Cats are Travelers Historically
Cats historically have signified travel and independence. You now know about our cats specifically, but what about cats in general? In Egypt cats were always given special privileges and were treated like royalty. In Scandinavia, the cat stood for fertility, and in India it is a symbol of childbirth. In ancient times, it was believed that witches took the form of their cats at night. Cat’s are fiercely independent. You can never really own a cat: they allow you to take care of them and love them, but only on their terms. They come and go as they please, when they please. Cat energy is independence, curiosity, many lives, cleverness, unpredictability, healing, the ability to fight when cornered, seeing the unseen, protection and love. Doesn’t all of that sound like travel energy? It has been said that if a cat is your power animal, then you:
- Have magic and mystery in your life.
- You are independent and a free thinker.
- You will stay with a person or situation until it bores you, and then you’re gone.
- You have a great talent for organizing things.
To summarize: independence, curiosity , unpredictability, seeing the unseen, protection, ability to come and go as you please, and great talent for organization. These attributes make cats an excellent symbol for adventure travel/ travel planning.
