A BON VIVANT BOTH SECRETIVE AND SENSUAL
The feline’s curious and adventurous nature is analogous to its spiritual counterpart - that being the Spirit Cat’s sensuous and secretive symbolism. In the shamanic sense, the Cat power-animal is a highly independent being, and its wanderlust ways and sensitivity to its surroundings leads it to seek beauty and novelty far and wide. Moreover, the Spirit Cat carries with it the metaphysical symbolism of being able to traverse inner and outer fears with ease, as well as the afterlife and physical plane, alike. The ancient Egyptians revered ‘the Cat’ and used them as guardians for their temple gates and for fending off evil; thus, Cats were treated like royalty and given special privileges like being buried with Pharaohs and incased in jeweled sarcophagi.
Traits of the Cat are: Secretive, Curious, Sensual, Independent, and Adventurous.
