceptance of this sexual desire and, even more, the acceptance of this feminine nature, wonderful, inner or outer, in sensual harmony.

A Mystical Animal

 “When you dream of a cat, you are often not very well the next day, as if you are uncomfortable,” explains psychoanalyst, oneirologist, and sophrologist. “The cat is associated with superstition, witches, occult forces, and esotericism – even though that’s not the main meaning of the cat in the dream,” she adds. In terms of archetype, it remains the animal of suspicion, the evil feline which gives a particular, even strange, atmosphere to the dream.

Besides its mystical side, the cat’s symbolism is much more complex. It has three main facets:

First: the little feline can embody a spiritual dimension, “that of the wise man who guides us. It helps in the passage from the conscious world to the dream world.”

Second: it represents the independent, sexually assertive, and autonomous woman. The cat attracts, fascinates but at the same time frightens. Note that we can love cats in life and be disturbed by their presence in our sleep.

Third: it embodies sexual desire with a notion of suffering. The cat can symbolize “a repressed, unfulfilled sexuality,” notes the specialist.

These three dimensions can very well coexist: the cat is capable of embodying them all in the same dream. Spirituality, femininity, and sexual concerns, after all, why choose?

Sexual connotation

We have already started it, but it is worth insisting on it: the sexual connotation of the cat is undeniable – you see, the woman’s sex is still nicknamed “the pussy”. Even in its softer version, “the kitty.”

This symbol is, therefore, very gendered. Petting a cat in your dream is more of an erotic metaphor than purring therapy. However, everything depends on the context of the invention and the person’s story: “someone who is in a spiritual process, of clairvoyance, of the opening of consciousness, can also stroke a cat, and it will not be associated with sex. of the woman but to the role of the ‘wise man'”, explains the Parisian oncologist.

Dreaming of cats: what does it mean

1- Generically, dreaming of cats can be interpreted as:

2- Economic prosperity or it is inverse: a scarcity of money

3- Love issues in which infidelity is also included

4- Independence and freedom

5- Social relationships, whether good or bad

Thus, dreaming of cats usually has a double aspect that affects the positive or negative part of the same matter. Everything will depend on the sensations that come to us during sleep and the actions in these dream experiences.

When in the dream, the cats are in good health and are in good condition, everything is going well in principle; not so if they are sick or tarnished.

When it comes to money, dreaming of cats has different meanings depending on what they do. If they play with you, it indicates success and professional prosperity; if you caress them, it is interpreted as the arrival of a significant sum of money; but if the cats run away or attack you, be careful because then it would indicate labor problems.

These gestures can also be interpreted as social contacts. If you dream of cats they attack you, then it means that you are a person with many prejudices and should be more tolerant; if you caress them, it indicates overconfidence or that your general state is calm.

Dreaming cats can also send us references regarding love or seduction since dreaming of cats is related to sentimental life. If you desire to caress a cat, it reflects your passion for someone, and if you feed it, it is interpreted as infidelity. However, if you dream of cat tracks, it means that someone is trying to harm you, and if you desire that a cat is trying to enter your house, it means that someone wants to take something from you; if the feline enters the house, it is interpreted as that you can lose much of what you have.

I have long been fascinated by dreams and have even made a serious attempt to analyze them years ago. My interest in dream interpretation grew with the help of numerous books. Every morning, I recorded what I could remember of my dreams, not an easy feat considering dreams tend to disappear as soon as they are remembered. (A tape recorder saves valuable time and is less jarring than grabbing a pen and paper and turning on the light to write.)

I finally realized that I could spend my whole life studying these night visions and still not understand what they were trying to tell me. Do I think my dreams attempt to transfer valuable information from my subconscious to my conscious mind? Yes. Would understanding the messages help me in my waking life? Yes, again…but decoding the letters is the hard part.

The biggest problem with dream analysis is that it is so subjective. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” interpretation. Women and men dream differently; symbols can also mean different things depending on how you feel about them in your waking life. Adding to the difficulty is that dream symbols can have multiple purported meanings. Whose interpretation is correct? It is impossible to say. However, I will offer some arrangements about cats in dreams, mainly for your entertainment.

Some say that cats in dreams symbolize your intuition and that the cat’s health indicates whether you are paying attention or ignoring your intuition. A dream about a sick cat could mean that you need to listen more to your intuition and rely less on intellect.

Other interpretations claim that cats in dreams symbolize femininity, softness, an independent spirit, creativity, power, misfortune, vulnerability, bad luck, deception, and falsehood (see what I mean about cats). Multiple assumed meanings?).

An aggressive cat could suggest difficulty with the feminine aspect of yourself. Being afraid of the dream cat implies some fear associated with your femininity. A dream feline can symbolize someone in your life who is “mischievous” or mischievous. Being scratched by a cat in a dream suggests that you feel threatened.

Dreaming that you cannot find your cat is a metaphor for your sense of independence and that you feel that someone or something is preventing you from being free. Saving the life of a dream cat suggests that you are reclaiming your independence and power.

Seeing a playful cat playing in your dream suggests the need to be more carefree and active in your own life. Cats in your plan may reflect your need to feel loved or your fear that you will not be honest with others so that they will love you. A house full of cats in a dream represents excessive illusions or things that you believe to be false.

Dreams about a wild cat may indicate that a neighbor could be dangerous or that you will have some dispute with them. Dreaming of fighting a cat could be a warning that you will be robbed or tricked somehow, while cuddling with a cat in a dream suggests that your enemies may be “tamed.” A cat biting you in a dream symbolizes the loss of something, typically related to those closest to you.

Although adult cats are often associated with independence and self-sufficiency, kittens are seen as helpless beings. Dreaming of kittens could indicate that you are feeling vulnerable, scared, or need help.

When women dream of cats, the felines are thought to symbolize how she sees herself. This includes your physical body and your intuition, independence, creativity, and your relationships with men.

When a man dreams of cats, the cats are said to symbolize his attitude towards women or how he thinks women perceive him. A cat that purrs means that the man thinks that women find him attractive and he is comfortable with women. A hissing cat suggests that he feels rejected by women or that there are problems in his relationship. Have you been having intriguing dreams about cats lately?
