What It Means To Dream Of A Cat (general)
In general, to dream of a cat means bad omen, that is, a very unhappy situation is being arranged, and usually has to do with betrayal, infidelity or even lack of support at a critical moment.
But do not panic now, there may be circumstances in the dream itself that can soften or even change these omens.
Dream Of A Cat Escaping
For example, if in your dream you saw a cat or cats running away, it means that you should guard against a betrayal. If in the dream you were threatened by a cat, it indicates that you have to be careful, otherwise you risk having a violent argument in the family.
It is up to you to make the interpretation of what is going on in your life at this time.
If you dream that you are petting a cat, it means that you are having a very strong passion for someone you live with on a daily basis, but if you dream of cats fighting, it means a love breakup.
If instead you swarm a cat in your dream, know that it is good, because it means that you will have a beautiful victory in legal causes.
Dream Of A Biting Cat
Warning! This dream comes as a warning. It means that someone you trust very much, a relative or friend, may be lying to you or preparing to “bite” you. If you are suspicious of someone beware…
Dream Of A Dead Cat Or A Gray Cat
If you dream of a dead cat, it is even better, as it means you will win a battle to a powerful enemy. But be careful if you dream of a cat chasing a mouse, for it is a warning of imminent danger and serious disturbances.
Dream Of A Black Cat
Our dreams always bring us messages that can be good or bad, but most dreams, are usually good.
But to dream of a black cat is not the case. The black cat already brings with it a superstition, as told by our ancestors as the story of bad luck with black cats. To dream of a black cat means really, really bad luck. A black cat may not be a good sign in most dreams.
Dream Of A White Cat
To dream of a white cat may be a sign that you are in love with someone. Even if you are already in a love relationship, this only further confirms what you feel is true love for your partner or boyfriend.
If you are single, it could be a revelation that could happen in the near future, or even already is happening, and you haven’t noticed it yet.
As I mentioned above, you may be in love and not yet realize it. Reflect on your friendships and if there is someone you have a special or different feeling for. Always think very carefully before making any decisions in this regard, don’t do things head on. (So as not to ruin a true friendship.)
It may also represent prosperity for your life in every way.
Dream Of A Yellow Cat
If you dreamed about this, it is a sign that you are attached to material possessions such as, money, clothes, house among others. Money being the most common attachment of all. Do not let yourself get involved in trivial things, the true feeling and the simplest things that life gives us is often more pleasurable than being attached to material things. Give it some thought.
Dream Of Kittens
To dream of kittens may be a bad omen. You may experience some illness in the future. So it is best to keep an eye on your health and not be frightened, because despite some difficulties that you may experience, you will overcome your obstacles.
If you dream of an aggressive cat, it may indicate that you have unresolved love problems. Before you start a new life, either alone or with a new love, clean up your past. Don’t leave anything unresolved, because it is quite possible that your past can hurt you in your present when unresolved.
It may be like a rebirth all over again, but with calmness and a lot of willpower everything will be fine.
Dream Of A Cat In Your Lap
This dream is a little complex to interpret, but in general it symbolizes that you may be going through a phase that you feel a lack of love, affection, passion, etc…
If you are really feeling this and you dreamed of a cat on your lap, do not despair, because this will be temporary. (In a short time this feeling of loneliness will pass).
Dream Of A Sick Cat
If in your dream the cat was crawling, hurt, or sick, it may indicate that you are going through a negative moment in your life. It may be disappointments in love, or even negative moods. Stop and reflect on your attitudes and do not take any decisions lightly.
Dream Of A Meowing / Screaming Cat
If you hear a cat meowing it means that you have false friends around you. If the cat is screaming loudly it may indicate that a friend has been badmouthing you behind your back.
Of course, dreams can be interpreted in many ways depending on what is happening in our lives. Only you can know what it means by the hints that have been given here.
As you can see, dreaming about a cat is not a bad omen. You just have to know how to decipher the messages that the dream wants to send you.
