So I gather from an extensive page I've found on animal symbolism, where the listing for Cat reads as follows:
Cat - feminine energy, mystical power, used to keep the wearer safe in travel, wholeness
They are speaking of a cat amulet or something of course. I must say I normally am wearing a cat thing somewhere when I travel, and my family remarks on my luck in that regard.
Check out some others:
Raccoon - dexterity, disguise
Raven - magic
Robin - growth, renewal
Rooster - courageous, warlike disposition, warmth and life of the Universe
Here they all are!
PS: Hey Museumgoers, I very recently got some not-great news about a family member's health, so do forgive if some of my posts seem a tad "mailed in". Wish us all luck and health. I wish you the same always.
